Built on the hillside within the beautiful Glentress Forest (part of Tweed Valley Forest Park), our Go Ape Peeblesshire Tree Top Adventure makes good use of the valley for some jaw dropping exposure, and features our highest zip wire over the reservoirs in the valley. Take to the trees and speed down zip slides. They’re part of an exciting course of rope bridges, Tarzan swings and crossings; all set high above the forest floor. If you’re looking for things to do near Edinburgh, extend your day out with us. The small town of Peebles is just 2.5 miles away and has a great High Street with more independent shops than any other town in Scotland for great days out with the family.

Second visit and just as good. Staff are excellent and know their job. Safety is a priority. Added to this views to die for.

Super fun. This place was better than another zipline place we went to. You get a training class pretty quick and then you get to do it, with no real supervision. It gradually works you up to more difficult things. And there is an easy...More

Something a bit different. Great fun and challenging in places. Great helpful instruction. Pity they couldn't control the weather for us but it certainly did not spoil the fun
