Tayside Trip to Arbroath

1st April 2012

Again the weather was kind to us with a nice sunny day (despite the weather forecast!!).

We were joined in Tesco by two cars from Central, welcome Ali & Drew and Ian & Jackie. There were four Tayside cars, 3 regulars and new member Raymond and his daughter.



At the appointed time it was roofs down and away for the  short drive to Arbroath where once we were parked up we were joined by 6 more cars! 5 Tayside, and Richard & Eleanor from Grampian in their Mk3.5 in a beautfull dark blue metallic car! new Tayside couple from Carnoustie, another from Montrose. John & Sandra, Alec and Tom. Then a visitors by way of a Subaru!!!! in the guise of Tayside members Alex and Carol.

I went and spoke to Rebecca who was one of the organisors who let us park offroad and together.



Off people went for tours around the lovely Hospitalfield House, what a place packed full of history, a small craft fair was held in the large tea room and you could go around the lovely gardens out the rear of the property. What a surprise for us, we have went past this place umpteen times over last 40 years and never knew it was there!!

After all had been seen and done, we took to the cars again for a short run to Forfar via the back roads where some then went their own way leaving 5 cars to head to Meigle via Kirriemuir where again we split the first three heading to Dundee and the last two heading to Perth and beyond and home.

Many thanks to all who came as it turned to be a fab day and a good time had by all.

Regards, Tom Jen & Jake
