Nevis Range High Wire Adventure Course


High Wire Adventure at Nevis Range is a series of high ropes courses built on poles and in trees at the edge of Leanachan forest. . Tackle the Barn Owl, Red Fox and Wildcat before testing your nerves on the Swoop. There’s even the smaller Squirrel course for little adventurers. It’s fun and challenging for kids and grown-ups and absolutely no experience necessary. High Wire Adventure is open spring – autumn and closed in winter.

 Suitable for all abilities

  • Squirrel - 1.5m off the ground, this course is built on poles and involves 14 cute obstacles. Ideal for small children as well as adults who like to keep their feet near to the ground - includes Swoop (min height 120cm)
  • Barn Owl - perched 4.5m - 5m directly above Squirrel, Barn Owl has 14 more challenging obstacles - includes Swoop (min height 135 cm)
  • Swoop - the 'power fan' - climb to 8m and then whizz back to ground level
  • Red Fox - cunningly venturing into Leanachan forest, this clever course starts with a short zip, and the 15 obstacles are built high into the trees (min height 145cm)
  • Wildcat - you'll need to be agile to complete the hardest of the courses, these 14 obstacles will challenge you to the limit, and a 100m zip wire, will whizz you out of the forest back to the base (min height 145cm)
