Depends if I get lost on route as Sophie amg bleep bleeps off in the distance.

Were at Dumfries the night before so won’t take even me that long to get there. Not missing a drive like last Scot trip.

If "The Square" doesn't have spaces to park, the Drymen icon, on the attached map, is the location of the car park I suggest using.

I'll be in Drymen about 10.15 to meet those who are coming on the morning run, and should be back about 11.45 to meet those who aren't.

"Practically a celt" would have qualified you for the meet.

Shame you aren't coming, it would have been good to catch up with you again Russ. Never mind, there's always next year.

I should be there for about 10 then in that case!

Know the carp park you mean - Drymen Inn is a bit of a favourite haunt in the summer.

Brilliant day out! Thanks again to Dave for organising and everyone that came (especially those from further afield).

Haven’t had such a fun day out in a long time!

A big thanks to Davie for organising this fantastic trip, cheers mate. It was great to meet up with the members I hadn't met before, as well as those I had previously. Hopefully this will be the first off many to come. Anyway, I'll post some pics up tomorrow as I only got in half an hour ago due to stopping for fuel and a coffee.

Expecting to arrive first in Drymen, I was surprised to find everyone was waiting for me.

It was a beautiful day for the time of year, and, after a run up the side of Loch Lomond, we returned to Drymen for a nice lunch in the Clachan Inn. We then headed to Lennoxtown, over Crow Road to Kippen, and then past Port of Menteith to Callander and Kilmahog, where we stopped for refreshments, before completing the loop by heading through Brig O Turk and taking the Dukes Pass back to Drymen. Shame we ran out of light, although the single track in the dark was not in the plan, it was certainly focusing.

A big thank you to those that came along, especially those who made the effort to travel all the way up from "south of the border", and I was really pleased to meet "locals" Rab and his wife, Paul and his friend, and Eddie (hope you made it back in time for the milk run). Glad you all enjoyed the day. I finally made it home just after midnight, after staying on with Myk and Debs at their hotel for a lovely meal (thanks) and some craic.

I now have the task of editing my GoPro footage which I'll post that later this week. Hopefully!

And then ….. I'll dig the road atlas out again and start looking for a run for next time.
