Tayside Spring Weekend

Friday 4th to Monday 7th May 2012


After our chat at Glamis on Sunday past, I have arranged a weekend away to the Isle of Skye.

Accomodation has been sourced and booked for those who had shown an interest is going.

The intention is to have a couple of runs over the w/end possibly over the bridge to Applecross Via Plockton, Lochcarron, Strathcarron and Kishorn, over Britains only Alpine pass the, "Bealach na Ba"  (if road to Lochcarron has reopened by then! hopefully it will be). Then maybe a shorter run around Skye, visit the Talisker distillery and have lunch in Uig.
  Runs are only a suggestion by me, final decisions will be made over Fridays evening meal and a drink or two ! by those who are there. 



Please look at Blairdhu House for more details.


Blairdhu House now fully booked,Neighbours B & B has rooms available.Please reply to me so that the landlady at Blairdhu will do the bookings.

Good news folks, recieved call from Paul, Ac at Cheshire and North Wales to tell me that 16 cars plus members of thier group are heading north to Scotland the same weekend as us.
Have agreed to meet/join us for the run to Applecross and will meet at "Eileen Donan" Castle in Dornie on the Saturday and in Granton on Spey on the journey south on Monday. Brilliant eh !!

Our Route to Kyleakin will be (if all agree) Dundee.Perth,Lochearnhead, Tyndrum (breif stop at Gree Wellie) then depending on members view either via Glen coe and all the traffic or via Connel Bridge to Ballachullish,Fort William,Invergarry, Sheil Bridge and on to Kyleakin. Total which ever route we take approx 220 miles

Thanks for all your efforts in organising a super weekend, good company, nice weather (not sure how you managed that one), pleasant B&B, fantastic roads through stunning scenery, meeting up with cheshire & north wales bunch. All in all a very enjoyable weekend.

Please, please, pretty please, can we do this again next year? Never have I had so much fun with so many miles, with so little mpg and so many calories, in such a short space of time. It was simply brilliant to have so many empty roads to share with our chums from Cheshire and North Wales...and the weather!! Superb.

Many thanks to all who managed to come on this trip to Skye.Fantastic weekend, stunning scenery, great company,lots of laughs, food excellant.
The runs on all days were "out of this world" straights,bends,twistys, tunnel,yumps we had it all and all our wee cars were well up for it too. Richard we loved our return to our digs via Achnasheen,Strathcarron and Plockton was superb ! sitting here smiling at the thought of it !
  And like Alex say would'nt it be great to go again next year !!!

Hi all, on behalf of the Cheshire and North Wales I would like to extend a hearty thanks for the brilliant hospitality towards us in playing hosts for the Applecross Pas run.
Tom and Jen played a blinder in the organisation and the run up to Applecross was a sight to be believed, nearly 24 cars in line snaking their way up. Lunch was at Applecross campsite which went down well especially cakes to die for.
Tom yet again did us proud by meeting up with us at Grantown  on the Monday morning and leading us down south through some amazing roads and scenery and again topped off with lunch at  Spittal of Glenshee hotel. Thanks also to Richard and Maureen for playing co-hosts on the run down.
You guys have an amazing country which quite literally blew us all away especially as the sun shone all weekend. Talk is a foot of a repeat visit in 2014.
Cheers all.
Thanks again Tom and Jen and will see you at Tatton on June

It sounds a fantastic trip and we are so sorry we couldn't make it. 

For those who don't know I can't drive at the moment but I am due to have an operation in a couple of weeks time which will hopefully sort things out.

Fingers crossed we will be OK for future events (even if not immediate ones !)

Alex, don\'t know if I can wait a whole year. Might need to head over before that and get another fix of plockton to sheildaig via the pass, it was soooooooooooo good!!!

Richard...I've got my bags packed and ready to go back next weekend. Only thing stopping me is the need to spend the rest of the year building up brownie points...and before you ask, I do know where the cheese is kept in the house.
