Did you know that High Kirkland Holiday Cottages can accommodate 17 people in its three properties? With room for 4 in The Byre, 5 in Heron View and 8 in Robin’s Nest, that’s some party. But where can you all go together and have a great day out?
The good news is that you’ll find Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre just 20 minutes west from Kirkcudbright, sitting on a hill above the A75. With a stunning outlook over the Solway Coast, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s worth a visit for the views alone.
There’s much more on offer, though, for adventurers and adrenalin junkies alike. One of the highlights is the double line zip wire which, at 820 metres, is one of Europe’s longest. The two lines mean that you can zip at up to 45 mph right next to your bestie and wave to the rest of your party 30 metres below. Look out for special night time events where you can do it all in the dark…
Check the Weather Live On-site
If Laggan’s very own weather station points to rain on the way, you can head indoors to the purpose-built archery centre, which boasts space for six archers and a cosy log burner. Things have come a long way since archery in the cow shed was the only activity on offer.
And if you’d prefer to save your energy, a Segway tour of the surrounding hills might be just the thing. Once you get the hang of it your job is to enjoy some of the most breathtaking views in the region (apart from those at High Kirkland, of course!).
As a national winner of a Tourism ‘Oscar’, Laggan Outdoor is recognised as an innovative, forward-thinking company and there are always new activities and events in the pipeline, such as the recently added human slingshot which sees fearless folk flying at up to 60mph in just over a second on a huge bungee cord. Keep an eye on the website for regular updates.
There’s always a warm welcome, regardless of the size of your party, and Laggan Outdoor is used to hosting stag and hen parties, team building groups and birthday parties. And as well as the onsite café and BBQ hut facilities, they’ve recently opened their wedding venue, GG’s Yard.
