Just an hour from Glasgow and a well earned stop on the Heart 200, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is located in Trossachs National Park. It’s a mecca for Go Ape pilgrims, thrill seekers, adventure lovers and those who just want to have fun near Loch Lomond.
At this Go Ape site you can expect incredible natural surrounds with a stunning backdrop of mountain and moorland, forest and woodland, rivers and lochs – this dual course really is zip wire heaven!
Home to two of the longest zips in the UK you’ll be flying over trees and waterfalls with unprecedented, seasonal views of the hills, valleys and Highlands.
The start of this Treetop Challenge packs a punch with a colossal 323-metre zip thrill before you’ve even tackled the high-rise challenges. Your reward? A whopping 45-metre-high, 426-metre-long flight back down to earth.
That’s not all though! Get out and about exploring the forest on two wheels. The park is home to Britain’s largest off-road cycle network. Bring the bikes and tackle some of the trails which are ideal for families and mixed abilities.
If all this activity gives you an appetite, then there’s a café to grab some hot food and drink, not to mention the cakes….
There’s also an impressive Lodge Forest Visitor Centre with live CCTV viewing so you can get up close to a wide range of wildlife, and a red squirrel hide within easy strolling distance.
If you’re thinking you’re going to need more than one day to enjoy all this fabulous park has to offer then pack your sleeping bag and tent – there’s a campsite if you fancy staying longer.
