A 4 x 4 driving experience

Why not experience the excitement of driving a 4 x 4 on our technical, off-road course in woodland close to Winton Castle near Edinburgh?

The demanding terrain will test your driving skills on its steep, slippery slopes, through water and over piles of logs, all under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

A 4×4 off road driving course designed for new car launches

Winton’s purpose-built off-road 4 x 4 course was originally designed for the UK launch of the Jeep Renegade so is ideal for new car launches. Watch the new Jeep Renegade being tested:

Winton’s off-road course has recently been comprehensively upgraded with new challenges, including ramps, rollers to test drive systems, ditches to cross, axle-twisters, winch challenges and a range of mud and gravel terrains to traverse.

Large numbers of visitors can be catered for with 3 or 4 vehicles, and by including other Winton activities.

Off-road BORDA driver training at our 4 x 4 school

  • Is off-road driving something you have always wanted to try or maybe you want to understand how your own 4×4 vehicle works?
  • Do you need professional certificated driver training for you or your employees using a 4×4 or ATV vehicle?
  • Want to know how to correctly and safely use a vehicle mounted winch?
  • Already drive a 4×4 or ATV and want to improve your skill level?

Our BORDA (British Off Road Driving Association) qualified instructor, Hugh Roberts, also trains several Mountain Rescue teams at Winton!

Hugh of Far by Four can tailor any course or driving experience to suit the requirements of an individual or a group, ensuring you get the most out of your time at Winton Castle.

The iconic Land Rover Defender is very much at home around the off road track as well as the latest generation, extremely capable Mitsubishi L200 pick up.

“Both Brian and Rhona have completed a number of the off-road driving courses at various locations and thought  the new venue, Winton Castle, was perfect with a great mixture of varied terrain to practice on. (I think Rhona also really enjoyed driving past the wedding that was taking place!)”  (Grant Far by Four)

We can offer vehicle familiarization or try-before-you-buy driving experiences to demonstrate how the vehicle works and how to get the best from it.

Does the thought of threading a two-seat, competition-based, V8 Land Rover along some gnarly tracks appeal to you?
