The first Tree Top Adventure in Scotland is set in the stunning scenery of the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in Aberfoyle, Stirlingshire, which gives the course a jaw-dropping backdrop and makes for a great day out in central Scotland.
The course’s main attraction could be said to be two of Britain’s longest zip wires, each stretching over 400m long, flying customers 150 feet above the ground and over a 90 foot waterfall. There are also tarzan swings, rope ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings to test your nerve!
A mecca for Go Ape pilgrims, thrill seekers, adventure lovers & those that just want to get out and have some fun in the Loch Lomond and the Trosscahs National Park. A new state of the art Visitor Centre has opened featuring a cafe that offers a spectacular floor to ceiling view of the forest.
