Go Ape Glentress Forest

Falla Brae Car Park Glentress Forest, Peebles, EH45 8NB. Scotland

Welcome to the home of the highest zip wire in Scotland.

Tucked away in the picturesque Glentress Forest, this hidden gem boasts an adrenaline-filled activity set against some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery. The perfect backdrop to this dramatically challenging Go Ape Peebles course with a 325-metre-long zip wire across a valley that’s a whopping 160ft high!

See the adventure unfurl while you traverse the huge Douglas fir trees and zip over the open water and mountain bike trails. Go Ape Peebles has bike racks available at the cabin, or take advantage of the bike hire available.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
