Forth Bridge Abseil - Sunday 8th October 2023

Participants at the Forth Bridge Abseil

The ultimate Forth Bridge Abseil experience is here. An exhilarating and unique challenge which allows you to abseil (free-fall style, like the S.A.S.!) from the iconic Forth Bridge – Scotland’s best loved landmark, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a 165ft drop with a soft landing on the golden sandy beach below, set in the picturesque village of South Queensferry – the ultimate abseil experience!
