In case you are not familiar with segways, these personal transporters are battery powered, self-balancing vehicles. The participant stands upright and controls the device by shifting their weight, allowing it to go forwards and backwards, and uses the handle to control direction.
In some countries segways have been used in cities as a way to take in the sights, but in Scotland you’ll find that they are largely used for recreational, off road experiences across countryside and through forest trails.
In Dumfries & Galloway, you can discover hillsides that sit high above the magnificent Solway Coast on a segway adventure with Laggan Outdoors. At the Tralee Segway Centre, steer your vehicle through the designated sandy track, and enjoy some splendid views of north Argyll and Tralee Bay.
Further up the coast you can hop on a segway with Glencoe Activities and whizz across the Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course at Ballachulish at the side of Loch Linnhe – the flat green means you can glide at a speed!
On the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, you can take a segway sightseeing tours in the grounds of Lews Castle in Stornoway and discover the rich history of this Victorian era build. Or why not check out the largest fleet of segways in Crieff Hydro and set off on an exploration of 900 acres of Perthshire countryside?
