Walking on Air
The Scottish Gliding Centre (SGC) has a long history, going back to early experiments at soaring the local hills in the 1930's. The site in its present location was established in the 1950's to take advantage of the ridge-soaring possibilities of the adjacent Lomond and Benarty hills. Hill-soaring remains a popular activity, although with the increases in performance of modern gliders, much higher and longer flights are now possible in suitable weather conditions, using thermal and wave lift.
We have recently upgraded our facilities to enable people with disabilities access. This includes level entry toilets, showers and an access ramp.
We welcome you to contact us and come for a trial flight. Or why don't you simply arrange to come along and meet us, watch others fly and have a relaxing day out.
New members are always welcome, from teenagers upwards - you too can learn to fly!
