Colin (Mantagonist) & I will try and be at South Queensferry for the convoy. :) Does that Tesco sell 99?


That one doesn't from memory, the one behind PC World does.


Thanks Barry,, we may be coming via the A7 anyway so there are a few places to get high octane juice. :) See you Sunday.


The Tesco at Eskbank on the A7 does 99 if you didn't already know!

Looks like leaving ASDA ,Bridge of Dee, Aberdeen at 10.00 am should get us to the car park on the south side of the Tay Bridge to meet McKenzie just before 11.30. This allows for a short stop at Stracathro if required.

Cheers :park:

I think this is still a good rally point, just bear in mind there has been a lot of road works in that area recently.
For any interested, I should be there from 10:30am, so if anyone wants to join and convoy the 40minutes or so to Fernie, you are most welcome to tag along.

Convoy members will head off from Tesco at c 11:15am.
If you are coming over from the west and want to join up, you are very welcome.

Sounds good, after doing my taxi service and picking the troops up we should arrive at Tesco between 10:30 and 11am.

On our way... burning rubber to get home and put on the Xmas jumpers then grab keys to the little red beast.

Safe convoy and see you all soon. Leaving the house at 11.45am (almost home now)

What a lovely day.
Time to meet with friends, chat Saab, conduct a little bit of spirited driving while avoiding camera vans, and enjoying the very picturesque and posh Fernie Castle Hotel..... for only £20 a head in a lovely hotel suite, 3 course meal with coffee and mince pies!! :shock:

Great venue (and value) for the 10th UKS Scottish Xmas lunch.

Big thanks to Mckenzie for suggesting the venue, and to Jim for fronting the deposits for the meal.
Had a great time, and will pull the video together as time allows.

A few photos of the day as momento for now........
