Welcome to The Scottish Segway® Centre – the home of Segway adventure in Scotland!
We operate in three special locations in Scotland.
Two sites are in Central Scotland at the incredible Falkirk Wheel and the other, Canada Wood, both steeped in history and heritage. Our other site on the majestic West Coast at Glencoe. Our sites are truly breathtaking and provide wonderful terrain for the best Segway experiences in the UK!
Segway is a wonderful family activity and something that all generations can enjoy together. There are few other things to do that give delight to children, parents and grandparents alike – and all at the same time, too!
Segways are self-balancing and gentle: the rider needs no skill or experience. In fact, the less you think about it, the quicker you get the hang of the incredible magic carpet experience! We teach ‘000s of people a year to Segway, and love to get “gliders” up and moving in minutes. Our guides are friendly, relaxed and skilled. They also know the best routes and the secret paths, so you will get the most out of your Segway Experience.
Our ‘top-of-the-range” Segways are designed for off-road terrain, so are well equipped for the rough and challenging opportunities available at our sites in Scotland: if you want adventure, let us know!
Age restriction – Too young? Being able to ride a Segway is actually a weight thing – the Segway needs to pick up slight changes in body weight via its footpad, in order to get instructions. Children under 20kg will find this a challenge. That’s about 7 years old. The official Segway Inc guidance is children should be OVER 45 kilos.
At the end of the day, it’s your responsibility to check your weight before you participate! (we operate on hilly terrain, and if the child can’t use weight to stop the segway, that could be a problem!). If in doubt, then come along and see how your child gets on. The parent or guardian signs the disclaimer and takes responsibility, so they need to be comfortable with the decision, too.
If you have children around 7, why not chat to us about a personalised tour?
Age restriction – Too old? Never!
Weight restriction – Too heavy? The maximum load on a Segway is 117kg.
