Aberfoyle

(Stirlingshire)

Near Glasgow

In Short – it’s Zip Wire Heaven in Loch Lomond.

Our first Tree Top Adventure in Scotland and what an impact it’s made. Stunning scenery of the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in Aberfoyle (Stirlingshire) gives the course a jaw-dropping backdrop and makes for a great day out in Scotland.

Oh, and let’s not forget, arguably, the course’s main attraction: Two of Britain’s longest zip wires, each stretching over 400m long, flying customers 150 feet above the ground and over a 90 foot waterfall.

A mecca for Go Ape pilgrims, thrill seekers, adventure lovers & those that just want to get out and have some fun in Loch Lomond.

Feedback from Aberfoyle

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla’s mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!) And why not have a peek at what people are saying about us on Trip Advisor.

Rated 5 Bananas Neil - Tree Top Adventure, on 28 July 2015
The whole experience was great over all. But think group size could be made smaller. so as to cause less hold ups.
Rated 5 Bananas Laura - Tree Top Adventure, on 27 July 2015
This was my first time at Go Ape. I booked for myself, my boyfriend and nieces, we all thoroughly enjoyed our day. We were made to feel welcome and the safety briefing was very detailed which put us at easy. The experience was much better than I expected. Will definitely be back and have already recommended it to family and friends.
Rated 5 Bananas Stephen - Tree Top Adventure, Forest Segway, Zip Trekking Adventure, on 27 July 2015
Just brilliant experience
Rated 5 Bananas DAVID - Tree Top Adventure, on 27 July 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience as did my son however i have one negative but unfortunately it is a big one . Way too many people were booked on our time slot and as a consequence it took us 3 1/2 hours to go round the course rather than say 1 1/2 hours. Sometimes we waited half an hour to get started once reaching a new obstacle. Pity cos otherwise it was terrific
Rated 5 Bananas Malcolm - Tree Top Adventure, on 27 July 2015
More exciting than I expected, but felt very safe (even on the scary bits)
