The event is open to the following: a) Cars manufactured before 1980. b) Sporting cars of any age. d) Other cars permitted at the discretion of the organisers. Cars constructed before 1980 will be given preference for entry. Club members and organisers Ranald Bruce and Louise Wall use their knowledge of their once home area to create this great route.Starting once more just south of Edinburgh, this time at Eddleston (near our last year finish), this run will head south west deep into the Borders before heading east along the Scottish Borders trails; over the hills of the southern uplands; through some of the many river valleys on our way to a pre-arranged lunch stop. Fully refreshed we will continue heading east crossing Rivers Teviot, Tweed and many of the tributary 'waters' feeding these great rivers. Ranald has arranged our route to take in a special private viewing of some world-famous rally and sports cars, all with heaps of provenance. Our final section heads north toward the mighty River Forth where our finish location will offer a celebration meal, awards, and a time to chat with fellow 'Reivers'.
Last year we took you back to Roman times with the tour along Hadrian's wall. This year we continue our journey back in time taking you across the area frequented by the marauding Border Reivers in the 13th century. We will drive some little-known roads that explore the Scottish Borders from west to east, broadly following the Tweed watershed, passing along and across some old “drove roads”.
Location: just south of Edinburgh
Based in Dundee, the club runs rallies and tours for historic and sporting cars of all types. The club is also a member of NESCRO, the North of England and Scotland Classic Rally Organisation You don't need to have a Classic or historic car to join the club. There is plenty of drivers looking for navigators, and marshals are always in demand.
