Preparations underway for our Winter Is Coming Tour.

Preparations for our Winter Is Coming Tour are coming along nicely, with a skeleton route already planned, ferries booked or researching, camping spots favourited to Google Maps. My favourite part has always been putting the roadbooks together – it’s the finishing touch, the icing on the cake, the sign that everything is all finished when…

Gaydon Land Rover Show, at the British Museum.

Always great fun, The Land Rover Show at Gaydon is one of our favourite shows. Here’s Mark talking about it on the official video. We have a few ticket for camping on the club stand available, head to our facebook page for more info.

We are one!

Robin Hood Overlanders were formed one year ago today – in that time we’ve been on 32 events with 54 nights away. Here’s to our second, even more productive, year! Thank you, as always, to our members.

New chassis for Alice.

So, after a little bitty of an off roading accident, we discovered we had sheared both body mounts. This was a tiny bit of a problem due to the fact we were half way round our Haggis Hunt trip! Thankfully, we found a miracle in the shape of Tongue garage, who patched us up so…

The War Tour – March 2nd – 4th.

From Friday 2nd March to Sunday 4th March, this trip is designed as an early shakedown for members to trial their equipment and as an inexpensive alternative to shows. This year we are having a Civil War theme – roundhead uniforms optional! For details of our longer trips this year, please see our Winter Is…

Preparations for new trips this year.

After a quiet online winter (not so quiet in members’ workshops – more details to follow), we are busily preparing for another busy season of travels. Our major event this year will be the WINTER IS COMING tour – a 10 country, 3 week, 4,000 mile extravaganza to the Arctic Circle and back again!  …

Haggis Hunt Day 5 – Glenelg to Big Sand (via Applecross)

After a brisk start to the day, we decided to travel some local byways and see some of the beautiful sights.  The Applecross pass (Bealach na ba) was very impressive – as we reached the summit, the fog hit us and visibility was just a few feet. I’m sure the view from the top is…

Haggis Hunt Day 4 – Muir of Ord to Glenelg (via Skye)

Day 4, and the plan was to stay at the Dunvegan Camp Site on Skye. I’m sure that Sky is wonderfully beautiful, when you can see it!  As we turned up to the camp-site, the tents that were there were blowing around quite spectacularly and the rain was literally sideways, so we decided to head…

Haggis Hunt Day 3

A beautiful day travelling through the Cairngorm mountain ranges. After a brief stop at the Glen Muick spittal we visited the Glen Ord distillery for a tour and a taste of their Singleton whisky.

Day 2 Haggis Hunt

Some beautiful scenery around The Queen’s backyard, we travelled through the Cairgorm National Park. The weather has been on and off all day – as we travelled through Glenbrittle, the misty rain was so thick, you could barely see the road edge. Some sunny spells later and we are chilling by the fire after dinner…
