Experience at Dunkeld

An absolutely fantastic experience. What a brilliant place and fantastic people. From the booking through continuous updates and reception at Butterstone Loch. The course is amazing, I still can’t believe that I drove the RRS over any of it. Before the instructions from Doug I won’t have even considered looking at it. Great place and great car.
Doug has the patience of a saint and nerves of steel. Very professional and knowledgable such that he managed to encourage me to get through obstacles I would not have contemplated. I even managed to keep my eyes open, he insisted.
Thanks to all at Butterstone. A day to remember and highly recommended.

I went there a couple of years ago & it was brilliant. Terrific instructor. You can not imagine what the car is capable of, far more than most people's ability or nerve. Just believe in the instructor. As the cars were all new I asked what happened to them. They are returned to Land Rover after about 3000 miles so I would imagine your low mileage only used on a Sunday by an old lady might have a tale to tell Evil or Very Mad Censored Whistle

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

So that qualifies both of you to join up to the Scottish Green Road Club and come and join in with the Scottish version of green laning. Club website has joining instructions and application form at www.scotgrc.co.uk £20 for lifetime membership and £10 per run attended to cover the costs of arranging the runs. The next run out is Feb10th and 11th in the Galloway Forest - it is over two days due restrictions on numbers attending each day by the land owner. These are non-damaging ( unles yountry very very hard) droves intended as a non-scary day out on mostly forestry tracks/ waterboard roads/ Electriciry Company roads and wind farm access roads. Most are gravel roads but your car will get dirty, no special tyres needed, they are great fun and membership gets you automatic membership of the Scottish Green Training Club too where we do more serious things like winch training, teaching you what the controls of TR do, how to recover cars and how to drive where there are no roads or tracks. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

PC, Butterbridge is on the west coast at the back of the Rest and Be Thankful just off the A83 and is a seriously good place to go greenlaning if you have the land owners permission - it is Freelander Friendly so any other LR can hack it too. I took a 1 day old Evoque over the tracks there in Sept 2011..... The LRE is at Butterstone near Dunkeld over on the east side of Scotland. I assume your are something to do with the wind farm that is to be developed in Glen Kinglass? 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Scotland 2010 Range Rover Sport 3.0 TDV6 SE Santorini Black

Been a few times up to the old Dunkeld LRE. (at The Hilton) They are great days out!
I’m actually going up the week after next for a freebie in the Velar.
By the looks of it, it is a separate course to the norm, focusing on the design and functions of the car, aimed at selling me one.
I’m hoping I can tell them just to skip the sales pitch and just take me to the mud!

Scotland 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 Autobiography Firenze Red

I was at Dunkeld LRE in November, they tailor it to what you want and I at no time felt like there was any sales pitch. I'd upgraded the free ticket to full day and took a friend so the driving was split, so I was trying to learn as much as I could about what all the terrain response controls and other hardware was about while my friend was more concentrating on the track and didn't really care about the RRS hardware. The instructor just tailored it to us. We were on the custom built track in the morning then one of the the forest tracks in the afternoon and had a great day.

I'm just hoping my wife doesn't want to use her free ticket so I have an excuse to go back this year. 13MY Range Rover Sport Autobiography SDV6 - mine
14MY Range Rover Evoque Dynamic SD4 Black Pack - wife's
99MY Defender 90 TD5, Soft Top Conversion - my toy, and bairns favourite

Thanks Tim, I may have to take you up on that kind offer, especially since I’m ideally placed for the Galloway forests.
