Get out and about this summer with the versatile MINI Countryman! Our knowledgeable team at John Clark MINI have put together their 4 favourite summer get away day trips to enjoy in the MINI Countryman. If you want to hit the open roads or soak up some famous Scottish history we have the summer jaunts for you.


In amongst the East Neuk villages you will find the twin villages of Anstruther Wester and Anstruther Easter, usually simply known together as Anstruther.

This stunning little gem offers day cruises to the Ilse of May and a great opportunity to see plenty of wildlife.

The most important recommendation from our team is the award winning Fish & Chip shop – a must. From Anstuther taking the A917 is great opportunity to showcase the handling of the Countryman on the country roads arriving in the world famous St Andrews.


Taking the energetic 100km A82 you can make many stops to take in the breath-taking panoramic views from high above Loch Ness.

The Powerhouse Countryman will take you further than you though possible whist taking in someone Scotland’s finest views.


Soak up the Scottish West Coast with a joyful day trip to Oban, you may need more time for this trip as it will be too tempting not to stop every 10 minutes to admire the scenery.

Known as the Seafood Capital of Scotland keep your eyes peeled for regular food events throughout the area as several of Argyll’s finest food producers are based in Oban.


Take Britain’s most famous car to Britain’s most famous battle site of Bannockburn Stirling.

Steeped in national history Bannockburn resonates its name with Scottish freedom and independence against overwhelming odds. Teach the little rascals a thing or two on a family Countryman get away to Bannockburn.

Happy motoring and enjoy our MINI Countryman summer day trips! Explore the great outdoors!
