Took my girls (12yrs and 14yrs) on the quad trek yesterday and Andy (the guide) was absolutely superb. The quads and equipment were very good and the trek was just right. Andy took lots of video and photos on my phone for me and was super patient and very encouraging with my daughters. They both loved it and said they'd... More

If you are an adventurous type then Rothiemurchus is for you. From clay pigeon shooting to climbing trees you will find an activity to keep you occupied. All set of course in spectacular countryside. My wife and I opted for the Segway taster session at a cost of £21 each. We were fortunate as the day we booked, there were... More

We always visit when in the area, whether you walk, ride, bike or just love nature, you have to visit. Take time for a coffee after your experience.

Excellent terrain and wonderful experience! Do ask your guide to go slow for you to have time to enjoy the surroundings than just driving the quad.

My 10 year old son really wanted to fish while in Scotland so we thought a stocked trout pond would be perfect. Also, this park was open till 9pm at night so we didn't have to rush to get there. We stopped at the fishery and were greeted by 2 very nice employees who happily rented us the gear and... More

We booked the "intermediate" hack and had the most brilliant time. The ponies are lovely - well-schooled and gentle, and are in tip top condition. We had Feona looking after us who was great - she has a friendly, no-nonsense, and calm demeanour, she put us at our ease and wanted to make sure we had a good time, and... More
