Brian's Top tip

"We're usually very busy, so please do book in advance to avoid missing out! If you have any questions before booking don't hesitate to call as we're here to help."

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 every done before!  A wonderful, rich and rewarding experience.  Because people of all ages find it great fun, this is a really good family activity (with the grandparents, too!).

Archery 🏹

Archery is fun, challenging and rewarding.  Our instructors enjoy meeting new archers, and getting them onto target quickly and easily.  With archery, its great to get a little competition going . . . . and the laughter is heard across our estate. 

For accomplished archers we will encourage development and enhance your skills. 

Electric bike (e-bike) hire 🚲

The Sustrans Caledonia Way passes right though the estate, so there are miles and miles of stunning, quiet and quality 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 tracks in the Glenachulish Woodland and to get a great view over the point where Loch Linnhe meets Loch Leven.  Our team will be more than happy to help with recommendations, or better still take them with you with our Guided E-Bike Hire.

Laser-Clay Shooting

Players fire authentic, 12 gauge shotguns, converted to shoot harmless infrared beams. There is 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.

Whisky Tasting 🥃

Whether you love whisky already or are just starting your journey exploring Scotland’s famous “water of life, you will love our Whisky tasting kit.  

Packaged neatly and including a selection of our favourite whiskies from different regions of Scotland, the kit is designed to be enjoyed in your own time at home.

If you want a more personal experience then 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.

Golf Course ⛳

Our award-winning golf course was hailed “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 Clubhouse.

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!!!
