Dalkeith, Edinburgh

Ready to get your heart pumping? Look no further than Go Ape Dalkeith.

With 8 awesome zip wires across the River Esk and sky-high platforms, there’s something for everyone. From adults looking for the ultimate thrill, to young adventurers finding their pace, Go Ape Dalkeith is perfect for pushing boundaries. 

The adventures continue on the ground, beginning with Archery Tag, a fun-filled hour for adults and children over 8 years. Think dodgeball with bows and foam-topped arrows, a great activity for groups, team days and birthday parties. 

Top off your adventure with Stumped, the fiendishly thinky-thinky, problem-solving logic game and consists of 10 puzzles that players must solve to reveal a four-digit code. Each code opens a lock box that provides a clue to the next puzzle. 

And even better, you'll get to take in some pretty incredible scenery while you're at it. The 1000 acres of Dalkeith Country Park gives you a beautiful backdrop of ancient woodlands, gardens, historic buildings and picturesque ponds, located just two minutes away from the Edinburgh Bypass.
