I was travelling from Dumfries to Penicuick en route to Aberdeen and was held up with hundreds of others for over an hour.

Surely the organisers could have had the common sense to place notices as cars came off the M74 stating there could be delays and to consider the A701?

I was over an hour late to meet family and the management of this event need to make an apology to those caught up in what was a disgraceful situation.

Not a police officer in sight to control the traffic but of course Police Scotland are in charge now so understandable !!

I am, etc.
