The 2021 Bo’ness Revival will take place at the Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb near Harthill. It will be held on a date yet to be confirmed but we hope to keep the original date of 4th-5th September 2021

The change in venue away from Bo’ness’ historic home at the Kinneil Estate is due to the ongoing difficulties presented by Covid-19 restrictions. With the cost of holding an event at Kinneil too onerous for the BHCR, the committee decided to look at alternative venues rather than cancel again in 2021.

After friendly discussions with the Monklands Sporting Car Club, it has been agreed to run a classics-only event at Forrestburn under the Bo’ness banner. The hillclimb will give competitors the chance to enjoy their cars in a competitive environment at one of Scotland’s best hillclimb tracks.

Due to ongoing concerns about Covid-19, the event will be open only to entrants, with no spectators to ensure the safety of all attending.

We are determined as long as restrictions allow to make sure this event goes ahead.  If you have not raced at Monklands before you are in for a real treat. 

Further information will be confirmed as soon as we have it and entries will open as soon as possible.

Monklands Sporting Car Club

The track layout was designed by the original MSCC committee members (Marion and Brian Hopkins, Stephen Kay, Gordon McRobbie and Willie Miller) with assistance from Derek Ongaro of the RAC MSA, former Scottish Hill Climb Champion Kenny Allan with advice from many others on safety and marshal requirements.

The track is 1030 metres in length rising from 221m to 246m AOD with a maximum gradient of 1:4.

The track has been used as a film set on a number of occasions, including the 39 Steps (2008) in which Forrestburn supplemented other Scottish locations.
