Just a thought,
 but must ask,
was it a warm day everyplace else,
but unseasonably cold at Lamancha?

It can be very warm there sometimes in the summer
& even pleasant when elsewhere is cold.

No need to be stuck for long.

As Bill says, and we never seem to get past the same mud hole on our Friday jaunts lol
Well worth the years membership fee.

lamancha: its too near penicuik so it shares the same microclimate. plenty space although (least when i was last there 8 months ago) it was large but not that well structured. sure of a warm welcome though and if you go along for the midnight manouvre weekends its a great weekends fun. good value around ?20 a day.

glentarkie:  smaller site but well structured, well laid out. its for members, although courtesy of ross we have enjoyed several trips there on a pay and play basis. if work would only calm down a bit id be very tempted to join. very good site.

shandon: been there once courtesy of james and alex. was in the freelander yet apart from some branches scratching the paint a wee bit it was no damage even to a freebie. very hilly site but with bonus you get a cracking view over the sea

Forgot to mention Drumclog. Only been once though and thought it was massive. Got recovered so just a normal day at the office for me. Hopefully someone else can give a more constructive write up lol

Drumclog's a crackin playground, plenty of mud and places to get stuck, even in a D3  ;D ;D Huge area and huge variety, all for ?20 a day. The pipe is challenging even in the dry, but not for anything you value your paintwork in, search in you tube for the pipe at drumclog, plenty of videos there.

Colder than other places on way there and back. Microclimate can be + or - .  We got - I guess.  Happy to go back!

My vote would be for Drumclog, you can also camp there by arrangment.
The only difference between men and boys, is of course the price of their toys !
