Description

Want to get some more adventure near Loch Lomond, then visit Go Ape in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.

It has two of the country’s longest zip wires, each over 400 metres (426 metres is the longest). If that’s not enough, you fly 150 feet above the ground and right over a 90-foot waterfall!

While at the Trossachs National Park, you could also try one of Britain’s largest off-road cycle networks, which include family and mixed ability trails. Or, head out on foot, and try one of the free orienteering maps.

Experience the thrill of zip wires in the dark!

Love Go Ape? Fancy yourself a zipline hero? Then our Sundown Zips is just the thing for you! With this Sundown special you'll begin your after-dark experience with only minimal lighting to guide you. Then, once you're safely attached to the course, you’ll be able to zip across our stunning sites by the light of the setting sun or moon. Nothing quite beats the rush of adrenaline as you step off a platform in the dark and zip through the forest in the crisp autumn night air.
What are you waiting for?
