For anyone who has ever said, “Oh, I can’t possibly do that,” a high ropes adventure in the Scottish Highlands will boost your confidence and prove to be a rewarding, exciting day out. Imagine conquering a challenge, building a team, and learning something new out in the Highland wilderness, breathtaking scenery all around you. You are sure to have fun and a day to remember when you take on a high ropes course here in the Highlands.
High ropes courses come with a wide variety of settings, skill levels, and challenges. They generally require a group of three or more people to complete the activities set for you. It’s all about problem-solving and meeting a challenge head on. Activities often include things like building a tower while you are standing on top of it, rising as it does; swinging high above the ground on a giant swing; stepping off a platform and flying on a zip line; climbing a pole; climbing a wall; abseiling from a tower, and the like. The good news is, you will receive expert instruction and be properly kitted out with safety gear, including helmets and harnesses. Standing on the ground, you may experience a feeling of disbelief, believing that the task set before you is just not possible. Soon, however, you will find that you have risen to the challenge (possibly literally!) and achieved what you thought was impossible. Imagine the feeling of confidence!
