I tried a segway about three years ago in York, but this was an altogether more satisfying day. We had a brief safety and handling session then went out onto a golf course and surrounding areas. The smooth tracks were safe yet exciting enough. The Segway machines were Mk2s which had off road capability. I had a great time and... More

My family and I did the 2hr fast boat trip with two other families. By far the best boat trip that we've ever been on by a country mile. Paul the boat skipper was great, informative, patient and fun. If you do one activity at Glencoe I would do this. The scenery is second to none and its a fun... More

Took 2 hour RIB ride around Loch Leven/Linnhe from Ballachulish. Expensive for family 2 adults/2 children but well worth it. Exhilarating ride and very knowledgable and amusing guide used experience to take us to see seals, eagles, Porpoises etc.

Took the 1 hour trip on the 10th August with my two daughters (7 and 13) and son (11). Excellent hour spent as it actually stretched to over 90 minutes with very knowledgeable guide called Paul who was extremely friendly, informative and child friendly. All five children aboard had a stint steering the boat which was thrilling and worth every... More

Took the 1 hour trip on the 1st August with my two daughters and a bemused dog. Excellent hour spent with very knowledgable host (can't remember his name)......worth every penny.

Two hours of inspirational beauty that will not be forgotten. We saw porpoises, seals, goats, gulls, osprey, and oyster catchers. The spectacular and mesmerizing mountain vistas viewed from Loch Leven leave you thinking you've unlocked the meaning of life. This sort of indescribable beauty is the reason the Highlands are filled with travelers during summer. The skipper (Paul) was very... More

First things first: the "Fast Boat" is extremely fun. My wife, son, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am, however, unable to rate this activity more than three stars because of the level of disorganization with its management. We booked a boat for June 20. When my email confirmation came, it was for June 21, requiring another call from the... More
