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.
NEW Forest Visitor Centre at Aberfoyle. Forestry Commission Scotland are proud to unveil the state of the art centre, featuring a cafe that offers a spectacular floor to ceiling view of the forest.
