I hope you can get some positive input in your country.
I'm a 1st Responder-FEMA-Homeland Security in the U.S, and something I learned about bugging out is this:
Consider what is located 20 miles N, 20 S, 20 E and 20 West of your location bugging out from? Town? Ocean? City? Mountain? What?
And if you bugged TO there...other folks from 20 miles in all direction prob will ALSO choose your final spot as theirs too....so...what is 20 miles in all 4 directions from there?
I'm guessing the end result will surprise you about getting somewhere safe and by yourself! Good luck tho!

The thing is the terminology.....don't bug out......bug in.....dig....dig....dig....your house is private...and somewhat secure.....so dig dig dig.......your newly created underground space will be your new environment.... Make sure you make it very concealed and secure....bug in......the new bug out.

Probably been said already, but we are surrounded by the sea. There are thousands of sailing yachts.
Head to the coast then take off. You can make drinking water easily and carry almost a year's worth of food in a reasonable sized boat.

Plus of course those of us who actually live in the wilds of Scotland? We're not exactly going to be welcoming in all of these 'bugging out' city dwellers with open arms.
Resources are not plentiful up here, the people already here could probably ~just~ live off the land. But not if the cities empty and everybody heads for the wilds.
So I suspect you would see a lot of trees felled across roads to block traffic. And, see how far the bugging-out-ers get on foot.
That said, the idea of heading for some of the largely uninhabited islands off the West Coast is a pretty good one. But remember to take desalinisation kit with you. Oh, and fuel. Because none of those islands have any trees, so no wood to burn to keep warm...

Then you are perfectly within your rights to remain south of the border and perish or be controlled by TPTB should any SHTF scenario actually take place. Separatist attitude, dam right. 45% and rising.
