A Wheelie Good Time - Karting and Segways in Aviemore

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, August, 2017

Are you an adrenaline junkie, or do you prefer to take things slow and steady? No matter your preference, we can steer you in the right direction. Screech round the go kart tracks and race to the finish line, or take a tour amongst nature on a leisurely segway ride. 

Back on Track

Fast flowing corners, undulating tracks and a downhill design to ensure maximum speed – Aviemore Kart Raceway has everything you need to get you, and your adrenaline, racing! Don’t let the rain stop you. The 550 metre circuit is designed to withstand the temperamental, and often wet, Scottish weather conditions.

No need to book or pay in advance, simply head down to the track and get racing. Just a 10-minute drive from Hilton Coylumbridge, it's perfect for an impromptu excursion. What’s more, waiting times are usually no more than 20 minutes, even during busy times.

On a Roll!

Looking for a change of scenery from the fast-pace of the racing circuit? Take things easy with segways at Rothiemurchus and tour the Highland tracks, spotting the local flora and fauna as you go. These quiet, zero-emissions, self-balancing scooters provide a spectacular way to see the local scenery.
