“Fun in tree tops!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Fantastic fun down the 12 zip wires. A great way to travel down the valley. Fun for parents and kids. Recommend booking as I think this activity will soon become very popular once more people know about it!

“Awesome Zip Wire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Hidden Gem of an activity, would recommend per booking to guarantee place.
Gentle walk to top of wire, easy stroll, friendly staff chatting with all participants enroute to top.
Safety very high priority and well managed in a family friendly way.

Start with some short runs building to an amazing 330mtr zip which takes about 35 seconds through some beautiful woodlands with stunning views.

Highly recommend for adventurous families and thrill seekers.

“Fun in the Highlands”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

My partner and I recently took a trip to Grantown on Spey. Our main objective was to visit my partners favourite whisky distillery. However, we soon realised that we need more to fill up our days. Thankfully, the Alvie Estate was near by. We went quad biking (which was awesome, I didn't even realise that it was raining). The instructor was patient, informative and fun. We had the best time. My boyfriend was like a little school boy on that bike.
On our last morning we went zip wiring. It was so exciting and again our guide was so friendly and informative. The estate is so beautiful, I defy anyone not to fall in love with the Scottish countryside

“Clay pigeon shooting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

- 2 of us (mid-20s couple)
- Fantastic experience
- Great tuition from David (we got better, and hit quite a few!)
- Adjusted to the individual (capabilities, body strength, etc.)
- Very good value for money (our arms got tired before we ran out of ammunition!)

- Description: Driven across the estate to the clay shooting equipment. Set-up the clay launcher. Safety instructions. Feedback after each shot. Terrific tuition: started us on single shots in front; then to double shots; then to sideways panning).

Would definitely do other activities on the estate.
