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...

Great fun today on the Segway Tour, great instructor, beautiful weather and surroundings. Great course for beginners with some nice progression to some slightly more challenging areas. Sorry I got a bit carried away at one point and headed straight out on the more challenging stage! Need to find out more about the advanced Segway experience and come back for... More
