River Tay Run
Sun 12th Aug 2007
organised by Tayside Scotland

Car Count : 16
[ show event report ]

Starting from the Forfar Road, Dundee, we show you how to travel to Perth missing out all but 50 yards of the A90! Hugging the river to Glencarse we head up into the hills, stopping briefly to admire the breathtaking views of Perthshire from above Perth.

After stopping at The Meikleour Hotel for what should be an excellent lunch we drop down through little-known countryside and skirt the edge of Perth, reappearing at Bridge of Earn ready to head East along the South bank of the Tay, finishing appropriately beside the RRS Discovery.

What a super day! Many thanks to Colin and NS(S) for organising the run and for showing me how it's done! It was great to be on so many new roads and see the sights that are not so far from home. The company was excellent too. Top down weather all the way home in our wee convoy of 2.

Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed our day, seeing many roads around Dundee we never knew about, great Lunch venue too, nice to see some old friends and meet up with some new ones. Many thanks to Colin, Alex and Liz for making it a friendly and excellent day.

yep- good day (even though the wee boy could only manage half of it)- and learned a few "wee shortcuts" te boot.

Thanks to Colin, Alex, Liz and everybody else for making our first run (of many) so thrilling (For "Thrilling" read 'no traction in an automatic on corners equals breathtaking driving' Ahem !).
We had a great day out and as soon as we hit perth, the sun was out.. we had a nice cruise back up through Dundee then along the coast road to Arbroath and onto Montrose.. Leaving Kay and heading off to my house in Aberdeenshire, I reflected on a fun day. Cruising home in the Roadster on a Sunny evening was fab!
Great to meet my new Mazda friends from Carluke who I waved at months ago when I was down there.

Many thanks to Colin, Alex and Liz for a fantastic driving day out.
Wonderful roads in the Tay valley. The rain just added to the fun.
This was our first run and the drive from Currie was well worth it.
Cheers all !!
