Meet at 10:30 for a 11:00 departure
Abington Motorway Services,
South Lanarkshire.

Google Maps Link to Abington Services

The plan is to meet at Abington services where our lunch orders will be taken before departure.

The run then takes us across the Mennock Pass and down through Nithsdale to Thornhill where we will have lunch at The Buccleuch & Queensberry Arms Hotel.

After a leisurely lunch we will head north over the Dalveen Pass back to Abington where the run will end.

The Mennock and Dalveen Passes

The run isnít a long one but bare in mind the distance required to get to the start and to get home from the finish.

Thanks to Gavin & Jim for the run and meal organisation today. Hope you had a good 2nd pass run as we headed west in nye on empty roads. The sun stayed with us all the way home, hope you had the same. P.S. received an email from Mazda marketing the other day with the link to MX5 and frizzy throwing! It's on YouTube if you search.
