Hi Lou your passports were checked on entering into Spain
There are no exit checks leaving Gibraltar by land.

Yes, our passports were checked by the Spanish border force on entering Spain on the way out of Gibraltar.

With the announcement of who is in each of the traffic light system, which has got to be yet another example of the incompetence of those making decisions, can I take a holiday in Spain from the UK, by flying to Gib, renting a car there then driving into Spain with no problems, then do the opposite on the return, and hence enter the UK with no form of quarantine ?

No. You have to declare on your locator form that you have been in Spain within the last 10 days, which will trigger home quarantine, unless of course you return to Gibraltar, stay for 10 days before flying back. Telling lies on locator form is a criminal offence, punishable up to 10 years in jail.

Moronic advice , dont do it should be the advice , its the sheer stupidity of people bending the rules and breaking the law thats cost thousands of lives, theres a very good reason Spain is not on the green list , if anyone is moronic enough to go to Gib and sneak in to Spain I hope they get caught and prosecuted.

The UK government are morons for not putting the whole of Iberia on the green list.

Disagreeing with a law is not a defence to deliberately breaking it.

I think Iberia should be worried about the British spreading the Indian variant.

Why , because you can end up more dead from the Indian variant? , your comments make so sense.
You condone and advise on illegal travel in a pandemic , not too bright are you.

Wind your neck in. I was merely stating what one would have to do if they decided to go ahead with the OP's plan.

What is your interest in Iberia? I suspect you are yet another UK national living in the UK commenting on an expat forum.
