We thought “back to school”, but “No”, instead a very enjoyable, if short, day out.
Normal Meet at Clarkston Shops. 8 in the end with Allan, a friend of Norrie’s, (I didn’t know he had one), joining us.
Surprise- no due South Peebles direction, instead by interesting roads, including Eaglesham to the Fenwick Moors (great road).
There, we entered the complex containing the biggest wind farm in Europe, I’m reliably informed, but Spanish owned. 84 miles of road within the Farm- VERY impressive. The tearoom was pleasant, if the scones were diabolical.
Within the Visitor Centre a great deal of information provided in an interesting variety of forms. Some quite hi-tech.
Once we departed, continuing on this wonder road and many others, till we reached Dumfries House, sadly sans culture.
The T room was very fine with prices reflecting this, but a tour of the house will happen later, when we win the Lotto.
And then onward & upwards- again great roads to East Kilbride & the Holy Grail- Douglas Park’s Mottoradt Showroom.
Norrie couldn’t resist. So instead of tarting up his house, he bought a second hand 1200 Tourer complete with panniers etc, for only £14,000 all in. Hope you can handle it. No oil leak, of course. OH NO- he’s just changed his mind- boo hiss!
Well done Johnny, great day out.
