Saor Alba Convoy
As with all Forward as One event, the Saor Alba Convoy is running a convoy to the assembly point. Details on this can be found at their group by clicking here.
As with every year, the Forward as One parade/marches includes those who wish to do the event in a vehicle.
Last year vehicles were at the front of the Parade, however, due to the gap that kept opening and closing and the fact that having vehicles parking while those on foot are still walking can be a bit of a nightmare. Therefore the committee has decided this year to have the cars at the rear of the parade in order to keep the same pace.
This arrangement allows the cars to keep pace with those walking in the parade as well as acting as a rear safety guard for the entire event. It also means easier parking.
Those taking part in the Parade/March with a vehicle will be allowed to enter and park in the Park at Pittencrieff.
Warning: The assembly car-park at Viewfield Terrace is only ours up until the Parade leaves at which point it returns to being a pay and display carpark. This means that if you leave your vehicle in this carpark after we leave for the park, you will have to have a valid ticket and you must follow the rules of the carpark. Please also note that you must affix your ticket, in plain sight on the front windscreen. We had several incidents where people did not buy parking tickets last year and also affixed the ticket to a different window.
The private company who runs the carpark will enforce a ticket against you if you affix the ticket to any window other than the front one.
Assembly Point (Please take note of important entry informationon next map)
Important: Due to traffic restrictions and barriers being put in place to stop a vehicle/pedestrian collision, entry to the assembly point for vehicles is from the North of Viewfield Terrace ONLY.
If navigating by satnav set the postcode to KY12 7JG (Eastport, Dunfermline) and this will bring you to the main roundabout where you will see the entry barrier. Please just relay to the barrier attendants that you are taking part in the rally and you will be let into the carpark.
