Trends / Adventure

Scotland is a veritable paradise for thrill seekers and there are loads of activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. Here are some of the best.

If you fancy bungee jumping, you can take a leap off a crane in Glasgow with Highland Fling Bungee. For a slightly more sedate activity, try paragliding on the isle of Arran. You can go up just once or sign up to a multiday course with Flying Fever.

At ground level there are loads of thrills to be had too. One good spot is Knockhill Racing Circuit near Dunfermline, where you can take out racing cars and get to grips with the 1.3-mile circuit.

If you prefer to propel yourself under your own steam, Scotland is an amazing place for mountain biking. Check out the 7stanes mountain biking center in the Scottish Borders, where there are trails to suit all abilities.

Another super fun outing is land yachting, where you hurtle along the sand in a go kart with a sail. You can try it with Blown Away Experiences in Saint Andrews, with the wide sandy beach at West Sands.

In the winter months, choose from one of five ski resorts. The pick of the bunch is CairnGorm Mountain in the Cairngorms National Park.

Get Through Airport Security Faster with CLEAR

Getting through airport security can be a nightmare in and of itself, adding extra hours to your trip that could better be spent in any number of more enjoyable activities. Programs like Global Entry and TSA PreCheck are helping to make the process a little more bearable, but a new program, CLEAR, is quickly emerging as an up-and-coming way to make things even easier.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
