Perfect for stags with a sense of adventure, an instructor will guide you through gullies and chutes as you wade, swim and slide through Aviemore’s dynamic and natural obstacle course.
HIT THE ROAD
Drive a Range Rover like it’s supposed to be driven, through an obstacle course designed to challenge every aspect of 4×4 driving.

So hit the open road and settle once and for all which stag is the best driver!

LAIRD FOR A DAY
