What Can I Expect

Farm your 4x4 skills in Dumfries! Head down to this working farm in the Lowlands of Scotland to see if you can drive a 4x4 like a farmer. You might even get the chance to help out with some of the daily farming tasks while you're driving.

Just outside Lockerbie you'll find Kirkwood, owned by the sixth generation of the Steel family. They do holidays, activities (including this 4x4 driving), experiences and really good beef and lamb here, proving that you can successfully run a farm, host activities and welcome holidaymakers.

When you've got sheep and cows to look after on an estate that covers 600-acres of Scottish countryside, you need help. That's where the 4x4 comes in. The Land Rover Discovery is the trusty workhorse of the farm. Reliable, rugged and surprisingly agile for such a bit car, they can go pretty much anywhere on this sort of varied terrain.

As you drive around on the private roads, tracks and trails of this Lockerbie estate, you'll get an insight into the workings of the farm. And through a mixture of instruction, demos and driving, you'll be tackling some tricky terrain as you go. Learn the angle of approach for hills, test your mettle in the gullies and ditches. Splash through the fords and splatter through the mud. It's great fun.

An expert 4x4 driver will be by your side at all times, showing you how to get the very best out of the Landy. For example, you might be taught when to use four wheel drive and when you make use of low ratio. All sessions are geared to you and what you're most interested in trying - all within your comfort zone, of course.

On the longer 4x4 driving skills sessions at this farm near Lockerbie you might very well be taking on another classic farmer 4x4 challenge - hooking up and towing a trailer. The Land Rover is the perfect vehicle for this sort of work, making moving hay, feed and anything else a farmer might need look easy. Book your 4x4 session and see what happens on the farm!
