We wanted to experience Segway riding and found an absolute gem. Sadly, I didn't get the name of our instructor but he was very sympathetic, understanding and most helpful. The whole experience was great fun and I really couldn't rate it as highly as it deserves. Many thanks for a great day.

Stayed just down the road from this glencoe activity centre so we thought we would pop in and do some fun things while we were on our trip. My partner is a huge golf fan - personally I'm rubbish and find the whole walking about after him all day while he plays a bit boring. However we rented out one... More

Segway Tour with family was a fantastic experience for parents and kids (ages 11 and 13). We has so much fun that we did it twice and you really get the hang of riding the Segway the second time around. One of the most fun activities that you can do with your family, but not for kids that are not... More

International reviews are always very welcome. I'm pleased to hear your Segway Tour was so successful. Sorry to hear you were not so keen on the cafe. Refurbishment is underway over the next couple of weeks so do call in again if you are back to Glencoe, to review the changes. Thank you. More

Finally decided to give this a go and wasn't disappointed. I'd underestimated the initial challenge in riding the Segway and understood within a few minutes why they hadn't been placed in the 'low adrenalin' category. But what fun! Following our fab guide like ducklings through private country tracks and then zipping around the flatter areas or leaning forwards to power... More

The instructors were very good. Their explanations were clear and as all four of us were novices, they made sure we knew the basic controls before we moved off. The next 45 minutes were great fun as we rode round the edges of a golf course, in wonderful Highland scenery. I thoroughly recommend this activity both for the instructors and... More

Our first ever experience of Segway riding. We were all a bit apprehensive at first but this very quickly disappeared under the expert guidance of our mentor, Neil. It's surprisingly easy, even for a couple of OAPs, and we we quickly off enjoying ourselves, albeit all the time under Neil's watchful eye. All in, a fantastic experience in beautiful highland...
