What does that mean? Go Ape! is high ropes and zip line course in Queen Elizabeth Park near Aberfoyle where you can fly 46 meters above the ground on two of Britain’s longest zip wires. They swung through the trees, swooped on a swing, and crossed perilous bridges high in the forest canopy.
From the website “Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings. Boasting some of the longest Zip Wires in Britain, Aberfoyle is in a league of its own. At a dizzying 120ft high and 426 metres long the grand finale at our first Scottish adventure is an exhilarating and memorable experience!”
There is a lovely visitor center, picnicking areas, a pond, and walking trails. A onsite café serves drinks, snacks, and lunch.
Plan to pay for parking or walk 10 minutes uphill from Aberfoyle.
Go Ape! is in Loch Lomand & Trossachs National Park, specifically in the Queen Elizabeth Park just uphill from Aberfoyle.
Finn and I would have gone too, but you have to be 10 for this course. There are 31 Go Ape! locations around the U.K. and some have smaller courses for smaller people.
Book your adventure online as the spots fill up. You start the course with safety instructions before zipping off.
