Friday 23rd : Some people have taken the day off, others are finishing work at various times. Taking this into account anyone that would like to head up the A9 in convoy should meet at Ballinluig services with the view to leaving at the following times at 2pm, 5pm and 7pm.
Friday evening : Weather permitting we are planning a small run involving the Lochindorb loop used on last years tour. Bring your own throw away BBQ and food as we will stop at Lochindorb beach. We will meet in the main street in Granton on Spey 7ish and leave at 7:30pm hopefully returning around 10pm. (Those people arriving later can meet at Lochindorb)
Saturday 24th : Suggest arrival at Dalwhinnie from 9:15 am this will allow time for Tour packs to be handed out before a small briefing at 9:45 am. Highland Tour starts at 10 am. The draw for the free entry for those that entered before the 1st closing date will take place in Dalwhinnie before the start at 10 am. Time from Granton to Dalwhinnie is around 40 mins, i suggest people leave no later than 8:30am. Please allow an hour.
Please ensure you have the capability to complete 100 miles petrol wise as this is the distance from the chance to fuel at Dalwhinnie to the next station. The total distance for this years tour is in the region of 150 miles.
- The first tour stop and major photo opportunity is after around 50 miles, a raffle draw will take place there with the chance to win a bottle of whisky.
- The next organised stop is after another 40 miles of driving and will be the main break of the day and a chance to show the cars and have a natter over lunch break.
- The final loop of the day ends just outside Granton on Spey with an organized BBQ at around 6pm.
- The route this year has a bit of everything and people are encouraged to stop along the route for photo opportunities.
Sunday 25th: Free to all, all welcome. 11am meet at Craggan [ http://www.cragganoutdoors.co.uk/location.html ]. A cafÃ© is onsite for refreshments. Thoughts are for those heading south to have a run to Perth via the Lecht and Glenshee leaving around 2pm.
