A tour of Argyll both Saturday and Sunday. Staying overnight in the Brander Lodge Hotel, situated 1 1/2 miles past the Loch Awe Barrage on the A85 near Taynuilt.
The Hotel is owned by Mx-5 owner and member Tony Schofield.
There are 20 rooms available at present, Please book this as soon as possible by phoning direct to the Hotel with your requirements, a £10.00 deposit will secure your booking.
Prices are :- £25.00 per person, (less 10% discount Tony has been offering club members for two years) per night, evening meal- still to verify but around £15.00 for 3 course.
Directions to Luss Visitor Centre...
M8 to Erskine Bridge is easiest route as it saves all the traffic lights and cameras.
After crossing Erskine Bridge (free)
Continue on the A82 signed Loch Lomond, Ignore first turn off for Luss Village, continue on A82, turn right at Lodge on Loch Lomond, signposted 'Luss Local Services' Park in Visitor Centre car park.
Esso station 4 miles after Erskine Bridge.
Let us know when you have booked and your name will go on the cast list.
I believe the Hotel is now fully booked, if you still want to join us you could book accomodation in Taynuilt or Connel and join us for the evening meal.

Another excellent weekend away. Great roads, fine food (and wine!) and superb company. Thanks to Douglas for excellent organising and leading the runs, special thanks to Gordon and Alison for all their efforts on the Pop Quiz, although I didn't enjoy being reminded of Jilted John's One Hit Wonder!.
It finally stopped raining when we got to Newton Mearns, so we finished the run with the top down once more.

A wonderful weekend in excellent company. Thanks to Gordon and Alison for keeping us entertained with the quiz and thanks to Douglas and all who helped in organising the run.

A brilliant weekend in very excellent company.
Thanks to Douglas for all the organising and Gordon for the interesting quiz, although I think "we was robbed" LOL.
Sorry I had to cut and run in Callander, but I think it was the right decision as the car coughed and spluttered into dreadnought garage(377 miles).

Great weekend again! Grub was spot on as was accomodation - lovely.
Cheers to Gordon & Alison for the quiz - don't know what was funnier, your dodgey record collection (honest they're ma grannies 78's), or some of the wrong answers folk had ???
Cheers Douglas for pulling it all together....thanks mate.
Did'nt allow Sunday's rain to dampen the spirits as the drive had a fairytale ending when the wicked witch of the north, magically turned into sleeping beauty and i got my cd's on for a change :-)
PS. In october, the B von R will be back on a run near you !!!!
