New Network Analyst user - confused with 'optimal' routing return

Hi folks,


So I have built my network dataset and I was trying to find the optimal route stopping at 4 locations. 


However when I solve the route, NA seems to route me the scenic route  not the most efficient (distance) that its meant to be prioritize.


Below is an image of what I mean, the red is the actual routing through NA.... there are no turn restrictions so I don't see why it shouldn't be following the blue line (my own line drawn in) that is most efficient from a distance perspective.



I cannot seem to work out why its doing this, am I missing something really obvious?
