Multi-activity Centre

Forestry Comission, Glentress Forest, Peebles, Peeblesshire, EH45 8NB

    Built on the hillside within the beautiful Glentress Forest, our Go Ape Peebles adventure makes good use of the valley for some jaw dropping exposure, and features our highest zip-wire over the reservoirs in the valley.

    Go Ape is Scotland's No.1 Tree Top Adventure.

    Head to Glentress Forest, Peebles for two to three hours of fun in the trees, taking on our highest Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of Obstacles and Crossings, including our thrilling Skateboard Zip.

    Anyone can Go Ape. It's best enjoyed with friends and family, or, as we like to call them, your tribe. Come for a special day out with the kids, for a birthday party or for your stag do or hen party.
