Having had a quick squint at the weather forecast for Sunday, and deciding that if we have an east wind then east is the way forward… so, here is the suggested run ..
Start T and P at 8 am as usual and go over Ballo and along to Longforgan. Then down to the river and along to BroughtyFerry. From the Moniefieth road we go left to Claypotts Castle and then on wards past the Michelin Factory. Some of you may recognise this road so far, but rest assured we will be going off highligher. From the Kellas road, about mile 23 or 24 we hang a left and head for Newbigging, Tealing and Duntrune. Before we can get to Tealing we have the small matter of the A90 Dual Carriage way to cross. Once we walk across this serious artery, we head for Tealing, going past RAF Tealing (yeah who knew!). The next place we come across should be Kirkton of Auchterhouse. At KoA I want to take the Bonnyton Road which is a right turn just after we go left at the T (33 miles). This road joins the Newtyle Road some 2 miles closer to Newtyle. From here it is a straight forward run to Newtyle and on to Meigle or just home. The distance is 48 if you go to Meigle and 47 if you turn off towards Kettins from Newtyle. Tea stops could be Newbigging (if the place is still open and its a 1.5 mile detour from the prescribed route) or Meigle (if you go the extra mile)
