WHAT IS IT?
One of the more traditional activities and still as much fun as ever. Dangling yourself over a 90 foot drop with nothing more than a bit of rope to hang onto is always guaranteed to get the blood pumping.
We run a number of charity abseil events throughout the year, including the Forth Rail Bridge, Dundee University Tower building and a variety of other buildings, lighthouses and bridges. Some are abseiling down walls and others are what we call freefall abseils, just dangling away in mid air.
Contact us for details on dates and locations.
GROUPS & EVENTS
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.
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.
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.
(prices may vary for charity events)
Some popular destinations are Birnam quarry and Drumglas. All equipment supplied. If 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.
I had a stupendous day on Saturday, thank you and your team in the caravan so much for all your kindness and cups of tea for my drying mouth, all that excitement. Freespirits were really kind and friendly, called me by name all the time, how do they do it, such personal attention makes you feel like one of them. Had a lovely finish to the day too, dinner with a new driving friend. I will be showing the photos for many years yet.
