We met as usual at Stirling Services and left about 10:30am heading for Aberfoyle via Thornhill and then over the Duke's Pass into the Trossachs. Past Loch Achray, Loch Venachar to Kilmahog and then up the side of Loch Lubnaig on the way up to Crianlarich and Tyndrum and eventually reaching Bridge of Orchy for lunch at 12:30pm. Passing The Green Welly at Tyndrum, David Jamieson spotted a couple of well kent cars and Gerry Hiorns and Gordon Smith and the their partners (they had been away for the weekend) joined us at Bridge of Orchy for a drink. After lunch the Fs went along the single track road at Glen Orchy to Dalmally and then up Loch Awe and over to Inveraray at Loch Fyne where we stopped and had an ice cream. At that point DJ threw the dummy oot the pram and said that he wasn't going home unless we did the "rollercoaster" at Loch Long. The rest of us didn't take much persuading, so we blasted down to Arrochar and what can I say, we all had smiles on our faces by the time we got to Whistlefield. Up over the military road to Loch Lomond and then we went our separate ways at Balloch. Hoods down all day, the scenery was spectacular and we must have covered just under 200 miles.
If the run on the 30th is as good as today's then we've all got something to look forward to.
