This year’s event has something to please all tastes with highlights ranging from a truly memorable scenic drive through stunning, local scenery (route subject to change due to weather, traffic and time restrictions) to Scottish entertainment with marching pipe bands culminating with, for those more romantically inclined, a very colourful and atmospheric firework display.
The celebrations start on Friday 26th August with a rendezvous arranged at Caerlaverock Castle before commencing a leisurely drive through picturesque scenery, along winding coastal roads, arriving at our base for the weekend, the award winning Brighouse Bay Holiday Park. An informal evening at the onsite bar and restaurant to meet and greet participants will I’m quite sure, ease our way gently into a fun packed weekend.
A spectacular scenic drive on Saturday 27th has been organised together with a number of interesting stops and photo opportunities, concluding with an early evening meal at Arden House Hotel in Kirkcudbright, affording ample time to experience the annual Kirkcudbright tattoo and firework display later in the evening. For those members still feeling energetic and wanting to swap stories and reminisce about the good old days, the onsite bar is open late.
On Sunday the club has a date at the annual classic car gathering but before settling down to a relaxing bout of tyre kicking, there is a more sedate scenic drive organised by our hosts which includes a stop for breakfast/tea/coffee. Kirkcudbright hosts the classic car show in the centre of town, perfect for access to local shops and a local farmers market which is held on the same day. To end such a perfect weekend, the finale is a trip to sleepy Kippford for a relaxing drink and yummy pub grub, whilst of course, relaxing looking out over the Urr Estuary.
