The Rally of Scotland is the penultimate round of the high-profile Intercontinental Rally Challenge. A number of the stages have takenplace in Highland Perthshire and on Sunday 9th October there was a lengthy stage through the forest above Loch Tummel and the Queen’s View. As Loch Tummel is only a few miles from our Pitlochry B&B we decided to spectate at our first rally!
As it turns out, spectating at a rally consists of standing around in the cold for quite a while waiting for the odd rally car to blast past in a matter of seconds. I have to admit, however, that the bursts of action are probably worth the wait. As you can see from the images below I did not master the art of high speed motorsport photography!
I have also uploaded a video to the Torrdarach House, Piltochry B&B youtube channel. Equally amateurish. For more detailed information on the Rally of Scotland click through to their website at http://www.msaevents.co.uk/rallyofscotland/home.php
