Christmas Adventures at MadMax

September 28, 2017 : News

With only 86 days (at time of writing) until Christmas, the MadMax team is getting excited and ready for a busy end to the year in true festive style.

MadMax Adventures, based on the picturesque Kirknewton Estate on the western outskirts of Edinburgh, boasts over 600 acres of pure adventure terrain – a veritable outdoor playground offering a variety of adrenaline packed activities to kick start your Christmas season with a bang, engine rev or an arrow “thwack”. At MadMax we offer traditional Archery, Live Clay Pigeon Shooting, an extensive and extremely popular Quad Bike Safari , our challenging and specifically designed 4×4 Off Roading course, and not forgetting our mini Highland Games challenges.

Corporate Groups

MadMax is often used by corporate groups as the perfect alternative Christmas “away day” activity experience location, and also with a view to improving effectiveness by developing more cohesive teams, rewarding high performance or building relationships with valued customers. With all corporate bookings in the month of December we’ll include mince pies and a selection of festive headwear, as well as some mulled wine for guests as they warm themselves over an open log-burning fire pit at the end of their activities. If you want to make a day of it, why not include a festive themed lunch or BBQ?

Gift Vouchers

Need some Christmas gift inspiration? We also offer MadMax activity Gift Vouchers. These are the ideal Christmas present for a partner or loved one, and can be redeemed against activity experience bookings made on our regular public open days.


Please find more details on our MadMax activities below:

Outdoor Team BuildingOur Archery range boasts adjustable targets meaning that all levels of experience can be taken into consideration and it’s not just a case of picking up the bow and shooting; our experienced Instructors will coach you towards being more accurate and introduce a number of challenges and games to give the session more of an edge.




Our Clays Shooting range operates fully automatic traps which simulate the flights of game birds such as pheasants, teal and grouse. Our instructors will make sure you are comfortable with the gun and the sport before some friendly competition begins. We also offer unlimited clays, which means our Instructors can demo the flight of the “bird” before you have to pull the trigger.




Our Quad Trail has all the inclines, declines, ruts, water splashes and side slopes required to push our fleet of bikes to their limits (and more!). As well as all the safety equipment you require, we also provide waterproofs to keep you warm and dry during the typical Scottish winter weather. This is Scotland and whilst we can guarantee the scenery, we can’t always guarantee the weather! Quad biking in the snow, however, has to be experienced!





4×4 Off Road Driving is another action-packed activity available at our MadMax Adventures site. We always use Land Rover Defenders for this experience and we can guarantee you will have a new-found respect for these unbelievable vehicles and what they are capable of.





The final, but certainly not the least favourite activity offered at MadMax is our ever-popular mini Highland Games. With activities including caber toss, welly wanging, shot putt, haggis hurling, weight for height and tug of war, this is the perfect ice breaker or ultimate finale. Teams or Clans compete against each other with the ultimate aim of scoring more points than the other teams and being declared the overall winners. Why not enhance your Mini Highland Games experience by including one of our highly entertaining ‘extras’; whisky tasting, pipes and drums, traditional “heavies” or Tartan to clad your clan-mates in.
