Also just to get this out there as we trialed back in 1976 we would like to see flat caps, tweed jackets, dungarees and maybe kilts!

I am very sorry to advise that we have decided to postpone the Great Arran Whiskey Trail.

We will let you know when this can be rescheduled.

Whilst I understand the ferries are still running and believe the campsite is still open, we are not able to access the Green Road Run we had planned and there is no guarantee Motorsport UK will issue a permit for the trial we wanted to hold.

Given the current Covid-19 outbreak the government are presently discouraging social gatherings.   Therefore as a Club it would be wrong of us to continue the trip.

Stephanie is still in touch with the distillery and will arrange for the Whiskey ordered either be held till we can collect it, or get it delivered to the mainland.

I realise this will be disappointing for many, but please be assured we will plan the trip back in to the SLROC calendar as soon as practical.
