The Halloween Run

Sunday 31st October 2010

Stirling Motorway Services,

Google Maps Link to Stirling Services

For the very last run of the 2010 season weíll be ending with a spooky Halloween drive.

After meeting up at Stirling Services we will be heading up into the Carron Valley on some of our favourite roads eventually stopping 64 miles later for a leisurely lunch at the Clachan Cottage Hotel, Lochearnhead.

As its Halloween we will also be having an optional Spooky Car Competition with a special prize being awarded to the winner during lunch. So get out the blood, eyeballs and spiders and join in the fun. He he he he he

Prepare to be scared.

Following lunch the homeward journey will take us over the Trossachs, hopefully itíll be a bright sunny day so the autumn colours should be quite spectacular. The run will end at Dobbies Garden Centre in Stirling where we will also be able to have a well earned coffee before heading home.
