About Go Ape Aberfoyle

Mountains, moorland, valleys, highlands, rivers and lochs - you’ll see it all as you clamber through Go Ape Aberfoyle's treetops. The first of our three Scottish courses, you’ll find two of the longest zip wires in the UK here, so buckle up and get ready to enjoy the ride!
 
Fun Activities for Thrill Seekers
Adventure lovers, you're in for a world of unprecedented views, monkey mayhem and unforgettable adventures. 

Before the mayhem can begin you must attend an informative safety briefing but don't worry it's not your average safety briefing... You'll learn all about which clips to use and where to put them and what to do in an emergency. You'll get to test out what you've learnt during a safety practice before you go up high. 

There’s no time to catch your breath on this Treetop Challenge. Head for heights and expect nothing but thrills! You’ll kick things off with a thrilling 323m zip line experience before you’ve barely set foot in the trees. With a series of high-rise challenges and tricky obstacles up to 22m high, this is one for the ultimate thrill-seeker! Zipline fanatics will LOVE the dramatic finish of the final zip line. You'll soar through the tree canopy before swiftly being bought back down to earth.

The introduction of a dual course means your tribe can easily fill the allotted 2-3 hours with rope ladders, dual zip wires and a tree lift. Choose between the moderate or extreme route depending on how confident you feel. The courses also feature back-to-back extreme crossings which will make a few knees quake - are you brave enough?

If you like the sound of the zip wires and would rather skip the obstacles in between, the Zip Line Experience is just the thing for you. With two exhilarating rides on cross-valley zips, you'll experience the best views the course has to offer with this quick zip fix.

And if you like to keep your feet firmly on the forest floor, head out on some walking routes or on a two-wheeled adventure on cycle trails. A perfect family day out for everyone and those who love outdoor activities!
 
Food & Drink
So, you've just crushed the high-ropes and all of the tree-to-tree crossings and you're feeling invincible. But even unstoppable apes need to fill up their tummies after a day of fun in the canopies. Pump some energy back into your bodies with delicious grub from the onsite cafe.

Bringing your own food with you? You'll love the scenic picnic benches overlooking the forest. It's the perfect way to end your Go Ape adventure while soaking up the stunning views as you eat.
