    Hi folks,

    Following the success of our first "post-lockdown" event, we thought we'd organise another MINI adventure!

    This time we'll take in a flying visit to Drumlanrig Castle and a scenic drive through the beautiful Leadhills, before finishing with a trip along the Moffat-Selkirk road (considered one of the best driving roads in Scotland).

    Start time & Location: 10am for a 10:30 start at Abington Service Station, ML12 6RG.

    Lunch Stop: Abington Service Station, ML12 6RG.

    End Time & Location: Around 4pm at Tesco, Galashiels, TD1 3AT

    Run Notes: Run Notes.zip

    Total Run Distance: Around 110 miles

    We'd like to stress that this remains a provisional date for now pending the continued suppression of Covid-19 and the relaxation of lockdown restrictions.

    To help us gauge interest, please let us know below if you'd like to attend and whether any passengers would be likely to attend with you. An indication of numbers will let us plan more accurately within the scope of any continuing restrictions.

    Additional Notes

    The Service Area was pretty busy yesterday when we visited. (Granted, it was a bank holiday Monday.) Depending on the weather, I'd strongly recommend folks bringing a packed lunch in order to avoid waiting times for food at the service area. There were no queues for the toilets.

    I'm also not sure whether some of the roads have been downgraded (since our last visit) from dual-lane to single-track or whether they're just awaiting line painting. With that in mind, please be extra cautious and considerate when passing any oncoming traffic.

    Finally, we may need to complete the first part of our trip in reverse, depending upon road works. Roadworks are scheduled to take place this week on some of the roads. While the roadworks are scheduled to be finished in plenty of time for our run, there is every possibility that they may not. If so then this will be communicated clearly before the run begins.

    Looking forward to Sunday!
