Down Memory Lanes

Sunday 25th June 2017


Meet at 10:00 for a 10:15 departure

Meeting point

Sainsbury's, Strathaven

For our June Sunday run we will drive down to the borders and a visit to the 20th annual Moffat Classic Car Show which is one of the premiere classic car shows held in Scotland every year.

We will start off at Strathaven, travel via Muirkirk, Douglas and Abington to Moffat where we will visit the show for about 1.5 hours. How many cars will you see there, where you can say  - ‘I had that one and that one and that one in my youth’?
If you don’t want to visit the show (entrance fee £5.00 pp) you can walk into Moffat and pass the time over a cup of coffee.

Once you have relived memories of when motoring was more relaxed and enjoyable (MX-5 driving excepted) will we reassemble and head for St Mary’s Loch and over the hills via Meggat and Tala dams to Bigger and our final stop and a late lunch at The Mill Inn, Coulter, arriving about 2:30.

Classic cars to view and classic roads to drive. See you there.

Lunch will be at The Mill Inn Coulter at around 2:30pm

Any 3 Courses for £18.50
