SCOTTISHMINI YEAR OPENER

Minis brave con­di­tions for a run around the Trossachs

Mini Magazine - - News -

Eight Minis and 17 hardy folk braved the weather for Scottishmini’s year-open­ing run around cen­tral Scot­land on Sun­day April 3.

Meet­ing up at Dob­bies Gar­den Cen­tre in Stir­ling, in typ­i­cal April rain, they set off on a fun route around the Trossachs, via Cal­lan­der, the Duke’s Pass, Aber­foyle, Kin­lochard and on to a breakfast stop at Stronalacher Pier at the west-end of Loch Katrine. De­scend­ing en-mass on the small tea-room at the head of the pier caused an un­ex­pected rush of or­ders, but ex­cel­lent ba­con and egg rolls and cakes as well as hot drinks were greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the colder mem­bers of the group.

Af­ter a blether (Scot­tish for a “chat”), and with the weather im­prov­ing, ev­ery­one set off home­ward again, al­though some took a longer route home along the Fife Coastal tourist route back to Ed­in­burgh from Stir­ling. Hope­fully with bet­ter weather more Scot­tish Minis can be tempted out for fu­ture events. Most of the folk in at­ten­dance were new to the Scot­tish Mini scene, and it’s al­ways good to see new faces.

It was a bit of a wet one!
