Treetop Adventure

Our first ever Scottish Treetop Adventure, this high rope experience is fun for the entire family. No one will get left behind as little monkeys find their tree-feet on crossings, climbing towers and, most importantly, ZIPS!  

Your session starts after your safety brief, beginning on the first loop of the course with a handrail and more stable crossings to build your confidence. As your confidence builds, graduate to tricker obstacles, soaring down an epic zip wire for big smiles after each loop of the course. 

Prices: £20

What is Treetop Adventure?

Treetop Adventure is a one to two hour Edinburgh high ropes course for children over 1m tall.

And what a jam-packed high ropes activity for kids it is, too; full of intricate crossings, wobbly bridges and a zip wire finale - guaranteed to evoke screams and laughter. They will tackle tree to tree crossings on 2-3 different loops (depending on the location) with a zip wire to bring you back down onto the forest floor at the end of each loop. Whether you're swinging by their side in the trees or cheering them on from below, you'll be amazed at how much taller they'll walk after conquering the course. 

In this video, you will get a flavour of the activity as we feature the critical parts of the high ropes course, including:

  • Safety briefing
  • Training section
  • The various loops, including treetop crossings and zip wires

    Great fun for all the family and very safe. The staff fully explain how the safety systems work to make sure you remain safe around the course, which is different between the junior and adult courses. The junior course has a safety system where you follow the wire for the entire course and the staff connect you up - perfect as it means you don't have to worry about keeping a constant watch that your children are doing it right. The adult course requires a more hands on approach as you have to keep moving from one safety wire to the next, which allows you to choose between different difficulty options - but you have two lines and must always have one connected so you're not at risk of falling. The courses vary and offer a range of activities. The junior course has two courses and you get to choose which one to go one each time you go round - they operate a time limit here so you can go round as many times as you like in an hour. The adult course is split into 5 stages, with the first being the training section where you're fully supervised. The staff are really friendly and guide you through the process to make sure you remain safe but also enjoy your time. Highly recommended for a trip out for family, friends or even a work team building exercise.
