Three fantastic flying routes ...

We have been busy preparing some suggested flying routes around Scotland for you to try. The routes include interesting historical sites and geographical features as well as details of distilleries along the way and information about airfields, areas of caution, Sky Demon maps, transport plus a suggested place for lunch.

Nessie & The Norsemen – beautiful scenic flight taking in Scotland’s Highest Mountain, Ben Nevis, then flying up the Great Glen along Loch Ness to Inverness. Overhead Inverness and across the lovely Moray Firth and up the rugged east coast from Inverness to Wick. Then over to the sea to Kirkwall in Orkney.

Campbeltown Corner – A trip out to the west coast, taking in some spectacular scenery and overflying the powerful Corryvreckan whirlpool as well as all of the Distilleries on Islay. Lunch is at the scenic Coastal town of Campbeltown which used to be home to over 30 distilleries! Today it has only 3 with another one under construction.

The Rugged West – A trip out to Scotland’s north-western mountainous regions. You cross the Great Glen at Fort Augustus and head over to the magnificent, isolated peaks of Suilven and Stac Pollaidh, along the way you can see one modern “castle” (built by a Swiss national) and the “classic” castle of Eilean Donan an iconic image of Scotland. The outbound journey ends in the pretty town of Plockton.

Simply click on the links below for your route of choice. All routes have opportunities to take fantastic photographs so remember to send in your best photo for our photo competition. You can of course fly sections of the routes over a number of flights, or indeed use them as inspiration to bolt on areas you would like to explore yourself.

A lot of work has gone into preparing these routes and we would therefore request a donation to our charity of choice, Take-Off, if you wish to download and try them. Our suggested donation is £10 per route but any donation is very welcome. If you would like to make a donation to this worthwhile cause, please use the adjacent QR code to make your donation. Alternatively, there are two red donation boxes in the clubhouse.
