You can be active and burn off those calories…

Play a round of golf while enjoying the magnificent scenery of the Firth of Clyde; take to the water in a kayak, sailing dinghy or learn to sail at the National Water Sports Centre; cycle round the island on a bike, a tandem, a quad or a conference bike – or just sit back and watch the kids burn off their energy.
