A reminder that, this year, our National will be held in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland, based at Brighouse Bay Caravan Site, 30 miles south-west of Dumfries and less than 60 miles from the border at Carlisle. Basically, for everyone south of the Border, drive north and turn left!
A booking form is reprinted in Issue 172 of SIXappeal or can be downloaded HERE.
Now a message from the organisers, Sandra and Alastair Stewart:
The plans for the Borgue National are progressing well and the bookings have started to come in. The static caravans/log cabins will be allocated by the owner of the site. There are approximately 30 available and will be as near to the area of the show as possible.
We look forward to seeing everyone there hopefully staying on site, but anyone wishing to come for the day can purchase a ticket at Rally Control.
Our intentions are to have a run to the Mull of Galloway on the Thursday, which has a lighthouse and restaurant on site with fantastic views and the possibility of sighting Minke whales. Ideally we would like as many Triumphs as possible to enable a beautiful location for a picture opportunity. Those not bringing Triumphs will be welcome also.
Also in the area is Port Logan and Port Patrick, which were used as the main locations for the TV programme 2000 Acres of Skye. Cream of Galloway is a must to visit if you enjoy ice cream, as there are lots of flavours to try and a super children’s play area. David Coulthard’s museum is another place of interest, quite a small museum and a basic refreshments bar, which is between 3 and 4 miles away from the campsite.
There is a micro-brewery in Castle Douglas which, if there are a few interested, we could perhaps arrange a visit during the week. If you just want a day chilling out there are some beautiful walks around the campsite and of course also the swimming pool, golf course and all weather bowling green.
Close by is Castle Douglas and Gatehouse of Fleet, and Kirkudbright. We will include maps of these towns in the welcome pack.
