Came up for a stag weekend. Great location, not too far out of town. Instructors were really good, made to feel welcome and would definitely come again. Quad biking was awesome.

The mini Highland games are a very funny activity and the staff is friendly. These 2 hours were full of laughs and challenges. Being located out of the city is not a problem, since there is the possibility to get a mini bus.
