Just back after a great hovercraft experience at Strathaven airfield. We had a great time operating the hovercraft on 3 different timed courses. Very enjoyable day enhanced by the instructor. Well worth a visit.

Great airfield with good facilities. As ever Colin McKinnon was welcoming and really helpful. We were able to buy MOGAS off Colin which really helped us on our tour of Scotland and the Western Isles.
