Attraction Information

Feel like royalty as you clamber through the trees at Go Ape Aberdeen, the ultimate high ropes adventure nestled amongst the grounds of this 16th century castle.

After a speedy safety briefing, release your ape instincts high above the forest floor on the Treetop Challenge course. Navigate rope crossings and cling on for dear life on a Tarzan swing, all before whipping along 592m of zip wires! This course has some unexpected obstacles like the tricky Apple Picker's Ladder, as well as a totally gnarly skateboard zip wire. See if you can attempt a few tricks as you zoom along!

The 400-year-old castle is surrounded by 240 hectares of formal gardens and woodland walks, all framed by the rolling Scottish scenery. After you’ve dropped back down to earth, take a few hours to get lost in the grounds - a picnic may even be in order. Just keep an eye out for the Green Lady whose ghostly form has stalked the castle grounds since the 1800s.
  • Tree Top Challenge with zip wires, rope ladders and more
  • Don’t miss the Apple Picker's Ladder
  • Explore the grounds of Crathes Castle

Special COVID-19 safety measures, including limited group sizes, markers to help observe social distancing, hand washing stations and more, will be in place to keep you and your tiny monkeys safe during your Go Ape adventure. Learn more in the video below.
