High Ropes Courses Edinburgh

Go Ape has you covered if you're looking for an adventure near Edinburgh.

We have two fantastic high ropes course locations within an hour of Edinburgh. All Go Ape sites are unique and offer exhilarating high rope experiences that will live with you and your Tribe for a lifetime. Our Edinburgh locations perfectly illustrate the wide range of adventure we offer.

The tricky question is, which one will you choose?

Go Ape Dalkeith Country Park

Go Ape Dalkeith Country Park

If you're looking for a family day out near Edinburgh, look no further than Go Ape Dalkeith.

Go Ape's newest location features Scotland's first Go Ape high ropes course for young children, Treetop Adventure and Treetop Adventure Plus. The Treetop Challenge course is designed for anyone taller than 1.4m. You'll love the eight epic zip wires that cross the river Esk. The beautiful backdrop of Dalkeith Country Park is pretty special too.

Go Ape Dalkeith Edinburgh - the key details

  • Less than 25 minutes from Edinburgh
  • Choose from three high ropes courses:
    • Treetop Adventure is great for all children, but especially younger ones, as this activity is available to anyone over 1m tall. Tackle tree to tree crossings on 3 different loops with a zip wire to bring you back down onto the forest floor at the end of each loop.
    • Treetop Adventure Plus is a step up from Treetop Adventure, so children need to be at least 1.2m to participate. Get ready and raring for more height, speed and wobble! Once you've mastered the Treetop Adventure Course, take on an extra loop of fun which includes a zip wire that goes over the river.
    • Treetop Challenge is the biggie. There are four loops of fun with sky-scraping platforms, butterfly inducing crossings to master and hair raising zips over the river. Because of the continuous belay safety system, anyone over 1.4m can take part, regardless of their age.
  • Set in the family-friendly Dalkeith Country Park


"Brilliant. 100% worth the money. The staff were very friendly & helpful and it all felt very safe. There was a safety briefing first & a practice course to try out. If you changed your mind about doing the adventure after the practice course you could have a full refund. The whole family had a brilliant time. Different routes for different levels with some great zip-lines."
