Smile The Mennock Pass

The final video from my run last week. From Mennock on the A76 up through the pass past Wanlockhead (the highest village in Scotland) to Leadhills.

That looked like a great road for blasting down.
Car sounded awesome as well.

This retirement is great, I'm having loads of fun in Mabel and getting plenty of single track driving in so that I'll be ready for the "Odyssey".

Great fun! I am amazed at the empty road. When I try to take a run like that, I am always stuck behind multiple cars.

Great bit of road that Dave and the driving was really good too. The video reminded me of something from the Lombard RAC rally days (if anyone is old enough to remember that ).

Nice work - must have scared one or two of the campers. The sheep have obviously seen it all before though
