Don't think you could compete with the train on a direct route like that tbh...if Wright Bros gave up on the 888 to Keswick, I do think a service to the Lakes would be worth a try.

It depends on the pricing, if it was only £15-20 for a return to Edinburgh I'd definitely consider it over the train

Hell would freeze over before I’d consider a non train journey between NE Eng and Scotland. The roads in north Northumberland are terrible.

Nearly 2hrs 30mins to Edinburgh by road for a journey which is roughly 120miles is dreadful. The A1 has been crying out for dualling for decades. The fact you can do Carlisle to Glasgow in just over an hour and a half in comparison is shocking. There's only 20 or 30miles extra on the East Coast run and that doesn't warrant nearly an hour's difference.
