    Well, CS Areas Day is back for 2016, and what better way to kick the year off than with a drive up to Glenshee! Being into April I'd hope the snow would've cleared and any track cars among us should be prepped and ready to go!

    Route is yet to be finalised, but would be an early morning start at Stirling Services then a drive up the A9 to Perth, then the back roads out through a few villages and up towards Glenshee. From there we can either come back down the same route or keep heading north on a round trip for a slightly longer route.

    Goes without saying that we'd expect safe driving from everyone on this. No dodgy overtaking etc.

    Think that's enough talk for now. So who's game?! Add your attendance using the RSVP if you are please!

    Also, if someone coming along is handy with a camera and fancies volunteering to take some half decent pics of this then please let me know! Would be good to get some proper photos of this instead of loads taken on phones etc.

    Some pretty good roads down this side but maybe not without going too far out your way, and you might struggle to get back to Stirling without some real boring ones! Could come over glenshee and go back the Cairn O'mount to fettercairn/Brechin area if there's an alright road back to Perth direction.

    If I'm free I'll take a blast up!

    Nice one mate, would be great to have you come along and hopefully some of the other members too that miss out on the usual central belt meets due to being further north.

    I'll need to have a study on maps and see what routes would suit after Glenshee. That's not a bad call though!

    I was up glenshee last week, I forget how good a drive it is! I do recommend coming this side of the ski centre, even if it's just to Braemar! :smile:

    Awesome mate! No one has any excuses now if you're willing to make the journey over! Lol
    I think we'll more than likely drive up and through Braemar, maybe head up aviemore way and back down the A9. Will have to just see how time is. Clocks go forward before then though so loads of light later in the day at least. Fingers crossed it's a nice day!

    @Dan.G and @16v-clio above are both Aberdeenshire way too mate. You guys could always meet up and head down to Braemar/Glenshee and we can all meet up around there? Tried to appeal to folks further north with this one too compared to the usual stuff going on around the cental belt.

    We'll more than likely continue up that way anyway if we've got the time too, rather than turning back after Glenshee!

    Going to look out a proper route for this over the next couple of days.

    Ill post up a route map when I've got something. Open to suggestions from everyone though. If you've got any ideas feel free to share!

    Should've updated this before now but not had much time. Looked into a rough route for heading up to Glenshee and came up with this:

    upload_2016-3-26_18-37-9.png

    Basically start at the services, head up the M9 and cut off at the first opportunity, keeping to the back roads heading up through Crieff, towards Perth and then up to Blairgowrie (marked as a tesco on the map lol) and finally head up the Spittal of Glenshee. Where we go from there largely depends on time. It's a fairly long round trip to continue on up North towards Braemar then either out towards Aberdeen and back down the A90, or up and over the other direction, heading for the A9 and stopping off somewhere like Aviemore or that.

    Open to suggestions on that if anyone knows any good roads we can take up or back.

    Nice one bud! Don't worry, at this rate the pace will be getting set by a slow diesel civic (aka the daily) cos my clio is still in many many bits! :tearsofjoy:

    We'll probably aim to leave Stirling services between 10:00 and 10:30 tbh. Half 9 was maybe a bit optimistic for a Saturday morning lol

    I'll be available after 11am Saturday. I'm up in Aberdeen anyways so would prefer to meet up once you're further north.

    That's an awesome route and I'm gutted I can't attend. Got a hockey final to win!
    I drove it just last week as we had a log cabin actually at the Spittal of Glenshee. The diappointing thing it wasn't in the Trophy it was in our transit connect a we had the dogs. :disappointed:

    Aye could always head down and we can all meet up for some photos or whatever at Glenshee. I know theres been a couple of guys replied in here from Aberdeen way so if there's a couple of you coming then at least that means it won't be a drive down yourself.

    Haha no worries mate. I know the feeling of having limited days to do things. Been the story of my whole rebuild lol!

    We'll no doubt have another run at some point anyway mate, either up that way again or another route. I'll make sure to give you a shout if we get another sorted!

    We're stopped in at Perth just now, will be heading up towards Glenshee soon if anyone heading down from Aberdeen way wants to meet us there. We're about an hour from Glenshee
