Aberfoyle

Located in the picturesque Trossachs National Park, you can expect incredible natural surrounds at this Go Ape location.

With a stunning backdrop of mountain and moorland, forest and woodland, rivers and lochs - this dual course really is zip wire heaven!

Home to two of the longest zips in the UK you’ll be flying over trees and waterfalls with unprecedented, seasonal views of the hills, valleys and Highlands. 

The start of this Treetop Challenge packs a punch with a colossal 323-metre zip thrill before you’ve even tackled the high-rise challenges. Your reward? A whopping 45-metre-high, 426-metre-long flight back down to earth.

A Scottish Highlands Adventure!

Just an hour from Glasgow, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is located in Trossachs National Park. It’s a mecca for Go Ape pilgrims, thrill seekers, adventure lovers and those who just want to have fun near Loch Lomond.

Get out and about exploring the forest on two wheels. The park is home to Britain’s largest off-road cycle network. Bring the bikes and tackle some of the trails which are ideal for families and mixed abilities.

Put your navigational skills to the test. You can grab a free orienteering map from the visitor centre and explore parts of the forest most visitors don’t venture to.

If all this activity gives you an appetite, then there’s a café to grab some food and drink.

There's also an impressive Lodge Forest Visitor Centre with live CCTV viewing so you can get up close to a wide range of wildlife, and a red squirrel hide within easy strolling distance.

If you’re thinking you’re going to need more than one day to enjoy all this fabulous park has to offer then pack your sleeping bag and tent – there’s a campsite if you fancy staying longer.

  • The actual experience and complete day was amazing and exhilarating. The only reason we gave a 4 was because some of the course was shut..otherwise it would have been a definate 5!

  • Go Ape is an excellent day out. This was our second time going and has seen some improvements since the last time we were there. The higher Tarzan swing is even more fun than the old one and I like having the option to choose between extreme and moderate courses now too! The instructors were all really lovely and came across like they loved their job. There's no pressure to complete the course in a set time and I would definitely recommend it and definitely go back!

  • Okay so you (literally) swing between the emotions of laughing until you may pee yourself to thinking you may pee yourself because you're a scared! Is it work the money? Absolutely! Would I do it again? 100% Would some of my friends do it again? Hell no! Would others? Definitely! The guides/supervisors on site are encouraging, informative, helpful and great fun and if you get a nice day, the views are incredible. Enjoy!
