Full Description

Enjoy a bird's eye view on board a luxury helicopter and see for miles around; a truly spectacular way to view Scotland from above!

As you depart the helipad you'll climb up to 2000ft and see great views of Edinburgh Airport below you, before travelling north towards South Queensferry.  Travelling along the coastline you'll see spectacular views of the Victorian engineering phenomenon, the Forth Rail Bridge, opened in 1890 which still to this day, dominates the skyline.  Beside it you'll see the 1964 Forth bridge, built to carry traffic from Edinburgh to the Kingdom of Fife, and you'll get the chance to spot the Queensferry Crossing as it's construction is well underway, with the completion due in 2017.

You'll also see the stunning 1701 Hopetoun House, set in 6500 acres of grounds including walled gardens and a large pond to the front, the best way to see this beautiful estate, is by air.

On your return to the helipad, you'll have a camera full of stunning shots!
