    Ok so some/most people might not pick up on there are not many rallies/meets north of the border. With your help I would love to see this part of MHF change...so...Where would you like to see a Scotland rally and when?
    PS I am willing to try and change and arrange this but need feedback.

    Haven't thought that far ahead - a tour of Scotland was in our plans for next year and we could merge the rally with that

    It's such a long way.. I love Scotland and wish it was closer.. anyway, there are so many beautiful places, it would be hard to pick one.. probably southern Scotland around Stirling or west Lothian would be good for people to get to and a mix of things to do and see nearby..

    Looking at locations I suppose the borders or somewhere near Hawick would suit more people than a bit of beautiful remoteness

    Great idea Sandra, I would certainly be interested. First thoughts are the Borders or Dumfries/ Galloway area, mainly because of the travel for us English. Personally September is an ideal month, not least because the dreaded midge is less of a problem.
    You obviously know the area well so no doubt you will think of somewhere - not too far off the motorway network (I know motorways are few and far between up north!) or good quality roads so as to encourage Funsters to make the trip up to your beutiful country.

    Late August early September 2015 would be great seeing as I will be up there on my own anyway :)

    There is a large rally field at Cressfield Park (where we live) underused, and I'm sure I can get it for us.
    We are close to the M74, so easy access, and the Southwest gem of Dumfries and Galloway.

    Being a exiled Scot who in former years has toured Scotland pretty extensively I would love a Scotland meet. I kind of agree that for those whose travel distance is great that perhaps the most scenic area of the West Highlands is possibly too far . How about close to the Highland gateways either Perthshire say Kenmore by Loch Tay in the East or in the West say Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond.

    East is best less midges. And I agree Perthshire as lots to see and do and good road network.

    Goodcsuggestions, keep them coming and hopefully we can have many more than just one north of the border.

    Dumfries & Galloway would interest me because of the Dark Skies location. Would agree with midge free time, but now couldn't do until next year, too busy at present!
