Our first Scottish adventure and what an impact it's made. 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. It's zip wire heaven in Loch Lomond.

Open all year which is good as you can go at a not so congested time. (Congested with folk who are scared of climbing up ladders.) But males will need to make sure the harness is on correct or the groin will feel it on the big Tarzan swing.

My 10 year old grandson pestered me to let him go on his attraction, I was a little surprised as he is not a lover of heights. I reluctantly agreed to let him try it, I say reluctant as I am 67 years old and had to accompany him and it's a long time since I did anything like this.... More

This is my second visited to Go Ape, was fab and so much fun. Everyone says about the safety when you say your going but honestly, you have 2 safety ropes attached at all times and after you've done abut the 1st 2 obstacles it's second nature when your up there. Wouldn't advise it if your scared of heights but... More

Everything we hoped for and more! Brilliant afternoon out and well worth the money. I must say, there was a problem with my ropes and I was stuck in the middle of a zip wire. The staff were quick and professional in 'rescuing' me. Highly recommended.

05 September 2016 08:36 I need to start by saying I'm not an outdoor person, my idea of outdoor activity is drinking in a beer garden. However Go Ape was probably one of the most invigorating, adrenaline filled, fun things I've participated in. The guys who work there are informative, and all trained and carry first aid kit (not that... More

We have just finished our adventure at go ape. Dad and three kids (16,13,13) all had a great time. Instructors were good and did well on the safety side of things. Good safety briefing and you get used to the different types of fixings very quickly. The zip wires were brilliant, extremely long and good fun. The only thing which... More

Starting with thrilling zip-wire we enjoyed the whole 5 tracks. The only issue is the service we got on the day we did the adventure. We were driving to the site understanding we will arrive 5-10 minutes late (eventually we arrived on time) and the representatives (2) we spoke with were so difficult and un-willing to help. With that, the... More

This is my second time visiting a Go Ape - The brand clearly has good people working for them who are so polite, friendly and very helpful. They are also good fun and get you to engage and participate with geeing you up for an exciting day. This particular Go-Ape has probably the longest Zip Lines I've been on but... More

Well supervised, really fun morning out. We've been to Peebles go ape so knew what to expect but this had lots of staff who kept a watchful eye, and the different treetop adventures kept you thinking and entertained!

Three of us headed up from Edinburgh for a day out. It's an hour and 20 minutes drive so not too bad and you can make a whole day of it. Allow 3 hours for Go Ape and then explore the forest. Go Ape is suitable for all ages, very safe and you go at your own speed. So much... More
