Walk in the footsteps of Ancient Rome - Rough Castle Experiences

Segway at Falkirk Wheel

Take to your very own “magic carpet” and fly with us through woodland paths at Rough Castle and explore the Falkirk Wheel site like never before on a family experience like no other.

Segways are self-balancing and gentle: you need no skill or experience. In fact, the less you think about it, the quicker you get the hang of the incredible experience! We teach ‘000s of people a year to Segway, our guides are friendly, relaxed and skilled and know the best routes and the secret paths, so you will get the most out of your Segway Experience.

Enjoy fabulous views as we meet the Union Canal, and then onwards to explore wonderful woodland trails. Glide with us along the beautiful Antonine Wall – UNESCO World Heritage site and discover the fascinating remains of an ancient Roman Fortress, Rough Castle (the northern-most outpost of the Ancient Roman Britain!).

The Army Cadets from 3 companies of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlander’s Battalion Army Cadet Force, really enjoyed themselves at the event organised by Rough Castle Experience its safe to say it was great end to their two week Summer Cadre Training and are still talking about it now, excellent fun provided by a great and reputable company. It was especially good after the lack of cadet activities due to the COVID pandemic.
