    Many Thanks for organising today’s run Ali. Nice to see folks I haven’t seen for AGES and some I hadn’t seen before. Enjoyed the great roads and scenery. Also discovering the picnic area, coffee place and toilets (despite having been to Drumlanrig lots of times) was an unexpected bonus! Stay Safe everybody, TTFN.

    Thanks to everyone who came along today - hope you enjoyed it.

    It was great to not only get back out in the cars but to also have so many on a run again - there was a moment in the afternoon when we were winding down a hillside and I could just see a great line of fantastic looking MINIs in my rear view mirror. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take any pictures and my passenger was a little to occupied with munching raspberries and singing Baby Shark but it was a fantastic sight nonetheless.

    Our next event is Mega MNI Meet in two weeks time so if anyone from today (that's not already signed up) would like to join us then just let us know.

    See you all at the next one

    Yes, thank you Ali.
    Having not managed to join in for a few years this was just the ticket. Great roads and a great lunch stop.

    Thanks,

    Carol and I had (another) great day. Terrific route, and it's always magical seeing the Minis stretching in front and behind! Looking forward to the next one, and maybe making it to MMM.
    Thanks again to Ali for the first class organisation and chaperoning en-route.

    Thank you Ali.
    Great run out today. Fantastic first part of the run , super roads and so much fun being in the convoy. Diane literally had white knuckles.
    Castle beautiful but unfortunately I got mixed up and lost you all for the second part of the run as I was waiting at the top, where we first parked up, thinking we were leaving from the same point. Completed the run alone though. We had a ball but will pay better attention next time so nit to get split up.

    Ah - sorry to hear that Rab. I did think we might have been one short but with some folk heading off after the lunch stop it was an honest mistake.

    I'll be sure to double check next time
