The Post Easter Weekend - Ullapool here we come again.

Saturday 18th to Monday 20th April 2020

For our 2020 Easter weekend run (not quite Easter as we have moved the dates to the following weekend like last year) we’ll be returning  one of the very best areas of Scotland in which to enjoy driving your MX-5, Ullapool, Wester Ross.

We absolutely love this wild and beautiful area of Scotland, dominated by imposing mountains and breathtaking scenery. When you include some of the very best MX-5 style roads in Europe (which should be even quieter after the Easter weekend), the area is absolutely worth visiting whatever the weather.

Read all about our previous visits to this area in 2017 and 2018


Our accommodation for two nights will be at The Royal Hotel, Garve Road, Ullapool. IV26 2SY Tel: 01854 612181

  • Dinner Bed and Breakfast in a balcony room (where avaiable) overlooking Loch Broom for only £160 per couple per night.
  • A room for single occupancy is £95 DB&B per night

  • The hotel is holding 20 rooms for us until the end of January. To avoid disappointment make sure you phone the hotel to book your room ASAP. 
    Make sure you quote The MX5 Central to ensure you receive the above rates.

    Event Organisers: Raymond & Marcia


    We will not be having any egg decoration competitions this time, but we are still having the egg rolling competion with the famous Wattie Launcher Apparatus. So please bring along a hard boiled egg - only decoration  needed on the egg is your name so we can identify the winners.

    A raffle will also be held with the proceeds this year going to our chosen charity for 2020.

    Donations of prizes are always welcome.

    Start point: Royal Hotel, Ullapool (Assemble 9:30 for 9:45 Start)
    The Easter Sunday drive takes us deep into Assynt, passing through Kylesku, Drumbeg, Clashnessie and Lochinver. The magnificent mountain views of Stac Pollaidh, Suilven and Canisp are just a small sample of the stunning views and spectacular scenery we’ll encounter during the day. This route is the same as last year but we are going in an anticlockwise direction so have a different view.

    We will have the egg rolling competition before lunch at Clashnessie on route. So remember to bring your hard-boiled egg along. We will then have lunch in Lochinver at Peets Restaurant where we stopped last year. 

    Peets Restaurant,
