I'm happy to announce I'll be running the Big Scottish Road Trip again this year (I have no intention of having another child around this time)
The dates are: Friday 14th September to Sunday 16th September
Well be starting at:
B&Q Super stores,
Well grab a bite to eat at the wee van in the carpark before fueling up and setting off.
Day 1 will be meeting at Inverness and having a wee get to know each other before having an amazing drive on some awesome roads finishing at Ullapool where we'll have tea and a chat.
Day 2 will be meeting up after breakfast before going for another day of epic driving and some great food finishing up in Wick for the night.
Day 3 is much the same as day two completing the circle passing Inverness before heading down the old military road finishing just north of the Forth road bridge.
I post this event up this early as I strongly advise people to book hotels ASAP. Remember book 1 night in Ullapool for Friday 14th September ( I have booked in at the Morefield Motel ) and 1 night in Wick for Saturday 15th September ( I have book in at the Nethercliffe hotel ). Feel free to book wherever suits yourself there's no need to feel compelled to stay in the same place although it can be nice to see familiar faces at breakfast. I used booking.com as the prices are OK and you get free cancellation before September should anything come up that you have to drop out.
Things to remember before putting your name down:
It's 3 days of pretty intensive driving on some old roads so it's pretty hard going on both the car and driver so make sure both are ready for it.
The cost - Its not massively expensive but expensive enough to need thinking about costs are roughly:
Fuel - 4 tanks for just the route we're doing - £300 (with premix)
B&B - 2 Nights B&B - £180 (roughly for a double)
Food and drink - I try to keep costs down but expect - £100 (probably not quite this much)
So all in a rough budget of say £600 all in so not too bad for a long weekend trip away and well worth it in my opinion.
Any questions please just ask, comment below to be added to the list and I look forward to seeing you in September.
