I must unsubscribe from this thread as it keeps making me want sign up again.
For you new folks signing up it really is a most awesome drive, take a good camera and DashCam for the best memories.

Wonder if we can have request stops.

I vote for a quick stop in every distillery en-route (except Dalmore. I've been to Dalmore) ;-)

Chris, Dalmore, Glenmorangie, Balblair, Ardmore, Old Pulteny, Glen Ord and Wolfburn as well a couple of gin distilleries.

You can't cross the border and not trip on a distillery or two ;-)

And, at a push, could squeeze into Talisker on Skye and Highland Park and Scapa in the Orkneys as well.

I'd need 3 weeks to do that (including all the drinking).

So, was at Machine Mart today and decided to buy a 20 Litre proper metal Jerrycan.

That should alleviate the range anxiety during the weekend ;-)

Bring it on!

Range anxiety is nothing compared to leading the convoy round blind corners and over blind brows for a couple of hours on those single track rock walled roads. Ben is a true hero for doing that, and Hannah for being navigator with him.

Range is a bit touch and go at times but if you top up at every opportunity you're fine, even when pressing on.

Well, I'll bring the jerrycan and have it as a backup for the group.

Straight exchange: 1 litre of petrol = 1 pint of beer
