A friend and I booked a hovercrafting experience here. Absolutely Brilliant !! Something completely different and exercised the brain too. Driving/piloting/controlling a hovercraft is like nothing I'd done before Definately will be back

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.
