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.
Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
