This year the Scottish weekend will comprise a BarBQ at Braeside House in Selkirk on the evening of Friday 25 June, the Scottish Tour on Saturday 26 June, followed by the Scottish Weekend Dinner that evening, and a Scatter Rally on the Sunday morning. The event will be based on the Buccleuch Arms Hotel in St Boswell's TD6 0EW (telephone 01835 822243) and voted Scottish Inn of the Year in 2015
The event will comprise a BarBQ at Braeside House on Friday evening, the Scottish Tour on Saturday, followed by the Scottish Weekend Dinner that evening, and a scatter rally on the Sunday morning.
As independence is in the air at the moment, the Tour will involve an inspection of Hadrian’s Wall to check the fortifications.
We hope to have a special guest over the weekend, who will be coming up from down south for the event.
The three course dinner costs £40.00 per person, excluding drinks, with choices selected and booked in advance by the individuals concerned, and payable on the night to the hotel.
The Tour this year will venture west towards Carlisle and then pick up Hadrian’s Wall running eastwards as far as Humshaugh before turning north through Northumberland national Park around Kielder Water and then back to the Buccleuch Arms at Melrose.
There are a number of beauty spots as lunch stops for those bringing their own packed lunches, or there are a number of pubs and cafes along the route where lunch can be bought en route.
 
The route this year will cover around 110 miles with the start and finish at the hotel, following the B 6399 south to pick up the B 6318 eastwards, before turning north onto the B 6320 up to Bellingham before driving around Kielder Water and then onto the A68 and to the hotel.
Entrants will receive an easy-to-follow Road Book containing all the instructions for the Tour. For those of you who would like to try a little VSCC rally-style navigation, a section of the Road Book will have some rally instructions if you wish to take this option. The route will not be timed in order to comply with MSUK regulations.
The event is open to all cars made before 1st January 1940 – with or without a Buff Form - and the route will include some of the best "vintage" driving in the country with open roads and spectacular views through the Scottish Borders and the Northumberland National Park.
On Sunday morning, there will be a two-hour “Scatter Rally” organised for us by Martin Jelley, finishing at noon for announcement of the results, lunch and departure home.
As in previous years, members with eligible cars from the VCC, BHCR, BVAC and Scottish Riley Register will be invited to compete with their VSCC eligible cars in the Scatter Rally on Sunday morning.
The entry fee for both parts of the Scottish Weekend is £65.00-, which will include tea or coffee and biscuits at the start and finish of the Tour, provided by the hotel, payable in advance with the Entry Fee.
For those wishing to enter only one event over the weekend, the Entry Fee for the Tour is £35.00 and for the Scatter Rally is £40.00, but it is hoped that most Members will want to enter both events.
The Secretary of the Meeting is Alisdaire Lockhart (email alisdaire.lockhart@vscc.co.uk) and the Clerk of the Course is Martin Jelley (email m.jelley145@btinternet.com).
The Annual Dinner is £40.00 per person for a three-course dinner plus tea or coffee, excluding the cost of drinks at the bar or at dinner, bookable in advance at the hotel and payable to the hotel on the night.
