A fantastic trip, many thanks to Anne, Bob and Pete for all the effort that went in to the organisation of it all. Great company and shame you didn't tell me the rule about "what happens in Scotland stays in Scotland" as I've just sold the story to our local paper ;)
Hope to be back next year with a few modifications to the car :)

I always view the Highland Drive as a tune up for the driver. You learn so much about what your car is capable of and how you can trust it. Then you tune yourself to it and improve.

This year has been awesome, the extra day really made it for me, the roads and the absolute best of company. It sounds soppy but feck it, I love you all to bits and it was brilliant having the West Midlanders with us again.

Steak just doesn't seem worthy unless it has been prepared by Tony.

Put Mr down for next year please

Epic weekend,

Epic Weather,

Epic Pool final (damn you Ian),

Epic Hosts,

Epic event organisation,

Most of all,

Epic People, each and everyone of you was a pleasure to spend time with on the road, in the bar and restaurants we all visited. Thanks everybody, yet again you made this weekend the must do activity of the year.

I shall leave this here, from my 10th Anniversary to yours:
