Scotland boasts many splendid, peaceful beaches ideal for long strolls and exploring rock pools but did you know that they are great places for a few thrills, too? Land yachting, or land sailing or sand yachting, as it is sometimes referred to, is exhilarating activity ideal for a range of ages and is a great way to enjoy our golden sands and coastal areas.

So what is land yachting? Although they have been around in some form for centuries, land yachts today are three-wheeled vehicles which are powered by wind through the use of a sail, meaning that flat coastal locations are ideal for this type of activity. The speeds you will experience in the kart largely depend on the wind speed - it’s the perfect activity for a breezy day and land yachts have been known to go as fast as 40 mph.

During a land yachting session you might get one or two hours where you will be given land yacht training, practice runs and perhaps the chance to challenge yourself on timed runs or race against other participants. It doesn’t take too long to master a land yacht, so before you know it you’ll be flying along, with the wind in your face and adrenalin pumping.
