    We've never managed to get up to this one.........a couple of years ago the weather turned quite bad with snow and we decided not to go at the last minute. They've changed the whole car park now at the SECC, so it's not as easy for big things:roflmto: to park within the car park now......pity.
    But we're off up to Edinburgh soon, so probably won't bother going this year again.

    If anyone is going and needs somewhere to stay over for a day or two, we stayed at Bankell Farm CL, Milngavie, in November when we went to the SECC........easy walk down to Milngavie railway station and then straight on into the SECC......no need to change trains:thumb:

    Bankell Farm CL is a nice spot as well, can recommend it:thumb:

    Wife and are going on Thursday, just hope that it is better than last years event, not a lot going and various stalls/dealers not attending.
    Have heard that some of the English dealers are coming this time so hopefully be better !!
    Mind and take your own refreshments on the day, no way am I paying £3.50 for a coffee or £4.50 for a burger ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

    We have been sent 2 free tickets courtesy of sponsors BC Motorhomes in Ayr::bigsmile:


    Last year we went to look at the camping stuff but there was so little there we complained and got a full refund. Got to live up to the name of being called canny scots:Smile:

    If any you are taking the motorhome with you try parking at the silence center over the river and just walk over the bridge, this car park is cheaper and has loads of space the last time we where there in the car you could buy a 24 hour ticket and didn't see any signs for no sleeping in Vechile.

    It is council owned so I doubt if it will allow you to park overnight. However there are lots of places to park in Glasgow where you will not be bothered, you will need to 'wild camp' but for a night hardly a problem, and only 2 miles from bridge across river, plus can show you where to park for free within a2min walk of science centre.

    One of the joys of living in this great city.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    I doubt we will be going this year, being a Glaswegian myself I have parked up on a few places but always interested to find more.

    We are planning to attend but just for a day. Not sure which day yet as it will depend on the weather - Saturday or Sunday.

    We are just looking as are planning to buy sometime later this year. We'll be meeting up with DD and her partner as they live in Glasgow.

    Then on to Harrogate.

    2 free tickets

    I have 2 free tickets available for collection from G69 near M73 for the secc show if anyone wants them.

    Car parking a total rip off!
