The weatherman would call it ?sunshine and showers?. Anyone else would call it baking and deluge. The trip to Glencoe is always a special run. The scenery is just stunning and even bad weather just adds to the drama of the mountains. For most of the journey we ran top down. When there were showers and they were heavy, the fact that we were above 40 mph meant we stayed dry.

11 cars left Lomond Shores shopping centre and headed north along the banks of Loch Lomond (it?s difficult to describe two lanes of tarmac as ?Bonnie?) and headed towards a stop at Tyndrum where we met our old friends Bill, Linda and Ian. (NB the friendship is old, not Bill and Linda ;-)). The first of many downpours hit Tyndrum and we pulled out of the car park as it began to turn into a white water river. The first run through Glencoe was top up, there being nowhere to stop the cars to get hoods down.

After a leisurely lunch we headed back through Glencoe, this time with the hoods in their proper place. Then down the Glen Orchy road, although most peoples? driveways would be wider than this road, it?s a wonderful little twisty track.

We split at Crianlarich a hub of a place where people could head home the quickest way. Those of you who missed the torrents in Callander can count yourselves lucky to avoid the rivers running down the street!
