Excellent place to visit for Karting. Would give 5 stars if a little more affordable. Entrance fee to the museum seems a little over the top go side ting it’s size and self appointed “National Motorsports Museum”. Would recommend Keating as a fun activity.

If going around the race track at speed in an exotic car like the Ferrari is a little rich for the whole family to experience, why not opt for the “Highlands Taxi”. Still a thrill and can take 4 persons at a time. You can’t...More
