    Sirs,

    Just came back from a fab week in Scotland. I collected lots of information about Whiskey distilleries and the roads between them! Thinking that May/June next year would be a good time for the f-tour we have talked about..don't want it to be too close to the Swiss trip and much before = not enough time, much after = summer's over. Thoughts?

    Here's a few pics to whet the appetite in the meantime:

    Guys

    If You would like to have a trip to Scotland I would be more than happy to help organise routes etc... I live near Stirling which is between Edinburgh & Glasgow. There are some fantastic roads that take you up to the North of Scotland via some spectacular Loch's etc.. It's well worth the effort!!!!

    Dave, sounds cool and closer to the time we should definately chat this through and plan something. I am a huge Scotland fan, spending one great week a year there.

    Guys

    The Malt Classic Car run takes place every year in Scotland, I will try and find out which roads they have access too. The West coast run is Fab, drive up the A82 first thing in the morning ( zero traffic) and a cracking road with long straights, swooping bends & glorious scenery... And not a speed camera in sight!!!!

    Hedge did you have any route's planned?

    Gentlemen,I am sure that I talk for all of our British "chatter"s" and Scottish ones in particular in that we look forward to your visit next year Rod is correct in that the West coast is the better driving/scenic area however the east side also has it"s merits.Incidentally are you all aware that there is a ferry which leaves on a daily basis from Zeebrugge to Rosyth?Rosyth is in Fife just North of Edinburgh and very close to Rod in Stirling and myself by St Andrews it is also a relatively short drive to the Highlands from there.Any further info required please do not hesitate to ask.
    Best regards
    Dave McGuire
    p.s.Rosyth is also only 35ks from the only Ferrari main dealer in Scotland

    Hi Dave,

    oh I love to learn. Man I`m drinking this stuff since many years but never have had a closer look to the letters...no time;)

    Its time to travell over to you and your beautiful Scotland! I`m hungry to see & learn more about it.

    Serious question...please don`t laugh; sometimes I`m realy serious:
    About the ferries!!!!!!!
    Have you (or anbody else) ever had any problems to go with the Ferrari on a FERRY???? I can`t drive in any subterranean garage! My testa is stock original and no lower kit but its impossible. Front spoiler is always scratching or I just run aground.....
    you know what I`m talking about?
    I don`t want to hang around on a ferry with my Ferrari for the rest of my life:D

    Hope this is not a stupid question?

    Testagang,

    I have had no problems with my 328 on the Dover-Calais ferry. I have dopne the trip twice and there was no serious incline to worry about. However, I am scared about the underground parking in my new building. Oh well - I will have to check it out in May when we move!

    The cross-channel ferry should not be a problem for you....I hope!

    Cheers, MARK

    Wolfgang,I have used the Rosyth-Zeebrugge ferry only once and had a porsche boxster,I had no problems with this and there is no serious inclines on the ferry it is a brand new ship and has none of the problems of ferries years ago.
    Hope this addresses your concerns on this issue.
    Best regards

    Mc Dave Mc,

    thanks buddy!
    Maybe and as usual something got lost in my poor translation;)
    No problem with the ferry, no problem if its sinking (all risk insurance:D)...
    I`m only thinking about the drive in - out of the ferry. The big difference, level, high..mhmm between the ferry and the land. 10cm difference could be a big problem. But if its both one one level - no problem.
    Don`t know if my question is now understandable enough;) Oh my god I wish I could speak a better, fluent and understandable English:(
