This one-day event is open to all Pre-’56 MG cars.
It is being run by the Caledonian Centre in conjunction with the Octagon Club
Our visit to the RAF Heritage Museum in Montrose is only 5 minutes away from our Coffee venue and the Museum is open for us from 11am. We will visit various buildings within the site. There are Aircraft and Engines to view, models and artefacts, all fascinatingly displayed for your enjoyment and education. All of this mixed in with heroic and tragic human stories retold in various ways throughout the museum.
And don’t forget to take a peek in the Reception shop where an aero themed stock awaits your pocket money.
Montrose started in service life as a Royal Flying Corps training establishment in 1913 and did not close from active RAF service until 1952 – so there is a long history of the airfield and its people.
At 1pm we will make our way nine miles Northwards, where we are invited to enjoy our picnics in the grounds of Benholm Castle courtesy of the Strachan Family. “Abandoned for forty years the castle and house were in a forlorn state when Roddy and Fiona Strachan purchased them in 1990”. There will be plenty of Tea and Coffee available and a shelter marquee to provide some covered space if the weather is inclement. Some tables and chairs will be provided but do bring your favourite folding chair to supplement those on site.
This will be our opportunity to socialise, and browse the ‘Bring and Buy’ stall for those elusive Pre-’56 MG bits that are on your wish list.
All entrants will be provided with directions to the Sports Centre, although the Brown Tourist signs in Montrose, do clearly mark the way. A further ‘route book’ for both the Museum and Benholm will be included in your goodie bag.
The Entry Fee is £15.00 and includes the arrival Coffee/Tea and a Roll.
Dughall Leask will contact you regarding the Entry shortly after you have booked.
