    Never been to the Spittle of Glen Shee before, but the roads leading up to the lecht I have done a few times and rather like. It's six half a dozen with me, I'm easy! I know there is a layby just down from the lecht that might be good for photos tho?

    Any run in the new car will put a smile on my face I think!

    The lecht is a great place to head to when the sun is out. Head through Alford and Strathdon one of my favourite local roads on the bike but never done it in the car
    its about 70 miles from aberdeen


    The Spittle of glenshee is brilliant and is my favourite local road on the bike again never done it in the car. Basically head out through banchory then Aboyne then ballater and onto braemar then onto the spittle road basically its the road from braemar to pitlochry and it is a winding road with big sweeping corners that cuts in between the hills fantastic road and some brilliant spots for pics.
    its about 100 miles from aberdeen

    100 miles?! Return you mean? Either that or I used to driver further on my bike than I thought! I really like this idea as I know a lot of these roads and they are sh*t hot - especially when the sun is out like you say. Which it will be...obviously.

    Sounds cool gents. Royal Deeside, cracking part of the country and top drive on a nice day.

    I'm out in Banchory so meet yoos en route!

    I've got a decent SLR but no tripod, anyone else got one? A wide angle and/or fish eye lens would be top too!

    I don't know, about 11-12?

    And I've just thought that I don't know where 'the park' is in Banchory since I was thinking of the park in Aboyne for some reason...

    Bringing a camera sounds like a good idea, think I might have to dig mine out and dust it off. Might have to bring the blonde as well, just for the photos!

    lol, I really don't drive into the middle of Banchory that often!

    I'm sure that I'll be able to find it... maybe. If you just drive thru the town on High St will you be able to find/see it from the road you think? If so then I'll be fine, otherwise I might have to go have a scout about at some point beforehand! Good excuse for a drive tho. :D

    Tickety boo. As said, drive into Banchory passing Morrisons on the left. Keep going through a set of traffc lights, then properties on your right before you see the park way down on your left. As you hit the centre of town you'll get to a set of traffic lights. Turn left down the hill at the lights then left again into the car park. To get out it's basically a U, but as you enter, drive up towards the back where the Codona's fair is. Let's meet there. I'll send a link to google maps when not on phone, but it's not that missable.

    Saturday's can be fairly busy but whoever there first, secure! I'm 10 mins away, so will get there earlier for the spot.

    I'll be SLR'd as well. Si, you got a selection of lenses? Fish eye FTW!

    Even if we hang about for 10 / 20 mins for all to show, we'll noise up the Saxo neds!

    Maybe a group PM with some mobile numbers closer to the time? Just for those not too sure. Should be quality boys.

    Garlogie, back of Echt to Raemoir road Si? Great couple straights and some twisty stuff, very nice.

    Watch just after Acergy, next roundabout heading for Garlogie, uber craters, always cars in the layby changing wheels.

    Sat 4th April, 11 AM, Banchory park, done!

    All sounds great to me! Roll on the 4th April... Well, getting the car first would be nice, so roll on the 22nd March (ish).

    Saxo boys huh? That mean we have to show them what real cars look like? Yeah, PM with mobile numbers and I'll ask the g/f (who lives in Banchory) to maybe come along like I said (that way I don't look like too much more of a tw@t than usual when I can't find the park! lol).

    Not too many straights tho or I won't be able to keep up with all you maniacs in your S3's! Twisties sound the mutt's and I'll have to try to break it in a bit before the day.

    Nah i have my Nikon 18-200 and a sigma 10-20 might look for a fish eye but they are kind of pointless i think

    A wide angle caper would be good. Never used a fish eye, but fancied a few shots of the rims. I've a Canon 450D myself. Will see if I can get a couple of extra lenses for a try.

    Aha! I was in Banchory yesterday and was at a cafe across the road from the car park with the Chinese... I'm going to assume this is the park chosen since the girlfriend says thats where the Saxos hang out?
