Skean Dhu RallyIt was held in April by the South West Scotland MCC and was a traditional rally with Beer/Food tent and an Entertainent Tent with local bands.
The field was liable to getting very wet and there was quite a slope to get out of the field which was always entertaining.

Being held in Dumfries in Scotland meant an early start for us as we all took the Friday off work to ride up there.

This rally always held on the first week of March.

The video on the Skean Dhu rally brought back memories of the year I went in 1983. It was the same conditions getting in and out of the field. But a good time, if I can recall that long ago.

Set off on Friday night after work and went to the Camchain rally in Cheshire. Signed in, had a burger, then headed north to the Skean Dhu, getting there around midnight.

Could you recognize a 400/4 covered in mud?
Went to the Skean Dhu rally on a 250 Superdream, must've been 1984, from Ayrshire with lads from Strathwest Bike Club. We camped same side as beer tent ... still got some photos somewhere.

Ransack your house for your photos, Allan, scan them and send them to us.
Just watched the film on Youtube of the Skean Dhu from 1982. I was a member of the club that organised it. If you've seen the film I was the one wearing the red white and blue leather jacket who's running round the field on an XL250.

Just watched the film. I see myself in it and my good mate Willie Kane. Brought back a lot of good times.

We went 82/83, two us rode up from Durham both on GS550s and, with it being March, it was a fresh ride.
