Forth Rail Bridge Abseil

About Forth Rail Bridge Abseil

Join our band of intrepid supporters and complete a 165ft freefall abseil from this world famous attraction to raise funds for Scotland's animal welfare charity.

Ensuring your safety
A team of highly skilled instructors will ensure you are equipped with all you need to make your abseil as safe and enjoyable as possible.

On the day, you can control the speed of your descent. Either slowly sliding down the rope and taking in the stunning view or whooshing down commando fashion to the cheers of the crowd below. Your speed can also be regulated to slow you down if the instructors feel you are going a little too fast.
