Gliding in Royal Deeside

As well as the scenic beauty of Royal Deeside, the soaring conditions for gliding are unrivalled

At the Deeside Gliding Club, it is possible to have a trial gliding lesson in a dual control glider, to experience the thrill of gliding as well as view this stunning area from the skies. Think what an ideal and unusual gift this could make for someone special

The Deeside Gliding Club was established in 1963 and since then has become one of the premier sites in the UK with the mountains creating some of the best thermals – the British two-seater record for altitude was set here in 1995 – 37,730 feet! (Normal cruising height for jumbo jets is 33,000feet)
