A wee taster...deep in the lesser known parts of the Galloway Forest, one of the wee roads we'll be using next week.

Meant to say there is a hand car wash business operating from the Malletsheugh Car Park, spoke to the owner today, they will be there from 10.am, cost is £4.80. Not sure it will be of interest to anyone, but just in case.

Dot, it's a fantastic colour but, as you say it's a bugger to clean. No matter how much you try, when it's dry, you'll always find a bit you've missed. :evil:

Dot,

You'll find the more you clean and polish it, the easier it gets and the better it looks.

I use Meguiars products on our MK3 and I think it looks better now (9 months old) than it did when it was new.

Yep, thats what I meant...... as I said we've had our MK3 for 9 months now and guess who has NEVER washed it ?

Liz does what she does best......stands and watches and occasionally shouts out instructions.

Ok Kev, you can change your mind in the morning if you want.

As Events page is out of order just now, here are the directions to the Malletsheugh in Newton Mearns, Event start time is 10.30 for 10.45 depart.

If you're travelling on the M77 from Glasgow/Edinburgh
Leave at Junction 5, and stay in the right hand lane of the Exit Road until you come to the Junction Roundabout, signal right, and take the 3rd Exit, Signposted Floak, and Newton Mearns, at the T junction, Turn Right towards Newton Mearns, and follow the road for approx 0.7 miles, you will cross back over the motorway on the overhead bridge, take the next turn on the right after you cross the bridge into car park.

Coming from Lanarkshire and East Kilbride, take the Eaglesham bypass until it ends/meets with Jct 5 of the M77, take second exit Signposted Floak, and Newton Mearns, at the T junction, Turn Right towards Newton Mearns, and follow the road for approx 0.7 miles, you will cross back over the motorway on the overhead bridge, take the next turn on the right after you cross the bridge into car park.

is there going to be the usual convoy to the pub?

i would either suggest sainsburys - usual retail park or calderglen park - main car park.
maybe 10am or just before - 9.50am

just a thought.
