Skaigh Riding Stables
Dartmoor offers riding without parallel! Covering more than 300 square miles it is England's largest wilderness. Our riding on the moor is unrestricted - we ride where there are no metalled roads and hardly any traffic. This is an ideal destination for intrepid and adventurous riders. The scenery varies dramatically, from wild and remote granite tors to gentle purple heather and yellow gorse-covered slopes.

Dartmoor Gliding Society
Dartmoor Gliding Society is a small but very friendly club located on picturesque moorland in beautiful South Devon within sight of the very well known Brentor Church. Our Club was founded in 1983 by a small group of enthusiasts with a twin seat open cockpit glider with a wooden hut to keep it in and a lot of energy to carve out a runway on the top of Burnford Common.
From these humble beginnings the club has steadily progressed to become the thriving gliding community it is today. The club now boasts a well cared for grass runway, a refurbished club house and a purpose built hangar to house the club fleet of 2 twin seat training gliders and 3 single seat gliders. Launching is by winch only. The site offers good thermal soaring and , when the wind is in the east, Wave to heights in excess of 16000 feet right off the end of the wire.
