Garelochhead MOD Training Area Sun 8th Dec

There is undoubtedly an interest in Green Laning, not surprising really when you consider the vehicles we covet and cherish. This forum is here for discussion of routes, contemporary issues and the social side of things. Anyone not playing nice will have their tyres let down.

Garelochhead MOD Training Area Sun 8th Dec

Postby genem » Sun Dec 01, 2013 1:23 am

I'm sorting this trip out using the license that SLROC have negotiated, this is an "organised" trip on private land rather than "Green laning" in the English sense. That said, anyone who can produce a membership card to an ARC club ( to cover the Liability Insurance stuff) is welcome to rock up. Food and Fuel for the day, £10 to cover the costs. 1 ARC affiliated club member per vehicle.

The area we will be using is "The Bosnian Road", the training area built to train drivers for deployment to the Balkans. Interesting slopes, great scenery and should be non-damaging, nut behind the wheel permitting !

Start point is 10 am on Sunday 8th Dec at:

As a taster, the scenery is:

I'll be there in the Lightweight, MOT on Monday permitting. It would be good to see some Ex MOD vehicles back in their native terrain !

Cheers,

23 Landrovers, mostly civvy but including a Wolf 90 all the way from Aberdeen and an ex MOD 110 as well as my Lightweight. Weather typical for Garelochhead in December ( or all year round really) drizzle... All in all a great day out in the hills, using Landrovers as they are supposed to be used !
