When it comes to Christmas presents, books, bath salts and Barbies are all very well.
Just not as memorable as flying a falcon; firing a shotgun or taking a spin in a helicopter.
The best presents stick in the mind forever and that is exactly what these Big Deals with Adventure 001 offer.
Fly a falcon
Option one is for a three hour falconry experience from Adventure 001.
Perfect for bird lovers, your experience will take place at Luggiebank in Cumbernauld in the largest bird of prey centre open to the public in Scotland.
The centre has a great range of birds including eagles, vultures, hawks, falcons, owls, kites and some other unusual species of birds such as parrots and a rhea.
Over the course of three hours, you will learn how these birds operate in the wild from the centre’s expert handlers.
Not only will you learn about their behaviour, you will also get a chance to handle the animals, before being treated to an awesome professional display.
Clay target shooting
Option two is for 1 person to enjoy a clay target shooting experience at Cumbernauld Shooting School.
This offer would be brilliant for stag and hen events, corporate days out or simply a great introduction to a fun, new pastime.
Located 45 minutes from Edinburgh, just over a half hour drive from Glasgow and not far from the M8 and M9, Cumbernauld Shooting School is easy to access.
Whether you are already a crack shot or have never held a gun before, the school’s friendly and expert instructors will guide you through your experience and help you get the most from your visit.
Voucher holders will be at the school for around an hour and a half with your shooting tuition lasting about an hour.
Each shooter will have a minimum of 32 clays and cartridges.
Shooting all those clays from the sky can be thirsty work. The offer includes a light lunch in the school’s comfortable clubhouse: warming soup and a crusty roll in the winter or tea and cake in the warmer months.
Option three is for an amazing helicopter flight from Adventure 001.
Taking off from East Fortune airfield, Perth Airport or Cumbernauld Airport, this offer would make an unforgettable present for anyone who has ever wanted the thrill of flying in a helicopter.
Passengers will head for the clouds in a Bell 206 Jet Ranger (or its equivalent).
At cruising height, you will be able to see all the local landmarks spread out below as you have never seen them before.
The East Fortune flight takes in the Bass Rock and Firth of Forth while the Cumbernauld flight soars over Palacerigg Country Park and Fannyside Lochs.
The Perth flight will give unforgettable views of Scone Palace and the Tay Bridge.
During the journey, passengers will cover around twelve miles and have plenty of opportunities to take pictures so that you can relive the experience again and again.
Spectators are welcome to watch the take-off and landing.
Flight times will vary according to local conditions but will last a minimum of seven minutes.
The offer is for a rear seat in the cabin but, for an extra £10, there is the option to upgrade to the co-pilot experience and sit with the pilot in the cockpit.
Of course, a full safety briefing and public liability insurance are included in the deal.
