Sunday Run to Scone

On a mild sunny day, surprisingly only four club members met at the leisure centre for the run to Scone.
The 4 of us Charlie, Gus, Norman, and Dave set off out the Kirrie Road taking advantage of the road closure at Paddanaram to avoid the Drumgley road which has turned into a rat run since the main road closure. After admiring the new road surface at Paddy, we turned off at the school and went round by Ballindarg and on to the Bogside Road. We were battling into a strong breeze and took turns up front along the Bogside to Meigle then along the main road to Coupar Angus. From there we went along the back way past Woodside cemetery and down to Kinclaven to take the main A93 towards Perth. Just before Guildtown we turned on to the minor roads around by Stormontfield then down by the racecourse before taking the short sharp climb up into Scone. A lot of hard work against the wind so we stopped for a cuppie at the cafe at Scone Aerodrome. After the welcome break we now had the wind advantage as turned off at Balbeggie and made our way round into Kinrossie.

Keeping to the back roads we then headed home by Kettins, Newtyle, and Glamis then into Forfar.

The Wednesday night run will be to Glamis.
The next Sunday run on18th March will be to Newburgh
