Not you as well Adam :!: Right, from now on nobody else is allowed to let work or anything else prevent them from enjoying this trip. [-X

Have a great time at Forge instead Adam and Sophie, that is looking like a fun day out at least. :thumright:

Sorry to read this Adam, but as you say "there is always next year" plus the Forge Motorsport Day will keep you occupied having fun anyway.

Big Scottish Road Trip 2016!!! - 9th/10th/11th Sept

Guys!
If my car is fixed before then, I'll break her back in with this road trip. I've booked the Caledonian in Ullapool for Fri and the Norseman in Wick (Bank Guest house full) for Sat.
Hope I'm not too late to be added

Thanks Chris, that is about 55 miles or an hour from the hotel I stayed at last time according to Google Maps.

Hi Richard. Yes I think so and yes it would be good to meet up and head for Corbridge together. :thumleft: I was considering staying at the same hotel at Teeside airport again, so if the departure from Corbridge is at 16:30 we could meet there or nearby at about 14:30 and give ourselves plenty of time to get there and have a break at Corbridge while we wait for the others to join us.

Nice car James 8) (but will it be as much fun on the 'Mad wee road of Sutherland'? ;) )

Hi Brian, happy to meet up at your hotel and we can run up from there.

Chris, I think it would be a good idea to book a table at the steakhouse in Falkirk as you suggest.

BTW...

28 days to go!!!

I make that a table for 9 so will get it booked for 20:00 so we can arrive at the Travelodge, dump the bags, quick freshen up then go eat.
Heck it's getting close, note to self " get more A4 paper!"

I looked at booking the Scottish Steak House but thought that whilst looking excellent it would be an expensive first night meal and have therefore booked a table for the 9 of us at 20:00 on the Thursday night after our little trip up to Falkirk at the Brewers Fayre which is just down the road from the Travelodge.

Please follow the link to view the menu https://www.brewersfayre.co.uk/pub-rest ... lkirk.html

4 weeks from today at this time we will be breakfasting in Ullapool and checking our cars before a great days driving.

See you all soon.

Looking at picking up a decent dashcam before the trip so I can record some of it again. Any suggestions from you guys? Seen some good reviews for a few but they are £££. Probably only looking to spend £100 max.

It is with deep regret that myself and Lesley won't now be able to come.. We've had a major setback with the house and I'm not 100% happy about the car to be honest. So just can't take the risk on such a trip, I've already cancelled all our hotels, I'm totally gutted as it was so good last year :(

Can someone please amend the list accordingly and I'm very sorry for the short notice (especially to Chris who will have prepared the guide no doubt). But sorting the house is our top priority right now!

Thanks and hope you all have a wonderful time and all stay safe :thumleft:

I feel for you both as I am sure everyone else does too. You have both worked through so much since the flood and are still on the home straight, the finish line just got moved.

No probs with the road book, I was actually going to print them tonight so good timing with your post.

All the best to you and Lesley, we will try not to have to much fun in your absence!
