Easter Egg Rolling Competition


For our 2014 Easter weekend we’ll be returning one of the very best areas of Scotland in which to enjoy driving your MX-5, Ullapool, Wester Ross.

This is a wild and beautiful area of Scotland, dominated by imposing mountains and breath taking scenery. When you include some of the very best MX-5 style roads in Europe the area is absolutely worth visiting whatever the weather.

Read all about our previous visits to this area in 2011 and 2013


Ullapool



Our accommodation for two nights will be at The Royal Hotel, Garve Road, Ullapool. IV26 2SY Tel: 01854 612181
