Exclamation Scottish members meet 4th Nov @ Loch Lomond

Thought I'd try and set up a lunch time meet and drive out for our Scottish members (though those of you south of the border would be welcome too ).

I'm proposing a meeting for lunch at the Clachan Inn in Drymen on Sunday 4th November. Just three miles from Loch Lomond, the Clachan Inn is the oldest registered licensed pub in Scotland (1734).

Whilst recently staying in the area Col and I enjoyed a lovely dinner there and I got talking to the owner who said they have a Porsche owners club who regularly meet there already, and he'd be happy to host us. Plenty of good parking out front and the surrounding area should provide some nice runs to chose from after eating.

This where I'm talking about …

Welcome to the Clachan Inn, Drymen ? Clachan Inn

If you are interested please reply in this thread asap., by 28th October at the latest, in order for me to book tables.

I can think of four members who may well be interested.

Roy @Royston
Gareth @Garfalls
Gary @GaryLaird
Matt @Giant Scotsman

There have also been quite a few new members joining from Scotland since I last tried this so hopefully ….

I can vouch for the Clachan Inn being a great venue! Shame I can’t make this date as would have been tempted to go back up for an overnight stay in Drymen! Have a great meet, look forward to the photos!

Great response so far, but looking to get a few more. Have to show those Porsche owners how a meet should be attended.

I've never been to Scotland before so I would definitely be up for this. It's a little too early for me to commit 100% but if you could put me down as a most likely, that would be great. Cheers.

Be great if you can make it Paul. I made it a lunch meet to give people who'll be travelling a distance time to get there. (Unlike all the meets down south which necessitate me leaving home at dark o'clock in the morning to make!)

You'd love Scotland. Once people make the effort to come up here, they usually return.

I could believe it mate. After watching your's and Col's video's of 'The Odyssey', I just knew I had to get up there one day. All being well, it will be sooner rather than later.

I've just spoken with the Clachan Inn and provisionally booked lunch for 12 people. They are happy to let me adjust the number either way nearer the time. However, as the restaurant only seats 38 in total, the sooner people confirm they're attending the better.

Good to see you are on the ball as usual Russ. Though if you'd read past the title you'd have seen that, although primarily meant to be for our Scottish members, I also added the proviso "though those of you south of the border would be welcome too".
