Hi all,

Had my baby 5 weeks and this is my first chance to stretch her legs, if you'll pardon the analogy.

Stopped at sister's in Shrewsbury yesterday and near Loch Lomond this evening (Arrochar Hotel). 502 impeccably behaved miles so far. Average fuel consumption 35mpg. It'll get worse from here of course πŸ™„

It's a bit on the wet side for photos but you can play "Spot the BRG F-Type" with this one

Heading to Loch Awe for a week in 3 weeks. Hope the weather is kind to you and the midges aren't to bothersome

Love that! We go to our spot near Balmoral every August for 2 weeks. I'd love to take the F-type up on the A93 (Old Military Road) from Pitlochry to Ballater or until Aberdeen. It's a stunning road with views to match.

Thanks WShudds, I'm always looking for new places up here. I'll give that one a go. Ah ! I worked in Aberdeen for 5 years and just twigged Pitlochry and Ballater are nearby. I'm heading up and then back down the west coast this time.

Cheers Delpel. It's not my first time up here and it does make a huge difference if you catch the sun. Fingers crossed for both of us.

Good stuff! We visited the area for the first time in January 2017 and fell in love so much that we bought a timeshare in Ballater and we've been going every year since. There's a lot to see around the area, lovely villages, markets, cafes and breathtaking landscape. We changed our route and go up the A90 from Dundee as the wife gets motion sickness on the A93.

This is why I love the Highlands and you should all bring your F-Types here.

Stunning roads + fast car + no traffic = happy me πŸ₯³

Thanks. It's so easy. Go north from Glasgow and just stay on the West Coast all the way to the top. Turn right to get to John O' Groats and then go back exactly the same way. You can't go wrong :D
