The 08:30 time relates to departure from Tesco Banchory in Aberdeenshire, gates at Murthly Castle will be open from 10:30.
Murthly Castle on the banks of the River Tay near Dunkeld, is nearly the geographic centre of Scotland and an idyllic location for the Club to host this year’s meet for members from all across Scotland and further afield at a special gathering on Sunday 29th May.
The Castle sits amongst tree-lined avenues, extensive landscaped castle grounds and a walled garden, surrounded by endless woodlands, rivers and hills and a wonderful backdrop for this MX-5 meeting, a place to relax with friends and day in natural surroundings.
Just a short distance from the A9 the venue is easily accessed no matter which direction you come, with direct travel times of under 2 hours from Inverness, an hour and half from Aberdeen, an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh and 45 minutes from Dundee we hope to see many MX-5s on the day and with some of the best roads and landscapes in the country leading to the Castle, we’re sure any trip there will be far more enjoyable than a blast along the dual carriageway!
Castle Tours & Tree Tours:
Tours of the Castle and chapel can be arranged in advance (10 to 40 people, £15 per head).
Explore the Local Area:
Nearby Dunkeld and Birnam overlook the River Tay and has a spectacular cathedral, a wide variety of independent shops, the Beatrix Potter exhibition, Birnam Arts and plenty of friendly pubs and eateries.
