:) Well i dont look like Nurburgring is happening this year..........So is anyone up for a Scotland trip in the middle weeks in July ?

Was thinking either camping in one spot and day runs away from camp or B&Bs around scotland covering the whole of scotland right around the top etc

Any Idea,s guys n gals ? We would have to plan it if there are a few of us to get booked into the B&Bs if we go that route

Would love to Ian, but if you are talking a week will need to check whether we can both get time off work.

The camping in random places is ok but TBH i dont fancy putting the tent up and down three or four times in a week, that why i thought of it as a base camp so to speak lol

The roads around Loch Ness (Fort Augustus etc.) are lovely!

I'd also recommend heading out to the west to Applecross. Brilliant!

I put a thread up with some pictures from the trip when I did it before (passenger, no Supra at the time) which I'll find. :)

Here was the post in fact. :)


Myself, Nick(amsweet), Lewis & Leith went on a trip for a couple of days, landing at Fort Augustus and then on the next day to Applecross on the West Coast.

The road around Loch Ness to get to Fort Augustus was awesome for a blast and then that road to Applecross (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bealach_na_Ba) was something else aswell!

Both the S2000 and the Evo V done great on them, mucho fun! Most definitely recommend the trip to anyone!

I got a few videos (mostly of the S2000 as I was in the Evo) which I'll get uploaded soon.

Here's some of the pictures I took though:-

Steph finishes work 14th July for the summer break - so I guess mr Wilding will be the same ;)

I need to check with work, but might be able to take some time off, failing that any of those weekends are currently good. :thumbs:

How much could you actually fit in in a weekend? I'd love to do a Scotland road trip but it's a long way up. :)

Probably not alot we could be just north of Glasgow in 4ish hours but what im thinking of is running up on the west coast passed Dumfries Ayr then past Glasgow and depending on how many days peeps have off work from there, looking for about 4 days at least if possable any more and we can run upto the top of scotland maybe ?

Yeah, I'm free after 5 on Saturdays and all day Sundays so could happily meet and suggest routes.

Had a nice run the other day all the way out the A93 from Aberdeen to Braemar and then carried on to the Cairngorms. That road leads back down to Perth again. Recommended. :)
