Is there a meet near you?
 
Right then folks, we are having a wee meet and run in the North East of Scotland. Hopefully the weather will not get in the way this time, but then it is Scotland
The plan is to do the same run as we had planned for the 30th of January. Start at Stonehaven harbour and take a run up the Slug road to Banchory(A957), then taking a run up the A93 through Banchory, Aboyne and Ballater. Stop off in Ballater for a photo or two, then head back down the B976 on the south side of the River Dee keeping on this road until the turn off for the Cairn o Mount road (B974) stopping at the top for another photo op. From there we'll be going in to Fettercairn then onto the B966 for Auchenblae. From here we have a choice, either have a quick blast up the dual carriageway back to Stonehaven or take the back roads round the back of Drumlithie (narrow and twisty, but good fun if weather is ok!!)
Some really good A & B roads in that route and if the weather is on our side then it will be a fantastic 1st run of the year.
Hope to see a lot of you there folks. Keep your fingers crossed for the weather too

Should be bringing the new GTV along. I've been busy and it's now got a sump full of fresh oil, new air filter, 8 new plugs and new thermostat. Just the cambelt now, and it's booked into CP in Dundee next week in preparation! Need to get some good pictures of it next weekend !

Good stuff Simon, looking forward to seeing your new twinny. Hope the Brera does not feel too neglected now! Hopefully we'll have a few more joining us on the day
Cheers

Reckon an 11am meet at Stonehaven harbour for a blether then set off for about 11:30/12:00ish. Should only take just over an hour for you to get up from Fife Philip, is that late enough for you to get rid of the hangover?

Took a wee run round most of the route today, a fair bit of snow up in the hills but the roads are all fine. Had a good blast and took a couple of snowy pics from the top of the Cairn. Roll on Sunday

I think it was, and there was a fair bit of snow south of aberdeen this morning, but it doesn't seem to be hanging around for as long as it did a few weeks back. Hopefully it will be third time lucky!

The Cairn road is still sign posted as closed, but was clear on Tuesday. When i woke up this morning i thought FFS another weekend screwed! Hopefully it will shift in plenty time for a good run on Sunday

Yep I sure have, but it needs an alternator so i'd probably just bring the Punto anyway.....

Just taken a short drive up the Cairn o Mount. Happy to report that the roads are fine, so unless we get a fresh dump of snow overnight then it will be ok for tomorrow.
Meet in Stonehaven, down at the harbour. I plan on being there from about 11:30
Cheers

Looking at the weather, we are due clear skies, sunshine, but cold for tomorrow, so I reckon we'll be ok. See you at 11:30!

Well, what a day for a run! Beautful sunshine all day and a fantastic run up to Ballater. Roads were fine all the way, with only the more sheltered areas requiring a lift off from the right peddle!
Just a pity more of you couldn't make it as the roads were really quiet and Simon in his GTV and myself in the MiTo got the chance to let rip now and again.
Roll on the next one

Yes, fantastic drive and allowed the GTV to get a proper Italian tune-up! Not often seen the roads so quiet either.
