Philip was always disappointed that despite a mysterious outfit and a great theme tune, his adventures were never quite as interesting as those had by his his friend, Professor Excitement. Have fun worthy of the name with today’s Groupon: £29 for a choice of one activity from canyoning, river tubing, mountain biking, sphereing (for two), climbing, or 4x4 driving with Action Adventure Activities.
Understanding that adventure walks a tightrope between safety and thrills, this crew combine 30 years’ hospitality experience with extensive safety certification, allowing punters at Easterhill Farm to get hearts pumping without heads thumping. Less than an hour’s drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh, the farm hosts experiences such as kayaking, crossbow shooting, and a blindfold rope trail. As well as single activity sessions, the team run multi-activity events suited to families, stags and hens, though resident cows, sheep, and ducks aren’t allowed to join in.
Action heroes can opt for an expertly-supervised introduction to one of six activities, such as canyoning, which plunges groups into waterfall lakes and rapids, or river tubing, which involves floating down waterways and maybe bopping along in the rapids. Activity participants can take the wheel in an off-road 4x4 session, or two tumblers can get on a roll with hillside sphereing. Easy riders can plump for an extended bike trail through Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, while the energetic can climb walls with the climbing, abseiling and high ropes experience.
