Dalkeith Edinburgh

Situated in the beautiful Dalkeith Country Park, just two minutes from the Edinburgh Bypass, the course boasts eight zip wires across the River Esk.

Not far from Edinburgh city centre, but buried deep in the countryside, Go Ape at Dalkeith has something for everyone.

Mega zip rides and sky-high platforms supply the thrills for adults and older children, whilst young adventurers can take to the tree tops as well, conquering incrementally challenging courses to build their confidence and leave them feeling like a hero.

The 1000-acres of Dalkeith Country Park set a beautiful backdrop to your tree top experience with ancient woodlands, gardens, historic buildings and picturesque ponds.

  • My 9 and 10 year old boys visited Go Ape Coventry on our way home via Birmingham Airport. They did the Adventure plus experience. They had both been to high ropes courses before and found this one to be interesting and challenging. It is set in a lovely country park enabling you to extend your visit beyond the Go Ape experience. I would recommend this to anyone with children who love climbing and being outdoors.

  • My family and I had a great afternoon at Go Ape in Coventry at the weekend. The course was challenging, but most enjoyable, and the staff were efficient and pleasant, with Health and Safety being their number 1 priority.

  • We had a great time at Coombe Abbey Go Ape. The staff are great very friendly and helpful. The safety briefing is very thorough and they are always watching to make sure you are safe.

  • The staff at coombe abbey are great. We booked for a party of 10 children and the Staff were great with the children. Very impressed with the shelter to hire. Only thing that would be good is to have some sort of wind defender as the wind blows off the field into the shelter. Also just one little thing, could you serve tea and coffee from the go ape shed? Thank you all for an enjoyable morning!
