    Hi folks, we're planning another run for Sunday the 4th of June.

    The plan is to meet and start at Broxden Services in Perth before taking the scenic route through to Braemar Castle and the town of Braemar where we'll stop for lunch before enjoying some more twisting and exciting roads in the afternoon.

    Our lunch stop will be at the Braemar Highland Games Centre which has been kindly organised by Jim and Liz.

    After lunch we'll jump back in our MINIs and take the A924 across towards Aberfeldy before dropping down towards Crieff and our final destination of Crieff Visitor Centre. Here's hoping there's a few scones left by the time we arrive.

    Start Time: 10am for a 10:30am start
    Start Location: Broxden Services, 2 Broxden Ave, Perth PH2 0PX

    Expected Arrival at Lunch Stop: 12:30pm
    Lunch Location: Braemar Highland Games Centre.

    End Time: Crieff Visitor Centre, Muthill Rd, Crieff PH7 4HQ
    End Location: 4pm

    Add us please Ali and we would prefer to finish in Banchory as we have relatives in Stonehaven who we could visit after. Booking tables for lunch sounds like a good idea too, we’d be up for that. Cheers, Dave and Barb.

    I'd prefer it if the run came back down as well, otherwise I'd just stick the sat nav on and do the boring road home.

    Put Liz and Jim M down as probable please - see below:

    As we live in Banchory, we could help with any aspect of the run that needed assistance, such as a scenic route back south if required (I have them from the Jaguar Runs I organise). I think we are okay for the date, Sunday 4th of June, but will confirm once a few other things clarify. Obviously would not come down to Perth to make the start, but would hope to join you for lunch. If you wanted alternative suggestions, we would recommend the Raemoir Garden Centre, which has both a restaurant and a café and the food is really good - also can arrange group parking so the cars are all together. There is also opportunity for some retail therapy if that were required.

    Perhaps other Northeast members could come out for the lunch too?

    Hi all,

    Meant to say that I believe there is actually a Classic and "Interesting" Car Show in Perth City Centre on Saturday, Jun.03.23 if anyone were interested. Could allow folks to make a weekend of it by attending the show on Saturday and then with an overnight stay, be ready for the early start on Sunday Morning for Ali's Run to Banchory.

    I am down to attend the Perth event in the Jaguar, I was there in 2022 and it was really fine to be at a car show and not parked in a muddy field. Last year it took place on Tay Street, alongside the river, and the street was closed off to through traffic. A good crowd of visitors, plus there was bands playing throughout the day as well. Plus the sun was shining.

    Jim M
