Park ‘n’ Ride Scheme – Sunday 11:30am – 5:30pm

We are proud to announce that this year we have added a Park ‘n’ Ride service for spectators on the Sunday. We have kindly been given permission to use the Bo’ness academy’s car park. The service will run from 11.30am to 5.30pm on the Sunday with a bus shuttling between the Park ‘n’ Ride and the event.  Barring traffic the Bus will be dropping off and picking up every half an hour, and as with all our carbon reducing features the service will be free.

Bo’ness academy is located at: Gauze Rd, Bo’ness EH51 9AS



Shuttle service running from Linlithgow railway station

We are very pleased to announce that we have a minibus shuttle service running from Linlithgow railway station. This means you can attend the event entirely by public transport from anywhere in the UK by getting a train to Linlithgow and then the shuttle bus to and from the venue.
There will be two buses running at approximate 30 minute intervals between the station and Kinneil Estate and then back again. The first bus will leave at 09.30 and the last will leave at 16.30 hrs on both Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge to use the bus – it is a free service.
Anyone can use the buses, and if you can find parking in Linlithgow then please feel free to use the shuttle bus service to Kinneil Estate and back.

So if you missed getting your entry in,  please contact Alex Hazlewood for more information about the reserve list and how it work: alex@bonesshillclimb.org.uk

Drive Scotland – The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Alan Biggar successfully completed his marathon mile trip round the coast of Scotland and finished with a gentle run up the Hill at Bo’ness and a photo session in front of Kinneil House. Alan gave us this report on his 1800 mile drive in his 1957 Morgan .

We had a great send off from the Stirling and District Classic Car Club annual show at Bridge of Allan and smooth run to Macduff. Day 2 started with the front nearside side light trying to fall off followed by a puncture on leaving Elgin. Front offside tyre destroyed, quick change and only 10 minutes late arriving at Dingwall Academy. Impossible to get a replacement spare tyre the correct size, so had to opt for a smaller tyre and tube. Fortunately no further punctures, if there had been matching tyres would have to have been fitted on the rear as Morgan has an LSD.
Ferries to Orkney and Shetland went smoothly, Alan had to arrange an emergency dental appointment in Lerwick! Then back to the mainland and long drive from Scrabster to Portree on Skye. While on Skye it became clear that the Kenlowe fan was not working correctly, so Simon Scott wired it so it was permanently on for the rest of the Drive, which was exactly another week.
A good journey down the Outer Hebrides in the rain, safe return to Oban and car running well on Islay and Jura, again wet on Jura. Looped round Kintyre Peninsula but no run up the Rest and Be Thankful Hillclimb courtesy of torrential rain! All well through Glasgow but car breaks down 20 miles short of Stranraer, fortunately sun shining and managed to coast to a halt in a lay-by on the other side of road. Hugh Brown and Brett, a domestic appliance electrical engineer sitting in his van, use an old bit of cable to connect the coil to the battery by the rear axle and car makes it to Hotel an hour late, Hugh turning the engine off from the passenger seat with a switch in the makeshift cable! Next morning electrical engineers in Stranraer find a spade connector has slipped off the rear of the battery isolation switch, all well again.
Afternoon of the second last day and engine will not start after refuelling at Hawick, push start required. Final morning in Eyemouth another push start, again at Duns, at Kinglass Fields in Bo’ness, at the Bo’ness Revival Hillclimb and finally at the Inchyra Hotel. Despite all this the Drive ends on schedule, total driven miles being 1,812 taking the distance covered by the 4 Drives (2008, 2011, 2013 and 2017) to 10,412 open top Morgan miles for Teenage Cancer Trust. Oh yes, and one secret bit of information, the average age of the Drive Scotland team in 2017 was 65.2!
A huge thank you to all the sponsors/donors/supporters/helpers, the fund remains open for donations.

Update: The Bo’ness Revival Classic


With just 3-months to go to the Revival and 8-weeks to the final closing date for entry to the Bo’ness Classic it is good time for an update as to the current situation.

Club and Individual entries are now coming in at a steady rate so if you are considering entering the Classic please do not hold off for too long, as when the available spaces are filled the entry list shall be closed, even if that is prior to the noted closing date. We are on target to meet our maximum number of entrants, which is 400-cars in the Showfield on Sunday 3rd of September.

The Bo’ness Classic is a full weekend event, starting off on Saturday morning when the Bo’ness to Balmaha Road Run and Bo’ness Saltire Trophy depart from Bo’ness town centre from around 10.00. The Road Run is a gentle convoy type drive whereas the Saltire Trophy shall be an MSA sanctioned event, but without the requirement for a competition licence. The Trophy shall consist of a Road Book with Code Boards and other references to identify, Autotest type competitons and Regularity sections, it all promises to be an interesting concept with a wide range of competing cars spanning almost a century of motoring. Plans are well advanced for road closures in the town and when the expected 60 or so cars have departed there will be a Street Fayre event in the town centre. Due to Saturday being an active awayday there will not be as many cars on display in the Showfield at the Hillclimb track as there will be on Sunday, so please bear this in mind if you are specifically visiting the Classic on Saturday.

Sunday will be a busy day with the focus on the Arena which will see action by way of the ‘Carkhana’ competition, plus interviews and presentations all under the control of our knowledgeable MC’s. An interesting feature will be the final element of the Bo’ness Saltire Trophy, a Regularity drive up the Hillclimb track during the Hillclimb lunchbreak, which shall see some unlikely cars tackle the Bo’ness hill. There will be a wide array of cars on display on the various club stands, ranging from a Triumph TR3S which has competed at Le Mans on the TR Register stand, to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Jaguar XJ220 on the Jaguar Drivers Club Stand. Both the TR Register and Jaguar Drivers Club are involved with the Bo’ness Revival Classic in that they are sponsoring various activities and are hosting their Scottish national events under the umbrella of the Revival Classic. All of the trophies for the Bo’ness Revival Classic are generously being supplied by the TR Register and JDC and in addition both clubs are sponsoring their respective classes in the Revival Hillclimb..

The Bo’ness Revival is a truly unique event with the Bo’ness Hillclimb and the Bo’ness Classic running side by side and providing a range of interest for spectators and entrants alike.

If you would like to enter the Bo’ness Revival Classic, participate in the Bo’ness to Balmaha Road Run or enter the Bo’ness Saltire Trophy please contact Cliff McKinnon at cliff@bonesshillclimb.org.uk for any information and an entry form.
