Got a trip to scotland coming up at the end of may, can't wait as will get chance to drive the wife's mokka. Going to the westcoast of scotland around kirkudbright. Looking forward to giving the car a good blast as now done 1000 miles and feels like it's loosening up. Any mokka owners around there. Any good driving roads

If you are in Kirkudbright try eating at the Selkirk Arms. We ate there a couple of years ago (my mate had vouchers from the Times newspapers). It was a cracking meal that we had.
I am sure that if your wife is going to let you have an extended play you will be loving it. Don't forget that if you want a drink then you will ne to give her the keys, that's what I do.

If You go near Moffat look out for the waterfall called "The Grey Mair's Tail" well worth a visit as long as there is water flowing over it, which just now I dont think there will be any drought.
