Many thanks to all the hardy souls who made there way to the "Horn" today, the rolls, tea and coffee was enjoyed by all.



After a short time we were off around beautiful Perthshire, (not that we saw a lot of it as for most of the time it was shrouded in true "Scotch Mist" !!). Our route took us via "Meikelour Beech Hedges" looking wonderful in there bronzes and gold colours,then over back roads to Dunkeld for brief toilet stop.

Back on the road again towards the "Sma Glen" turning right towards Aberfeldy, left then towards Kenmore where we left the main road to go down the south side of Loch Tay which we saw briefly through the mist. Onto Killin the road has gotten far worse this year what with ruts, potholes and many patches, sorry folks (check your cars for any damage but don't tell  me OK!!!)

We stopped at our usual stop in Killin drew into the car park of  the "Falls  of Dochert Hotel" bad news I'm afraid it was closed!! hopefully just for the winter. No problem though over the bridge was the "Capercaillie" where we all trooped in where were treated to a wonderful meal which was served quickly by two cheery young girls.

Our return journey took up to the Lix Toll garage where we briefly split up (Graeme was needing fuel) then on down Glen Ogle where met our the other errant cars who had kindly stopped, down to Lochearnhead then to Crieff, Methven (where Alice left us), Perth where we split up leaving myself, Alex and Malcolm to head back to Dundee.

So in spite of the weather a great day out had by all, thanks to, Eddie and Joan, Malcolm and Marti plus Graeme from grampian crew. To the others, Alice, Alex, Malcolm, myself, Jenny and Jake, thanks once again.

Look forward to meet all Tayside members at our AGM in February 2012

Another great day out, 130 mls
for me, some will do a lot more, thanks Tom and Jen. and everyone else for your company.

Excellent day out - thanks guys.
Coming back in the dark, I was being followed along the A90 by a car with blue lights in the grille, which held me back in my pursuit of Tom and Alex. When the car passed me it turned out to be Keith with his pesky blue neons that I was seeing.

Another braw day out with the top down despite the weather. Thanks to all for the excellent company...and by the way Malc, since when did a BMW driver concern themselves with the rules of the road?

A grand day out!  Thanks to Tom for putting it together and to everyone else for their company.  We stopped at Scone for a cup of tea with friends and are just in the door.  We also had to pop in to Tesco to redeem a voucher and, guess what, they gave me another one!  Plus one for 5p per litre off my fuel!

Sorry - it was Graham with the blue lights in the grille.
My dementia must be getting worse.

Hi Malc, never mind mate keep popping the pills and eat more carrots to help you see in the dark !! lol  !!
  Glad all enjoyed it despite the weather.

Great day out Tom, thanks. great to see more join in from Grampian. Sorry about the petrol... got a bit short not expecting 320 m for the day. Yes I headed back along the A90 as shorter run over the mountains. Did not fancy going from Blairgrowie to Braemar crawling though the mist.
They be bright LED side lights and not in the grill. Them would be illegal. Those fitted are \"E\" legal and very effective. Despite the misty conditions it was a great MX-5 experience day. Maybe some of you Taysiders would venture up to Grant\'s next week! See Alex not uploaded the pics yet! Love to see please Alex.

Sorry there's just the 4 photies, but there wasn't much point taking a lot of pictures of grey mist with grey mist in the background. Anyone got their cars cleaned yet?

14th Nov 2011 17:53 :: liathach
Agree about photos of mist with a grey mist background! Not worth it.
Car not washed yet.  Must do the M-B first as it is manky following two trips up and down the A90.
