Venue type: Outdoor

Expect two for the price of one at Go Ape Crathes Castle. Not only will you challenge yourself to a high ropes adventure, but also have a chance to explore the enchanting 16th-century Castle grounds. Talk about a bargain!

After a speedy safety briefing, release your ape instincts high above the forest floor. 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.
