It was a lovely early morning at Hartree on 4th June this year, calm, clear and cool; a perfect day for a balloon trip. And so it was that Mark and his team came to the beautiful grounds of Hartree House to fly their hot air balloon.

With perfect conditions for flying, the balloon took off right outside the house and rose vertically into the calm air giving stunning views of the estate and the surrounding countryside. As the balloon gained altitude so pilot Mark found an air current and they drifted with the wind in an easterly direction towards Skirling, executing a perfect landing nearly one hour after take-off.

All in all it was a successful flight, enjoyed by all, and providing an unforgettable experience for the passengers. They will be back for more!
