Water jet-packs? A human slingshot? Er, these activities want to kill you, basically.
River bugging in Aberfeldy
River bugging essentially involves plunging over a series of waterfalls in an inflatable armchair, and trying as best you can to make it to the end of the river without either capsizing or drowning. If this extremely unwise (but scenic) sport sounds like fun to you, check out Splash White Water Rafting Scotland.
Flying a microlight in East Lothian
East of Scotland Microlights offers gift experience vouchers from £70, which involves being flown around far above the Firth of Forth in a tiny microlight aircraft. You’ll soar over beautiful beaches, or head towards Edinburgh on longer flights. It’s pretty much the coolest possible way to see the capital, if you don’t mind sitting in a flying hairdryer.
Aqualining at Calvine Canyon
Aqualining is basically tightrope walking, but the rope isn’t particularly tight, and you’re also expected to cross a canyon over a river. Sounds pretty barmy to us, but if you want to give it a try, stag and hen-do company Pop The Fizz offer sessions at Calvine Canyon in Dunkeld. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Flyboarding on Loch Auchenreoch
If you want to experience what it’s like to fly and drown simultaneously, why not try your hand at flyboarding (basically, a watery jet-pack) on this scenic Scottish loch? You can plunge through the water like a giant, terrified dolphin for only £95. If you survive, the nearby Inn on the Loch is a good place to celebrate.
