I have to admit to being a bit nervous about doing this, and I did take a while to get the hang of it but Alastair was very safety conscious which gave me confidence, I did get the hang of it and was glad I didn't have to become Alastair's back seat driver! Great fun, great views, great guide.

This trip was Amazing....Alistair our guide was awesome, funny, slightly crude!! But very caring of our 2 kids (4 & 2) and made sure they were having a great trip on the Argo machine. I have done other 4wd adventures and this is THE BEST. I would never have the confidence to ride a bike and take it to the... More

I'm so glad I came across Glenstrae farm ...it was sheer luck as we couldn't go dolphin swimming....so I wanted something else to do ....I can honestly say it is one of the best things I have ever done ....everyone involved in the operation are professional and safety conscious but make it a fun and exhilarating experience. The views are... More

We had such a brilliant afternoon on the quad bikes with Alastair. The farm is absolutely,stunning with views to die for and seeing it all from the seat of a quad bike was really great fun. Definitely recommend it.
