    Moto Scotlad

    Having no off road experience at all I recently did the one day level 1 course (I will be returning to do level 2)with Clive at Moto Scotland. I can’t recommend them highly enough, Clive and Donna are passionate about all things to do with motorcycling.
    Clive’s tuition is first rate and puts all students at ease and with the training facilities being on the Duke of Argyll’s estate the scenery is stunning.
    So if you fancy a great day or weekend learning the off road skills give me them a call you’ll not be disappointed

    Highly recommended

    I went up there a few years ago now ... was absolutely fantastic even tho on the last day I had a big spill !!! No broken bones ... but did damage the bike badly ... think they wrote it off ... ... cost me the excess of £500

    Would I return ? Certainly would ... but not sure Clive would have me

    Very sad to hear that Moto Scotland are ceasing to offer off-road training in Inveraray at the end of the year.

    According to their website, "this is due to an ever-changing range of unforeseen external factors that are beyond their control".

    Not only will the Moto Scotland team be impacted on, but I'll bet that a few other local businesses will suffer.

    Having met Clive a few times, I can imagine that he fought hard to keep the business viable and that the decision to close was not taken lightly.

    A friend was on a course there last weekend - apparently the last course there will be. Clive is selling off quite a lot of equipment but not, as far as I know, bikes.

    I was told that he no longer has permission to use the land.
