Today was an in your own time start so we eventually set off on the planned route to Loch Katrine where we had some time to kill before our sailing on the Sir Walter Scott steamboat.
Although our drive was short were some interesting roads and the views would have been super if it hadn't been raining.
The guys from the Caledonian Centre are masters at packing many MGs into small places.
Because of the roadworks at the M73/M74 junction we decided to head for Edinburgh, round the southern bypass and pick up the A68 home.
This was an easy trip with no real problems and we made good time. On the A68 I thought we were going to be held up by a continental 6 wheeler pulling a trailer but that wasn't the case. He was going well and most of the time making the 60mph speed limit. We followed him down to Corbridge where we stopped for fuel. It was an easy run, keeping a reasonable distance behind him. I didn't have to worry about the next bend. If he could get round it, I'm sure I could.
South of Corbridge there was little traffic and we made good time. There was even some sunshine to boost our spirits.
The journey home took four hours and we soon unloaded what we had in the car and settled in front of the TV with a welcome cuppa.
Despite the Friday problems, we had a great time. Thanks to all who made it possible and for the warm welcome.
