Trossachs, Cairngorms, Deeside and Whisky Country 15th 16th July 2023

Post by B21 » Thu Nov 24, 2022 3:40 pm

A set of both classic road trip roads along with some less popular but equally interesting extensions to amuse the discerning driver.

Starting at Stirling on Saturday and then taking in a wander up through the Trossachs before going up through the Cairngorms via the Spittle of Glenshee and then on through Royal Deeside and then onto Elgin for the Saturday night.

Sunday returns to Stirling via the great Tomintoul to Braemar road and on through the Spittal of Glenshee and then via Crieff back to Stirling.
We’ve booked 4 rooms for Friday and Saturday nights at £90 and £65 respectively.

Friday night is at the Highland Gate, Stirling with Saturday night is at the Premier Inn, Elgin.’

These are allocated on a first come, first served basis, however if you are not sure that you can commit please put yourself down as ‘interested’ rather than ‘definite’

Depending on numbers, anyone past the 4 room limit can book direct.

For logistics reasons this is restricted to 8 cars maximum.

Hotel prices and availability are much more challenging in 2023, and with folk’s budgets constrained, if you want to book cheaper / alternative accommodation please feel free.
