The Beach Cafe Montrose is open - I was there for a coffee today :
The cafe was open only for takeaway food, drinks & ice cream. It will be open on Sunday.
The restaurant next door was closed but it too will be open on Sunday, with pre-booking, social distancing etc.
Unfortunately, there is no toilet for the use of the public (although the restaurant should have facilities for customers).
My conclusion is that a Northern Meet in Montrose on Sunday, while possible, is not realistic (unless anyone disagrees ??)
So, the next possibility is Morrison's Supermarket in Hawick on the 26th - any takers for that ? I may be away at that time, my brother and I are heading for a little tour taking in Northumberland, Suffolk, Devon and Cornwall. Fancy - waiting all this time for a Northern Meet, then I may just miss the first one !
I agree that we need toilet facilities to be open and suitable for social distancing along with Cafe type facilities, so Montrose is probably not realistic as you say.
Morrison’s in Hawick May be but I’d like to check out their social distancing and facilities first, House of Bruar is a possibility but again I think it needs checking out before saying yay or nay...
Great excuse for a ride out eh!
Glad to see that you’re planning more long trips, I’m looking forward to Sammy Miller trip in October.
