Will try to send a route to as many as possible, as long as I know your coming, if you've posted on here and don't have one yet, then pm/mail me with a note of your mail address.

Chic,
I see you guys are in Bathgate, how long does it take to get to Loch Lomand from Livingston/Bathgate, just so we are not late getting to the Loch?

Cheers,

Andy

Directions to Loch Lomond Shores in case anyone does not know...

M8 to Erskine Bridge is easiest route as it saves all the traffic lights and cameras.

After crossing Erskine Bridge (60p)
Continue on the A82 signed Loch Lomond
At the Stoneymollan roundabout (exactly 10 miles from Bridge tollbooth) take 2nd exit for Balloch / Stirling A811
At next roundabout (bottom of hill) turn left signed Loch Lomond Shores
Follow signs to Blue car park.

:idea: PLEASE ARRIVE WITH FULL TANK OF PETROL :idea:
Esso station 4 miles after Erskine Bridge.

Not sure exactly about timescale but I think it will take about 1hr 30min

Got to get over the Kingston Bridge which hopefully will be quiet on a Sunday morning

I am sure there will be a few others travelling from the east so perhaps we can meet up with them somewhere - eg Harthill services - and travel through together.

Graeme might organise this no doubt grateful to have his sevices ofered for him :twisted:

LOL - just had a look at the route for the first time and it incorporates a lot of roads I was on last week during my holiday. We travelled from Glasgow up to Oban via Crianlarich .. stayed a night in the Falls of Lora hotel at Connel .. headed to Skye via Fort William and the ferry .. a night in Portree before doing the North loop in Skye .. over to Kingussie (Columba House Hotel!!) .. up the Cairngorms .. back to Kingussie for another night .. then finally back to Glasgow via Fort William and Oban again.

Some fantastic roads, but we weren't in the 5 and took Catherines 1.4 Honda Civic instead. It performed suprisingly well and still managed to rally it through some of the "stages".

Hope you all enjoy the run ..... I doubt I'll make it as I wouldn't like to drive those roads in convoy (would prefer to drive them at my own pace).

Chic
Have you installed a speed restricter in your car? An hour and a half from Bathgate to Lomond Shores? If you fly along the M8 and over the Erskine Bridge you should be there in around an hour easily. If you allow an hour and a half you will have time to stop at my house for breakfast. (This is not an offer!)
