The Scotoffroad Club
Our mission: "To have as much fun playing in our 4x4's as we possibly can while meeting and making new friends through the club"
The Scotoffroad Club was started in December 2001 to give 4x4 owners the opportunity to come up and drive on the off road driving areas whenever they want. One payment per year and you can use the driving areas as often as you want. This is what the Club is all about, having a 4x4 driving area available to use 365 days a year whenever you want with your own vehicle.
The Club is based at Glentarkie, 10 minutes from Kinross and Perth just off the M90.
The club has gone from strength to strength, we have been going for eighteen years now and the site has evolved hugely over that time with lots more tracks available now as the members carve them out of the wild terrain. We now have over 100 regular members using the site and have all sorts of vehicles from racing specials to brand new Jeeps. Jeep, Land Rover Defenders, Discovery, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Hilux, Shotgun and Pajero are the the most popular makes on site to name a few.
Members also use the site to teach thier kids the basics of driving. Eddie, who teaches his daughter Charley to drive emailed me;"Thank you again for all the hard work you put into the Scotoffroad Club. Teaching Charley has been the best fun at 5mph that I have ever had. The last couple of years has been a great way for me to spend some quality time with my family, doing something completely different. Wee Charley will never forget where she learned to drive."

The Off Road Driving Sites
The hilltop wilderness at Glentarkie is well known throughout Scotland as one of the most exciting and dramatic places to use a 4x4. We have just about everything on the driving areas from seriously steep hills to mind blowing descents and very deep water. The tracks are suitable for all sorts of 4x4's from the normal road going family car to the "off road" special.
The Scotoffroad House
The clubhouse has a sitting area with magazines etc, tea/coffee facilities and a loo. The use of the clubhouse is free for our members and there will always be tea/coffee and milk available. We also have a wash bay to clean your vehicle in.
We have a small grassed area, with BBQ and picnic tables, near to the Clubhouse that can be used for overnight camping, close enough to have the use of the loo and a water supply available!
