TreeZone Loch Lomond

Activity Overview

What You Can Expect At TreeZone Loch Lomond

Zip wires, balance beams, hanging platforms, tight-ropes, scramble nets, white knuckle bridges & tree to tree zip wires, set in the awesome Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park – an unforgettable high ropes activity for your day out!

The TreeZone Treecreeper Course

Everyone starts at the TreeZone Fortress venturing out onto The TreeCreeper first, negotiating obstacles up to five metres off the ground and finishing with a great llittle zip line to round things off. This course is suitable for those aged at least 7 years old and 1.1m tall.  For those under 1.3m tall, they can have another shot on the TreeCreeper Course, while the bigger and braver amongst you can graduate to the Buzzard Course.

The Buzzard Course

This is the TreeCreeper’s big brother and rises to an airy fifteen metres high, and will test your bravery as well as your ability.  Bigger spans, wobblier bridges, wider gaps and a hanging zip wire will all challenge you as you climb steadily higher. With names like the Pig Tails, Church Organ and Skipping Ropes don’t let the Buzzard’s defences lull you into a false sense of security.

As you climb onwards and upwards, the tests get meaner until you’re just one tightrope walk away from the Buzzard’s Nest.  But that’s not all! The best way back down to the ground is via the exhilarating 60 metre, Buzzard Zip Wire (about 5 double-decker bus lengths).  Woohoo!!

Need to chat to someone?

It’s a very good idea to as we can’t guarantee a space for you unless you have a booking.  If you turn up on the day and we have space then that’s fine too, but we’d hate for you to be disappointed if we were full.

The simplest way to book is online.  Alternatively you can pop into the cabin with your payment or call us with your credit/debit card details.  Please note that we do not take provisional bookings and full payment will be required at the time of booking.

That is a little bit of a “How long is a piece of string” question!  We find that most people take between 1 and 1.5 hours although this can vary considerably depending on how brave and strong you’re feeling on the day and also how busy it is.

You start with one lap on the short course, followed by one lap of the long course if you are tall enough and feeling brave.  Otherwise you can take a 2nd lap of the short course instead.

We are lucky to have Red Squirrels, Otters and Ospreys as neighbours, as well as smaller birds. Keep your eye out and you may catch a glimpse of all kinds of nature while you’re up there. Treezone gives unique, spectacular views of the Cairngorm Mountains and Loch Lomond areas.

Treezone is year-round fun and operates in nearly all weathers!

High winds, thunderstorms or heavy snow in the trees may force us to close the course for safety reasons. Contact us before you leave home if the weather is looking a little too ‘interesting’.

You will be refunded or given the option to re-schedule if we need to close the course due to weather.

Cameras can be taken with you as long as they are secure so you cannot drop them from the course (we don’t want them to break, or perhaps land on someone’s head!). Other items should be stored safely in a zipped pocket, in one of our small free lockers in the cabin or left in the car or with a spectator.

We do not accept responsibility for your belongings while you are here.

Dress for a couple of hours in the great outdoors and be aware that the weather can change pretty quickly.   You will be wearing a harness and wobbling about above lots of spectators so skirts, kilts, dresses and swimwear are not appropriate.

Trainers or walking boots are the best bet for your feet. Sandals, flip-flops, high heels or barefoot are not suitable. We recommend tying long hair back and removing jewellery before arriving.

Medical Conditions

We are not able to give medical advice so we recommend checking with your doctor before you book.

I live with a disability. Will I still be able to take part?”

That depends a lot on the type and severity of the disability you live with.  We will always try our best to accommodate people and so far we have had an amazing variety of people who have successfully participated in many of our activities. However, if you are at all unsure, it is best to get in touch before coming along, to discuss things in more detail.

TreeZone Treetop Adventures

We have some more information for you at our Aviemore and Loch Lomond courses, and if you want to come and have a look around before you book to get a clearer idea of what TreeZone entails, then pop in and we’ll happily show you around and discuss your needs.

Alternatively, contact us to chat with us.

You will need to be fairly fit and healthy with a reasonable level of mobility.  If you struggle on the shorter courses, it may be a good idea to have a second lap of that instead of progressing onto the big courses, which are longer, harder and higher.

If you slip off an obstacle, our safety system will catch you. After a quick giggle you should be able to clamber back onto the course. If you are having a little more trouble, our instructors can come and give you a hand to continue round.

