For this ever popular run we can all look forward to driving on some of Argyll’s best roads. When you include a great lunch venue and a cruise down the water it all adds up to a perfect MX-5 club summer day out.

The run will start at Loch Lomond Shores in Balloch, from there we’ll follow the shores of the loch for a few miles before heading over the hills to explore the Rosneath peninsula. Then driving through Arrochar we’ll climb to the top of the Rest and be Thankful and wind our way through "Hells Glen" to our lunch venue at Lochgoilhead.

Lunch will be at:

The Shore House Inn
PA24 8AA

The Shore House Inn


This will be two courses, either:
Starter and Main or Main and Dessert

To start

Chef’s tomato & red pepper soup with crusty bread

Chef’s cullen skink fish soup with crusty bread

Home made chicken liver & brandy paté with Jim’s amazing oatcakes

Prawn Marie Rose

Main courses

Roast leg of lamb with roast potatoes, fresh vegetables of the day, gravy and mint sauce

Breast of chicken stuffed with haggis, wrapped in bacon and served with creamy whisky sauce, new potatoes and fresh vegetables of the day

Scottish salmon fillet with lemon butter, new potatoes and today’s selection of vegetables

Spicy vegetable fajita topped with melted cheese and served with crisp seasonal salad


Warm chocolate fudge cake with cream or ice-cream

Apple pie with cream, ice-cream or custard

Trio of Orkney ice-cream

After lunch we’ll head into the Cowal peninsula to Loch Eck and over the hills into Glen Finart and on to Ardentinny. Following the coast road we eventually arrive in Dunoon where we’ll cross the river Clyde on board the ferry to McInroy’s point in Gourock.

The Hunter's Quay to McInroy's Point Ferry

But the run doesn't end there, we climb the hills again passing Loch Tom, eventually ending the run at the River Inn, Houston.

Now the bad part, what will all this cost you?

  • Lunch will be £14 per head for two courses. (You can also have 3 courses for £17)
  • Single ferry crossing is £10.90 per car.
  • Single ferry crossing for driver and passenger is £4.00 each.
