Air Extreme is the most northerly high ropes course in the UK, located just off the A836 between John O’Groats and Thurso. The only one of it’s kind in the UK, it provides a high ropes experience with six elements & the final descent.
Having ascended the rope ladder to the first platform, participants then traverse the cargo net, around 7 metres in the air. Once crossed, then comes then grapevine, a tightrope 4 metres long. Having balanced across the tightrope, next comes the loops. Swing from one to the other before tackling the balance beams. Not just one, but two wooden beams, cross from one to the next, before the wobbly bridge crosses you to the final element before descent—the swinging steps. Right foot first, and swing for the next step. Finally time to get back to the ground, simply step off and let our descender lower you to the ground. It’s as simple as that!
