    Hi, and welcome to the website, I am on the West coast, Central Scotland.

    I have at present a 451 Fortwo Cdi, also had previously a 450 Fortwo, and a Roadster. So I do love smarts, and you will too, and end up getting the Smart bug and really enjoying the experience.

    Unfortunately there has not been any meets in Central belt Scotland for many years.

    Last one I attended was with my 2003 plate 450 Fortwo at Loch Lomond Shores (retail outlets), so that's going back a bit. Must have been around 2006. There was a big turn out too, lots of 450's and Roadsters. Before getting there we were in a convoy, which we call a tube of smarties

    Its a pity there has been a lack of meets, as I would have liked to see Scottish meets again to show our cars and any modifications made, but there does not seem to be the same enthusiasm as there is in the Midlands and South of England for meets.

    From the lack of response, there does not seem to be that many Scottish readers on this website. Pity.

    I have attended two myself - last year was western highlands tour from Glasgow via Invergarry, Ft William, Dornie, Skye & back again via Glencoe.
    This year was NC500, Edinburgh > Inverness > Thurso > Ullapool > Dornie > Skye > Ft William > Glasgow.

    They have also done Erskine car show and a few localised meets.

    I will apologise in advance for the replies you're likely to get!
    The current meet being planned is in Durham - not exactly a million miles away from you Scots - you can ask if you like...
