    Default Scotland trip this weekend

    Driving up to Scotland on Friday, spending the weekend with friends in Kirkcaldy. I will keep my eyes peeled for other Vectra-C members. Anyone located between Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy? Also, are there any major roadworks or roads to avoid when travelling up?

    No major road work is the West Lothian stretch of the M8, however the Royal Highland Show is on at Ingliston(next to Edinburgh Airport), Thursday to Sunday. So if your coming M74-M8 expect heavy traffic, queuing Jct3-Jct2 M8 to Jct1 M9, Newbridge roundabout, if you are in the area before Lunch time.
    www.trafficscotland.org will keep you up to date on the north side of the border.

    Lovely, thanks for the info DasArab Looking at the maps, Edinburgh and surrounding areas have loads of Golf courses. Is there that many people interested in Golf?
    Last time I did this trip was summer 2008 and I can't remember which way I came. Think I will stick with the satnav this time.

    Did it rain for the time you were up there lofty?

    The rain cloud over Scotland at the moment is moving over North England today, so hopefully the Sun decides to make an appearance when we arrive lol
