What drive is this?

Postby graeme » Wed Jul 04, 2007 9:27 pm

I got an email from someone who went to the national in Edinburgh, who wanted to go on a drive they did then. This is what they say:

"... it was lovely and twisty and ended up at a lake with a small restaurant/gift shop and there was a steamer doing trips across the loch."

Any ideas? I can see it in my mind's eye, but I have no idea where it was. ISTR it was the same place that Behnam was interviewed for the piece on the BBC, which would put it out near Crieff somewhere.

Any ideas for nice drives based around Callander? They are coming up for a week before and including the Callander Classics.

I think you can get a boat at Loch Katrine......the road up is a turn off the Trossachs road that runs from aberfoyle to callander

I've had a look through my backups and found the route instructions for what I think the 2003 run was based on :

Hope that helps :)

Further to this I have just created a new page that now lists all club runs that have detailed route instructions available for them. This provides, at a glance, those runs we've done where you can d/load instructions (usually in MS Word format) and enjoy them at your leisure.
