After lunch the rain was sweeping in from the west ...so we decided to not return the fun way ..but to flee south to the A9 and 'short cut' it back to Glasgow ...on the way we came across a scooter club outing and tagged along for a few mins.....





'scuse the rain drops on the lense...



Passing through Muthill...

It was a tough battle ... we couldn't hope to out drag them on the straights but managed to pass by out-braking them into turns or drafting behind them and getting a tow to slingshot by on the longer straights.

Our destination was the 'Snack Bar' at the top of Glen Ogle ...100 miles might seem a long way for a burger ..but when it's 100 miles of twisty great roads it makes perfect sense.

From the ride up...



Re-grouping at 'turn offs' en route....



Jeni



Gordon..


Stopped again to re-group at the Rob Roy near Aberfoyle ..this Ural outfit was there...




Rural scene up near Callander ..can you spot the tortoiseshell butterfly - summer must be nearly here!.

Sunday run continued...



Strathyre



Blue sky to the north still...


Climbing up Glen Ogle .....lots of fine bends and scenery..






At the Snack Bar on the A84 - Dave and Jeni arriving....



Fine dining 'al fresco' .....


It's a favourite stop for the police to have a brew at too....This one gave us a cheery wave as he left ....
