Brian's Top tip

"Summer tends to be a busy time in Glencoe. I'd suggest booking your activities in advance to make sure you get to tick off everything on your Glencoe wishlist."

Segway tours ⚙️

Segway is an amazing, self balancing platform that gives an extraordinary “magic-carpet” experience. Being on a Segway is easy to pick up, yet it’s so different to anything you have ever done before!  Glide with us through the woods to connect with nature like you never have before. Because people of all ages find it great fun, this is a really good family activity… even for grandparents!

Easy to master, and fun to ride, you’ll never want to walk again!

Archery 🏹

Step aside Katniss, move over Hawkeye! Join us for an archery session and you’ll be hitting the target in no time. With a little friendly competition, you’ll soon find the motivation to aim for the bullseye!

From beginner taster sessions to more in depth sessions for accomplished archers, our fully qualified instructors are here to make sure you have lots of fun while picking up some new skills along the way.

Electric bike (e-bike) hire 🚲

The Sustrans Caledonia Way passes right through the estate, offering miles and miles of stunning, peaceful cycle tracks to explore right from our doorstep.  Head off down towards Oban, passing historic Duror, beautiful Appin and easily diverting to Lismore Island.  Alternatively, head up behind the estate to explore the trails in the Glenachulish Woodland and to get a great view over the point where Loch Linnhe meets Loch Leven. 

Our e-bikes help ease the strain when riding uphill, allowing you to relax and enjoy your surroundings. Our team will ensure you are properly kitted out and will point you in the right direction, or better still take them with you with our Guided E-Bike Hire.

Laser-Clay Shooting 🥏

Fire authentic, 12 gauge shotguns – converted to shoot harmless infrared beams – with no nasty kick-back or big bang! Clays are fired from a launcher and up to four players can shoot at the same time. When a shooter scores a hit, the beam is reflected back to the gun and registers a “HIT” on a big scoreboard. Authentic sound effects enhance the experience. The computerized scoreboard tallies up hits and allows several different forms of competition to take place, catering for all levels of expertise.

Face off against your friends, family or colleagues as you compete to rise to the top of the scoreboard. From beginners to seasoned shooters, everyone will gain something from this exciting experience. 

Whisky Tasting 🥃

From the whisky aficionados to those just discovering Scotland’s amber nectar, our whisky tasting experience is sure to get you up close and personal with the ‘water of life’.   

Packaged beautifully and including a selection of our favourite drams from different regions of Scotland, our whisky tasting kit is designed to be savoured in your own time, in your lodge. 

If you’d prefer a more personal experience, our in-person guided Whisky Masterclass is definitely the way to go.  Our resident expert will guide you through the different whiskies as you explore their history and discover complex characteristics of some of Scotland’s finest single malts.

Golf Course ⛳

Our award-winning golf course has been named the “Best 9-Hole Golf Course In Scotland” by Bunkered Magazine and “Top 50 9-Hole Golf Courses In The World” by Golf.com so is a must-visit for any golfers visiting Glencoe.

Players of all abilities are very welcome and club hire is available from our reception.

The eBikes are great fun and super easy to use. You get them the whole day so could make a proper day trip out of it. They recommend some routes for you or you can find your own way. We just went a short trip along the loch to the Holly Tree hotel for lunch, but would have gone further afield given time. The staff as ever were lovely and helpful.

We had never ridden segways before. Vince our guide made us into segway riders in a very short time. We absolutely loved driving around over bridges and down and up hills. I would thoroughly recommend this to everyone. Thanks again Vince.

We had an amazing time on the segway experience, I was very anxious before the event being aged 60 and never having done this before but Katie was amazing, very reassuring and we were soon zooming around the beautiful countryside with confidence having great fun. The only negative is now my husband wants to own one!!!
