Many thanks to Glenys,Richard, Cath and Drew for organising an excellent tour to Galloway. Pleasant new coffee and lunch stops with fun roads and even a visit from the sun for a while

Wow that was a long run, over 330 miles just to go out for lunch, but well worth it. Discovered lots of great new roads that we definitely want to return to, and having lunch at the top of a cliff was just brilliant.

Many thanks to Glenis & Richard and Cath and Drew for organising the event and expertly guiding us all around their own special parts of Scotland.

All in all a great day out.

Great day out, re-visited some of the roads we were on over an Easter run years ago. Roads were great, lunch venue was inspired, right on the cliff top. Thanks to all who organised this run. It's nice to get out in an area where local knowledge is used for the routes.
