Go Ape is set to open a brand new outdoor adventure course at Dalkeith Country Park.

Site manager Stewart Deards said: “We’re really excited to be the first Scottish site to bring Treetop Adventures to under tens.

“Dalkeith Country Park is the perfect place for a family day out. There’s a high ropes adventure for every age (and skill level) with trapezes, twisty crossing and loads of breath-taking zips.

“Then there’s acres of parkland to explore, a beautiful palace and an awesome adventure play park for kids.

​“Being so close to Edinburgh, it is also ideally located with easy and affordable parking. We’re delighted to be bringing another Go Ape to Scotland and can’t wait to start sharing our adventures.”

​Stephen Begg, events and activities manager at Dalkeith Country Park, added: “We are delighted to welcome Go Ape to Dalkeith Country Park this summer.

It’s an exciting addition to our offer in the Park and we believe it will make us the perfect destination for a full and completely fun-packed family day out for all ages.”
