What Can I Expect

Tank driving Scotland - ripping it up in a fully-tracked tank in bonny Scotland! The ex-British Army APC FV432 can be driven in Stirling, or at Bridge of Weir in Renfrewshire - and it's going to be awesome!

As soon as you arrive at your chosen basecamp, it is full military mode. You will get kitted out in camouflage gear, (complete with kevlar helmet and war paint on your face) so you're ready to hang out with the tanks.

Attention new recruits! Your first task of the day is to attend a tank briefing, where your instructors will show you the controls of the 432 tank, so at least you'll have some idea before you climb into the driving seat!

Seriously though, just because it's a massive 18 tonne tank doesn't mean it's that complicated to drive. So the gauntlet is down to see if you've got what it takes to drive the tracked heavyweight around the Scottish countryside.

During your one-hour tank driving experience in Scotland, you'll be driving for around 20 glorious minutes. You'll command the tank on a run around the flat course and then you'll tackle the obstacles. Your heart will be pounding as you trundle towards the water troughs and the steeps. But fear not, your big mean military tank can take it all on!

And when you're not driving, you'll be riding in the crew compartment of the tank. Transporting soldiers is what this FV432 did out on the battlefield. We can't say it's comfy in there, but it is a proper laugh and all part of the experience!

Book your voucher to go tank driving in Scotland at Stirling or Bridge of Weir and get ready for a whole load of full-tracked fun. What's more, you can invite friends and family to join in the fun by riding as crew in the tank, with the purchase of a passenger ticket on the day.
