Overview

At the start of the day you’ll meet at the tank driving site near Auchterhouse, Dundee. After a full safety briefing you’ll change into full military apparel and board the fully armored tank, ready for the fun to begin!Weighing in at 15 tons the FV432 tank saw service in many of the British Military campaigns over the last 30 years. It’s powerful engine allows it to navigate the most taxing of terrain and overland can reach speeds of up to 30mph. As an armored personnel carrier the FV432 can also take passengers in the rear, an experience in itself! You have the opportunity to drive this impressive machine through the custom built tank driving course which includes steep assents, descents, water courses and open tracks where you can open her up overland. You will spend approximately 60 minutes driving the FV432 tank under the supervision of the tank master.

Traveled here with two 16 year boys who can only say that they had a great time. The weather was also great. Facilities were very basic but you are after all in the hills. I would also say that there is a toilet.
