Overview

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.

Had a fantastic day with kids 13 and 10. The sense of accomplishment on their faces was worth every penny, that and the zip lines, WOW, the zip lines.......just that. Amazing!

My partner and I really enjoyed our experience here. Very welcoming team members, which was reassuring as we have never done anything like this before. Scary at the beginning, but enjoyed ourselves at the end.

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
