The 6 day Highland Run 2013 By Clive Randall

What a year, what a fantastic summer. In fact so good that the spring supplying our place with water in the lowlands of Scotland dried up in September for the first time in 10 years. But it was a price worth paying

Highland 3 Day Classic Tour 2013 by Maggi Byford

This event is called '3 Day' and the Clark of the course and chief organiser is Mike Raven a Healey man from Preston. But as lots of participants from the lower half of England need a day or 2 to get to the start, which is usually north of Glasgow or Edinburgh this year near Perth, Mike does a Day 0 starting just north of the border from Lockerbie for those who wish to lengthen their tour. Although participating cars are ceremoniously flagged away from the hotel in the mornings, this is a non-competitive touring event, with no timing. There are optional test devised by John Wadsworth ether an auto test in a suitable car park or a navigation section using OS landranger maps, where you find code boards or via boards on the correct route for those who like a challenge and the self-satisfaction of finding the correct route. But by far the best aspect of the event is the open roads little or no traffic and fantastic scenery in the remoter highlands and shore regions, not to mention the excellent lunch halts where the organisers take pains to ensure there are special local choices on the buffet. Not forgetting a good, convivial bunch of participants.
