WE are NOT currently accepting new bookings for Scotland or Northumberland

Normally, we operate hot air balloon flights over south-east Scotland and Northumberland in England. However, at present we are not accepting new bookings in these areas due to recent poor weather in Scotland and the resulting backlog of passengers. We hope that you will recognise that we care a great deal about customer service, and will not accept more passengers than we can cope with. When operating, flights take place just south of Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh over the picturesque Lothian and Peeblesshire countryside, further south in the heart of the Scottish Borders and over the dramatic scenery of Perth, Kinrosshire and Fife just north of Edinburgh. For Northumberland flights, please read the comments below.

  • Hot Air Balloon Rides in Lothians & Peeblesshire

    Meet At Hillend, Edinburgh

    Balloon Rides in the Lothians & Peeblesshire

    WE are NOT currently accepting new bookings for Scotland or Northumberland.

    We meet you on the southern outskirts of Edinburgh and take you to one of several nearby launch sites either in Midlothian or Peeblesshire so as to best take advantage of the prevailing wind direction. Sites include Penicuik, West Linton, Eddleston and Peebles.

    The area offers castles, gorges, lochs and reservoirs, old limekiln ruins, iron age fort ruins and picturesque villages all situated in a landscape that varies from a wilderness to that of rich cultivation. The surrounding Pentland, Moorfoot and Lammermuir ranges of hills, the Forth and Edinburgh's unique skyline combine to give a dramatic backdrop to the whole area.
