Perthshire Lochs Run, 23 Aug 2014​

Only a disappointing three (!) cars took part in this run held on a Saturday rather than a Sunday, this possibly accounting for what appeared to be more cars on the road than we normally experience.

We set off from Tesco Westhill with the roofs down, collected Scott & Margaret at Echt and continued to Braemar via the B9119 and the South Deeside road.  At Spittal of Glenshee, the lead car pulled off the main road for a comfort stop at the hotel - boy did they get a surprise!  It had burnt comprehensively to the ground about one week before so Helen had to hang on till Bridge of Cally where we had a scheduled coffee stop.  Surprising how a hotel which had been closed for some time could have such a serious blaze at 0400 in the morning.......

On then to Dunkeld via Loch of the Lowes, Aberfeldy by the back road, Amulree and the hill road to Kenmore (and even it had traffic on it!).  We decided to avoid the potholed road on the south side of Loch Tay and headed for Bridge of Balgie where we stopped for a bite to eat - large bowls of soup and fine sandwiches promptly served.

After lunch, we saw Tummel Bridge, Pitlochry, Moulin Moor, Alyth, Kirriemuir and Fettercairn on our way back to Banchory over the Cairn o'Mount.

The weather was very changeable, going from bright and sunny to very heavy showers within seconds which meant a good few stops to alter the roof positions!

As stated earlier, a disappointing response from members given that the run (held last August) had been specifically requested.  It was certainly a long day at 280 miles and perhaps a maximum of 200 miles is what we should aim for.
