I looked through it only 3-4 weeks ago, and yesterday we ordered a stay at Dunkeld House for our pre-Christmas-family-trip to Scotland. The car will unfortunately be an Vauxhall Astra (or similar, as the rental companies say...), but we will do some of the Ed Abbott rally loop on our way to Dunkeld to show our 'kids' the place.
Fantastic, sounds an epic trip and really hope you enjoy your stay. I actually work for Vauxhall and the new Astra is actually lovely to drive, and made in Britain too, albeit no XJ40
We for sure look forward to it. I bet we get a Hyundai or Peugeot instead of the Astra, but they will do the job of transportation as well. I will sit in the hibernating XJ-S or take a drive in the XJ40 when we come home to compensate for the experience
We stay 2 days in Edinburgh, one day at a not yet fixed place somewhere near to/north of Stirling and then the last night at Dunkeld House. They have quite nice seasonal offers including diner, bed and the full scottish breakfast for around 60£ pp.
We had a nice trip.
Edinburgh, Callander, McQueen Gin, Finlarig Castle (ruin), Ben Lawer, Aberfeldy destillery and finally Dunkeld House. This time we made it to both the pool and the cathedral in Dunkeld!
We got the Astra in basic spec, but it did well...
