If by some miracle you've never driven the length of the Cairn O'Mount, then join Colin on a run north on one of the region's best roads.

We start at the Toyota Garage, Forfar Road, Dundee (Google Maps DD4 9FF) and head north up the pretty way, avoiding Forfar and all but 3.5 miles of the A90! After crossing West of the A90 we hit Fettercairn and go up and over the Cairn O'Mount. Peeling off towards Deeside, we skirt Aboyne and end for lunch at the Victoria Restaurant in Dinnet at 12pm.

In the afternoon we have a middle section which takes around some Deeside roads (which can be missed out time permitting), then we head back down over the Cairn O'Mount and through Edzell for our final sprint down the motorway.ot around Deeside before heading back south.

Colin is pleased to take names for this event by e-mail (mx5_nss@btinternet.com) and the North Scotland forum of this Web site, or by phone.

Thanks for having Marty & me along today.  Sorry it was only for part of the way but good fun, nonetheless.  In my defence, I was over the Cairn twice yesterday enroute to and from the Arrochar area.  Glad the weather gods of the NSE area took kindly to your foray into their countryside!

Thank you so much for a cracking day and the opportunity to meet some of you via a fun drive and most enjoyable chatty lunch. I was planning to take a little longer to run the car in but I think I can consider that is now done!! I was also planning on a sun tan a bit later in the year - consider that is now done also!!

Thanks Colin for yesterday,great run fab views and grub !
Should have listened to you about the best way home !
Im sure that 45 years ago the Glenshee road was a lot straighter and smoother !!!

Thanks again Colin for a superb day out. Thoroughly enjoyable drive, company and grub.....not to mention the weather...magic! Just a pity there wasn't a conclusion to the gas cylinder discussion. Still, something to look forward to on the next run.
