"I was at your excellent centre yesterday for an off-road 'experience.' Despite the cold weather and snow which started on my drive home to Glasgow, I enjoyed this trip immensely. It was far better that I could ever have imagined. The staff gave a great welcome on arrival and very efficiently booked me in at reception with your very comfortable waiting area.
The cars I drove were superb and having recently bought an Evoque Dynamic I was amazed to find out not only what this car can actually do and how much fun you can have, but also the mechanics behind the off-road capabilities and the safety issues that need to be addressed when going off-road. This was all due to the superb teaching of Louis. I was really very impressed by this extremely knowledgeable, polite and helpful young man. He really is a great credit to your organisation. He managed to go through an immense amount of material in a clear and enthusiastic way that really made you want to pay attention, learn and then try things out. I could not quite believe what I managed to do safely and effectively after his instruction. It was just so exciting and rewarding."
"We spent the afternoon of Monday 4 Feb with you at the Land Rover Experience at Dunkeld. We had a superb time and wanted to thank you all but especially to thank Louis.
We have recently purchased a LR Discovery 4 - just in time given how much snow we have had and that we moved in to a new house in the middle of the Aberdeenshire countryside, a kilometre up a steep'ish track. Clearly I was wrong when I told my wife that I was confident that my 11 year old VW Golf fitted with winter tyres would be 'fine'....
While I have done a lot of off road driving, I had no idea about the capabilities of the LR4 and I have barely driven it having picked it up in December and just handed the keys over to Zoe as I work abroad a lot. I have not even had a chance to read the manual fully.
What i wanted out of the day was to learn what the capabilities of the Land Rover were, learn how and when to use all the systems and for my wife to do as much challenging driving as possible as well as learning the vehicle and its capabilities.
We achieved all of that and couldn't have asked for a better place or person to teach us. The training area you have at Dunkeld is first class and showcases the capabilities of the vehicle perfectly. But even more impressive was the instruction. We spent the afternoon with Louis. Not only was he hugely professional, he was also very personable with an easy and relaxed, but very effective instructional manner which totally put Zoe at ease and contributed hugely to our enjoyment of the day. He was also more than happy to accomodate my Land Rover 'geek' questions. As someone who first car was an 88" Series 3 and having spent my life driving heavily modified Defender military vehicles I am ashamed to admit that I can be a week bit geeky.
I couldn't believe how Land Rover have distilled decades of off road driving knowledge on to a computer which instantly helps you become a competant off road driver. Both Zoe and I now fully understand how all the systems work and have so much confidence in our new car. I was doubly amazed at what the car could do on the standard / OE Wrangler HP All Weather tyres. While we will fit a pair of Pirelli Scorpian ATs when these shoes wear out, it is nice to know that the Wranglers work so well.
Please could we ask you to pass our grateful thanks on to Louis. He is an outstanding instructor and a huge asset to your operation. If i hadn't just bought a Land Rover, I would have after an afternoon with him."
"We would like to thank the staff at Land Rover Experience Scotland and particularly our instructor Gilbert for a great half day on Monday 18 February 2013. Our request to learn more of the capabilities of our Land Rover Discovery 4 was listened to carefully and the practical experience we gained was exceptional. The lessons we learnt will ensure that we get the maximum benefit from the use of our Discovery 4."

"I found the blend of information and driving just perfect and learnt exactly what I was in need of to allow me to gain the confidence to understand the capabilities of a Discovery 4 without having to learn from expensive mistakes. Great facilities at Dunkeld and the whole process was easy and professional. The experience was beyond my expectations and John added to that with his insight, passion and knowledge of all that Land Rovers are."
"Just a quick email to thank the team at Dunkeld for such a fantastic afternoon on Sunday. In particular I would like to thank our expert driving instructors, Libby and Jill who were both fantastic and did an excellent job showing us what the cars our two groups were driving could do, as well as making sure we all enjoyed our day. They were both very professional putting safety first, whilst still making the day very enjoyable as well as very informative. The day was challenging, although we never felt we were beyond out limits and were pleasantly surprised what these outstanding cars are capable of.
"This is just a quick note to thank you for an excellent day in Dunkeld two Fridays ago. My clients had a great day and I think those that don't already own Range Rovers will be looking to rob banks to buy one!!"
"Myself and a friend had the pleasure of a Half Day Adventure in the Defender on Sunday 23rd September 2012. Our instructor for the day was Gilbert. I would just like to acknowledge our sincere thanks for an absolutely excellent day of driving. This was made so special by the patient and professional instruction delivered by Gilbert. I hope to be back at the experience very soon."
"we want to say how much we enjoyed our time at your center yesterday. Jill provided a really great experience of what we can expect from our Freelander and the opportunity to use its potential capabilities. It's one thing to read all about the cars abilities but so much better to learn how to drive it! It was a great time and all the staff were so helpful and pleasant."

"Just a quick thank you to Land Rover Experience Dunkeld, Especially John our instructor for making our experience such an enjoyable one, my 7 year old son can't stop talking about it, nor can I get him to take his Land Rover hat off! Thank you again"
