Seize the Day in Gravity
Gravity Assisted Downhill Cycle Trip
It is all downhill starting from 1737ft above sea level, at the Lawers Dam. From here you cycle downhill on a single track tarmac road to Bridge of Balgie, through Glen Lyon (believed to be the most beautiful glen in Scotland) to Fortingall, where you can see the oldest tree in Europe. This 17 mile long cycle trip drops unassisted down some 1300 feet. Full range of bike solutions are available to ensure that this truly great cycling experience is suitable for all.
Gravity Trip includes two nights Bed and Breakfast and one nights dinner in the Award Winning Fine Dining Restaurant overlooking Loch Earn from £299 (hotel) per person sharing.
Seize the Day in the Air
Micro Light Flying Experience
Have you ever flown in an open cockpit? if not then it is time to try this highly unique experience. See the mountains and the coastline from as high as 4000 feet and take to the controls if you like. The craft fly from 60 to 100mph and are able to travel as far as the Scenic West Coast. Or height junkies can even be taken up a mile for a view of the Sea both sides of Scotland. Local destinations can be included, and you have the option of flying or sitting back and enjoying the view. Instructors are highly experienced and fully qualified through the CAA so you'll be in very safe hands.
The Scottish Gliding Centre's Mini Course is an ideal introduction to gliding, an exhilarating experience letting you control the glider yourself. The day is for beginners with no previous knowledge, and covers as much flying time as you can fit into the day. To the newcomer it's difficult to see how a glider can stay up at all, so now is time to not only understand but experience this lift. As the air is seldom still, you can arrange it so that the glider spends its time in air which is rising at least as fast as the glider is descending. (Although it looks and is very sophisticated, a glider has a lot in common with a paper dart!). No great theoretical knowledge is needed to fly, nor is there any need to be particularly athletic or fit.
Two day break include two nights Bed and Breakfast in a Hotel Room and one nights dinner in the Award Winning Fine Dining Restaurant overlooking Loch Earn from £302 (micro light) and £332(gliding) per person sharing
Seize the Day Off Road
Off Road Driving and Quad Biking
If it is off road action you're looking for then a pulse quickening hour on the ups and downs of the off road driving course is for you. No experience is necessary, just a driving license, and each person who wants to can take a turn at driving. The off road course is based in a 40 acre site which was originally a working sand and gravel quarry. The session is for one hour which includes a qualified instructor. Skills Tests on a number of different obstacles which include wading, descents, ascents, traversing and a range of different elements.
Everyone can enjoy the excitement of quad biking at this Crieff Activity Centre. Experienced instructors take you on an off road tour of the extensive 900 acre estate, navigate woodland tracks and test your wits in our all terrain off road course.
