Being the first run of 2015 and inclement weather forecast, we were pleasantly surprised at how many new and existing members joined us.

New members Kirsty and Ian, Fergus and Helen, met with Peter, Larry & myself at Tesco Dundee and Peter took us on some interesting back roads to Montrose where we met up with Gav and Robert who had offered to lead the next stage and who had organised lunch. 

Nine cars then set off, however had to stop after a few hundred yards as one car had a technical hitch with its horn – cue several “experts” gathered around an open bonnet whilst the ladies stayed inside the warm cars.

Shortly, we set off again, through driving rain and snow, hoping to get a good view between the Caterhuns – unfortunately it was a white out at the top!

After a very quick stop, we set off again, with one brave, or stupid, couple (Larry and I) with their roof down for a few miles – we were okay when it was snowing however when it changed to rain we had to surrender.
The snow did change our route slightly as we felt Cairn o’ Mount would not have been a good idea, so we instead took the low road through Edzell, Fettercairn and Auchenblae (saying ta-ra to Eddie on the way past) to our lunch stop at Castleton Farm.

We had a lovely lunch and it was a good opportunity to get to know the newer members and vice versa.

After feeding time, Fergus and Helen had to leave however Gav led the rest down the coast road back to Montrose, then 3 cars were left to continue down the coast to home.

Everyone agreed a great day was had by all.

Fun day today including the weather - nice to go sledging with your mates!  The Dundee 3 managed to get the tops down from Auchmithie. Sorry about the uploaded pics being upside down. I don't know why this happens and I don't seem to be able to get rid of them.
