27th April 2014: Drive it Day


Recommended Posts

Drive It Day is usually held on the nearest Sunday to the 23rd April.

 

This date was chosen in 2005 to commemorate the 64 cars which set off on the 23rd April 1900 on a 1000 mile Trial, an incredible undertaking in those days and one which we believe deserves an annual celebration.

 

 

Destination is the NTS property, Leith Hall which has recently reopened.

 

 

Meet at the Beach Esplanade at 9am for a 9:30 start

 

 

Park along the Esplanade as last year but face South for a smooth start.

 

 

We will travel through Aberdeen via King St, Union St, Great Western Road and the A93 out to the

 

Deeside Railway Preservation Centre for a coffee stop.

 

 

We will then continue on the A93 and turn right at Dess, heading North to join the A980 just before the Crossroads Inn.

 

 

We will continue on the A 980 until Bridge of Alford where we take the Sluie Road.

 

 

This will take us to Kennethmont where we join the B9002.

 

 

The entrance to Leith Hall is about 500 yards on the right.

 

 

Depending on the ground conditions we will park on the lawn in front of the house.

 

 

The Tea Room is very small so it may be prudent to take a picnic with you.

 

 

If you intend taking a tour of the house please let Alan know so that the NTS can arrange guides.

 

 

Detail of run is on the GVRS Website
