Try mountain biking at Nevis Range. For the biggest rush, hire a full suspension downhill bike with full face helmet and body armour from Nevis Cycles, jump in the gondola and have a go at the World Cup Downhill course. If you can manage around about 4 or 5 minutes for the ride back down the hill then you might want to try entering the annual world cup races which take place on this course!
Alternatively, opt for a cross country bike and have a go at the Witches Trail in the forest at the base station. The downhill sections built for the MTB World Championships in 2007 will certainly get your blood pumping!
