    After trying to scout the route out today I think we may have stumbled across a better bit of road so we've amended the route details on the first page.

    Hi everyone, if there are any other NMS members in the Northeast of Scotland and wanted to meet up in Banchory and convoy out to Braemar to meet the others there for lunch and a chat, add yourself here and I will work with Ali to sort out the logistics.

    Hi, Is this for fast Minis as we only have a 1.5 and not the fastest driver, I would be keen to register an interest if possible however cannot confirm till nearer the time if that works?

    On my own wee journey around Scotland to England on the 4th (Inverness to Bristol via Glasgow) so can't make this one.
    Looks class though, have a great time everyone!

    Okay, so in conjunction with Ali, we have arranged for the lunch stop on this Run to be at the Duke of Rothesay Pavilion at the Braemar Highland Games Centre on Sunday, Jun.04.23. For info:

    We recently stopped at the Pavilion with the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club (see photo), on our way to our Spring Break at Crieff Hydro, and I have since spoken with Hazel, the Manager of the Visitor Centre and she would love to welcome the Minis there on Sunday, Jun.04.23. The new visitor centre, complete with a cafť / restaurant, at the field of the Braemar Gathering is very welcoming to car clubs, the pre-war Aston Martin Club will be visiting the day before our NMS visit.

    On our Jaguar stop on Sunday, we had a soup, sandwich and sweet treat type lunch, with tea, coffee and soft drinks also available. We were allowed to park the cars together on the apron of the field and there is no other location in Braemar where there would be sufficient space available to park a collective of cars for photo opportunities. Also, it is only a few minutesí walk back into the village for anyone who may want to visit the other eateries or attractions after we get parked.

    Please note that in Ali's original post, he mentions going to Braemar Castle, but this is closed temporarily for renovations, so the stop and parking will be at the Duke of Rothesay Pavilion. Directions: As you enter the village from the south, over Cairnwell, when you arrive at the left slip that takes you into the village proper, turn into the village and follow the main street all the way to the bottom. When you get there, it ends in a small roundabout, with a takeaway in front of you, bear left into the Games Field. As you approach the Games Field, there is an arch in front of you and the Pavilion on your left. Bear left to enter the car park but then immediately bear right to get onto the grassy apron of the Field.

    All being well, we will meet you on the final run in and lead as appropriate.
