Just had a brilliant level 5 snowboarding lesson with the amazing Stuart. Really kind, really caring and always smiling no matter how many times I fell over, waved my hands around and didn't put my weight on my right leg for turning. And thank you to the kind girl who helped me off the lift when I fell at the... More

Excellent, affordable snowboarding lessons on real snow. Brilliant instructors (especially Ben and Sam). Quickly and sensibly builds up your confidence on real snow and gets you a feel for a real slope. Endless fun and a "proper" Bavarian bar (with real central European craft ale) for afterwards and watching those on the slopes. Esay bus routes from Glasgow, first rate... More

Was on holiday from Australia in June and our kids thought we would see snow and didn't understand it was summer (probably because of the weather). This place was suggested by family and turned out to be a good excursion. We did sledging due to the age of the kids 5 and 7 and had a 30 min session, we... More

Visited soar this afternoon to go sledging. 3 adults and a 4 year old, and all thoroughly enjoyed it! Well done to Gladis, our instructor who was amazing. 5 star worthy!

Went for ten pin bowling session with my wife and grandson midweek afternoon . We were told that the earliest game we could have was two hours later. When I checked the lanes I saw that 7 of the 22 lanes were not operational. If they had been working then there would most probably been ver little waiting time. The... More

My 8 yr old boy Matthew had 2 excellent snowboarding lessons with instructor Rob T. Sessions ended up being 1 to 1 and Matthew made great progress. Having complete all the skills sessions Rob then advised us of the after school snowboarding club which would be a good way for Matthew to continue with his skills. Thanks again Rob !

Had my second skiing lesson at Snowfactor with Marcus last week. Really enjoyed the lesson, Marcus was encouraging and really good at helping you understand what you needed to do. I feel like I have came on a lot already. I have another lesson booked in today, looking forward to it.

Mark Donnelly was the best instructor for our son. We booked a three hour freestyle ski lesson and Mark made this lesson fun, exciting and fast. Our son had so much fun freestyle skiing he was learning heaps without knowing it - Thank you Mark, I would recommend Mark and Soar Braehead especially in the summer when it is quiet.

Daughter aged 14yrs taking lessons. Had fallen the week before and given herself a fright. Had Justin as the instructor and came home very happy with her confidence back. The course of lessons is very good and pupils are not allowed on to the big slope unless they have passed. Thanks to Justin for patience and excellent tuition.
