Glamis Castle’s extensive grounds make it an ideal location for this event. The present incumbent, Lord Strathmore, is a keen collector and has a small fleet of classic vehicles including some ex-military types. Held on the weekend of July 8-9, the Scottish Transport Extravaganza attracts thousands of visitors. With big names from motoring history such as MG, Jaguar, Porsche, Rover and Rolls-Royce, the show is a magnet for the classic car clubs and military vehicle enthusiasts. Trade stands selling everything from motoring memorabilia to tools and ex-military gear mean it’s great place to come if you need items to dress your vehicle.
