Chris's Border Run

Meet at 09:45 for a 10:00 departure.
Abington Motorway Services,
South Lanarkshire.

Junction 13 M74

This run takes us on some brilliant MX-5 border roads. The Mennock Pass, the Devil's Beeftub, Meggit and Talla reservoirs before stopping at St Mary's Loch tearoom for a short break.

The Mennock Pass and St Marys Loch

We then head back up St Mary's Loch before turning towards Innerleithen. Bypassing Innerleithen, we follow the Tweed upstream on the back roads to Peebles for lunch. As we have no formal lunch venue planned you will be free to explore the town and its many lunch venues.

After lunch we leave Peebles and drive through Biggar to the end of the run at  Lanark loch.

I was in the MX-5 travelling the wrong way at the Talla reservoir! First time I've driven that part of the country, brilliant little road.

Thanks for a great run.  Pity about that HGV out of Peebles seemed like a fun road.
