Abseiling PDF Print E-mail

abseil from 4th rail bridgeOne of the more traditional activities but still one of the favorites. Walking backward off a cliff is always guaranteed to get the blood pumping. Walking forward off a cliff is guaranteed to freeze it. Freespirits specialize in different methods of abseiling, including walking, running, jumping and running down facing downwards.

We help run a few major charity abseils a year from the Forth rail bridge in Edinburgh. The abseil is 95feet and the money goes to the chest, heart and stroke foundation, Scotland.  If you would like to take part just get in touch with us or the foundation directly.

We run many different sessions through the year all around Scotland from light houses to bridges and stadiums.  Some are straight hanging drops where you don't hit off anything, some where you spring away from cliff faces and others more flying fox style where you soar through the air.

Individuals and small parties can be taken on any number of our rock faces throughout Scotland. If you are booking for an individual group we need to have at least 4 people. If your group size is less than that just give us a bell for information about tagging on to another session. For individual group bookings the heights of the cliffs range from 50 to 80 feet. Some popular destinations are Birnam quarry and Drumglas. All equpiment supplied.

abseil from 4th rail bridgeIf there are any sites that you would like us to run an abseil day from get in touch and we can organise a safety assessment of the site.

What Experience is Needed?

You have an experienced guide to take you abseiling, we can take beginners to experienced rock climbers. Tell us about your experience if you have any and we can tell you about the different sites we can run.

How old do you need to be?

We take people abseiling from 8 years old and we don't have an upper age limit.
