Flew on 30th August with two friends from Turriff with Martin and his crew. A fantastic experience from start to finish! Helped get the balloon ready which added to the excitement after a little wait to ensure wind died down for safest flying conditions. The sun broke through as we took off and stayed out for the entire flight over the Aberdeenshire countryside, beautiful views all the way to the sea at Fraserburgh and towards the mountains past rolling farmland. Saw deer, swallows in flight, loads of very interested farm animals and quite a few people waving as we soared overhead before landing in a field at New Deer for Bucks Fizz, champagne or orange juice. So peaceful up in the air, could have stayed there all day! A must do for any age! We were very lucky to get up on our first attempt. Bus back to Turriff to collect car, very well organised and Martin and his crew very friendly, felt in good safe hands throughout.

Was lucky enough to get a gift of a hot air balloon flight which left from the Haughs in Turriff, it was our six attempt at getting up because of the weather but was well worth the wait. Once you were off the ground it was very smooth. One thing I would advise is that you take a hat with you as it gets very hot on your head and ears when the burners are on. We have some great photos of the surrounding areas. We landed in the Methlick area and it was great fun sipping our champagne and then making the balloon up again to be packed away it its small bag. Our pilot for the night was very informative and a great experience had by all Thank you Virgin
