Fantastic trip around Loch Leven on the fast boat and, though fast at times, is completely suitable for all ages; there was even a baby on board! The driver and guide, Paul, is a fund of knowledge and explains the history and meaning of the surroundings as you travel without it seeming like an educational talk. He has a great... More

we did three things over the weekend. Two hours on fast boat was great friendly informative and lots of fun. Archery was good fun too. Segway was a laugh as well. They have a bit of trouble with there booking but persevere it's worth it

Michelle, it's good of you to review your magic-carpet experience. Thank you! Hoping that the rest of your holidays have other excitements, too and that you take home brilliant memories of your time in the Highlands. I think you should return to Glencoe Activities this time next year - and try your hand at Via Ferrata !!?? More

You must try Segway! It is sooooo much fun. Just spent afternoon as two families with Lawrence as our instructing going round the Segway course at Glencoe Activities. Lawrence was very accommodating in the arrangements prior to our Segway experience and was fun and patient during the time we spent with him. Lawrence and his colleague Jonny made Segways easy...

We had fun! Thank you all for visiting The Scottish Segway Centre and for being such good sports. Gliding with two families at once - eight on "magic carpets" together - is just such a happy experience for us, too! We had a very rare Segway break-down during your trip; they are normally so rugged and reliable. The unit is... More

I have no balance or sense of direction, but I LOVED IT. Very easy to get the hang of steering the Segway and the feeling of freedom (and speed) was fantastic. Can't wait to try it again.

We went on a morning Segway tour with Glencoe activities. It was great fun and the instructor was fantastic. We had never been on Segways before and absolutely loved the experience. We got to go on a range of routes and try out different terrain. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Surprisingly excellent fun and kids were flying around after 5 minutes. Very good instructor in Lawrence (apparently he's better than Paul - jokes)
