Come hover with us!

Fly on a cushion of air, inches above the ground. Skim the surface and whizz over obstacles. Hovercrafting is true off-roading, and it’s a blast!

With our hovercraft experiences you fly your own personal hovercraft. With our expert hovercraft training, you experience the excitement fast.

Hovercrafting is a unique experience. It’s not a car, boat or a plane, there are no brakes, gears, reverse or wheels – and because a hovercraft is amphibious, you get to fly the hovercraft over land and water.

You will need to use all your skills and instincts to control the hovercraft; stopping at speed requires a 180 degree turn and full power!

Hovercraft Scotland – flying a hovercraft is a unique thrill and a fantasic and a memorable gift idea! Purchase your Gift Voucher here!

“Visited here today as a family group. Had bought vouchers as a group birthday present for my brothers and husband as they all have summer birthdays. We had a great experience. The Hovercraft Scotland team are warm, welcoming, friendly and professional. The guys had a brilliant time using the hovercraft on the various courses and their rounds were also timed to add a fun element of competition. There were also 3 adults and 4 children spectating – we felt involved in the fun and enjoyed watching the guys going round and sometimes hovering onto the rough and having to be pulled out!! At the end Josh also offered the kids a chance to go round the course with him driving – this was very much appreciated. All in all a brilliant experience and a fun family day out. If you go you won’t be disappointed”
