    Hi folks,

    With things heading the way they are, there's potential for us to organise the first NMS run of 2021.

    There are, of course, still factors for us to consider. Whilst we have freedom to travel, many facilities are still operating at reduced capacity. Social distancing measures also remain in place. We will, of course, continue to monitor things and adjust plans accordingly.

    Assuming all goes well however, our first post-lockdown run of 2021 will take place on Sunday the 20th of June.

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

    Start Point: 10am for a 10:30 start at Abington Service Station ML12 6RG.

    Lunch Stop: Drumlanrig Castle, DG3 4AQ

    End Time & Location: Around 3pm back at Abington Service Station, ML12 6RG

    Run notes: Picnic Run.zip

    Total Run Distance: Around 100 miles

    From Abington, we'll head north along the Roman Road to Bigger and loop down past Tweedsmuir before a picnic lunch within the picturesque grounds of Drumlanrig Castle (weather permitting). After lunch, we'll enjoy some more of the area's great roads before finishing back at Abington Service station.

    A picnic lunch should allows us to make the best of a (hopefully) warm and sunny summer's day whilst also adhering to any social distancing requirements. So that people have plenty to enjoy both their picnic plus some of the short scenic walks around the castle grounds, we'll be stopping at Drumlanrig for at least an hour (maybe longer if folks need/wish). Our route is a little shorter than usual so we should have plenty of time to enjoy ourselves.

    For anyone that's interested, Drumlanrig Castle has a booking system for the Gardens & Adventure Playground. Prices can be found by clicking the following link:https://www.drumlanrigcastle.co.uk/p...book-online-2/

    If you wish to make use of the Gardens & Adventure Playground then I'd recommend booking tickets in advance. There's already quite a few of us signed up for the run and the facilities are also open to the general public so available slots may sell out.

    There is of course plenty of open space for a picnic and quite a few scenic trails for those who would prefer and these are all open free-of-charge to the public without any need for booking.

    1. Alasdair, Laura & Arwen (G&AP Booked)
    2. William, Megan & Christopher
    3. Matt
    4. Gemma & Mum