If for any reason you can’t go on and want to return to the ground, our team will assist you. For your safety, it is impossible to leave the course without a Treezone instructor.

Once you are released from the safety system and reach terra firma you cannot rejoin the course. We are unable to make refunds in this situation.

TreeZone always welcomes all feedback.  If you have a complaint you must inform us verbally within 24 hours of your session and in writing within a week of your session for your case to be assessed.  Any complaints made later than this will not be considered for a refund.

  • TreeZone places great emphasis on safety, however there is an element of risk involved.  On arrival for your session everyone taking part must be included on a signed Acknowledgement of Risk stating that you understand the risk, and are fit and able to take part.  Under 18’s must be counter-signed by an Adult.
  • All participants must listen to and follow all the safety instructions given by an instructor, otherwise they may be removed from the course and no refund will be given.
  • We only employ suitably qualified, well trained staff and use only modern, correctly maintained equipment.
  • TreeZone Courses are hazardous by their nature and participants must accept a certain element of risk during their session.  Parents and guardians must also recognise a degree of risk to their children.
  • To ensure everybody’s safety as far as possible, we reserve the right to postpone or cancel TreeZone sessions, as weather or group needs dictate.  If we believe that individuals are placing themselves or others at risk by their actions, we reserve the right to remove the person(s) concerned from the activity.
  • TreeZone is certified by the European Ropes Course Association (ERCA).  This involves an annual inspection of our courses and safety system as well as our risk assessments, operating guidelines and training programme. TreeZone instructors check the course thoroughly at the start of every day and are always on hand to help any participant anywhere on the course.

TreeZone reserves the right to cancel any session at any time. This will usually be due to events outside of our control and for safety reasons.  In the unlikely event of this happening, we will attempt to reschedule the activity. If this is not possible, a full refund will be given.  We do not offer compensation for other costs incurred (for example travel costs).

For bookings of 7 participants or less, cancellations must be made with at least 48 hours’ notice to receive a full refund or a reschedule. Cancellations made with less than 48 hours’ notice (including participants changing their mind on the day or during the session) will not be refunded.

For bookings of 8+ participants, cancellations must be made with at least 14 days’ notice to receive a full refund or a reschedule. Cancellations made with less than 14 days’ notice (including participants changing their mind on the day or during the session) will not be refunded.

Please make sure you arrive on time for your session. If you arrive late, we will try to accommodate you, however this may not be possible, and you will not be refunded.

Please note that once a participant has checked in and is in their climbing harness, we cannot offer a refund if they subsequently decide they don’t want to attempt the course.  Additionally, no refunds will be offered once they have started the course.

Under 12 year olds must have an adult on site for the duration of the session. The adult doesn’t need to participate.

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that all participants are:
– At least 8 years old for Treezone Aviemore, at least 7 years old for Treezone Loch Lomond.
– At least 1.1m tall (those under 1.3m will be restricted to the TreeCreeper Course).
– Less than 18st 12lb (120kg).
– Aware of what TreeZone involves and definitely want to take part.
– Sober and free from the influence of any other substances.

TreeZone reserves the right to cancel the session without a refund if it becomes obvious to us that any participants do not meet these requirements or if participants are behaving in a way that we believe may spoil the enjoyment of others.

If you’re looking for something a bit different to do with your work colleagues, whether it’s simply to escape the office environment and have a bit of fun as a team, or to use it as part of a team building activity day, TreeZone is ideal.

Not everyone is a fan of heights, so teamwork is essential if everyone is to make it round the TreeZone course. It provides an ideal opportunity to bond as a team in a fun, yet challenging environment and gives you all something to talk about back at the office for the weeks and months to follow.

If you’re planning to visit the area for a day, TreeZone could fit nicely into your plans. Perhaps a round of TreeZone in the morning to work up an appetite, before picking up some picnic supplies at the Rothiemurchus Farm Shop to take down to Loch an Eilein for a relaxing afternoon. Or perhaps drop in to Lomond shores for some shopping while you send the kids around our Loch Lomond Course.

You could tie in TreeZone with one of the other exciting activities on the Rothiemurchus Estate or at Lomond Shores for a fun packed day.

If you’re a stag or hen group staying in the area, TreeZone provides the ideal opportunity to stay out of the pub for a bit longer, clear the heads from the evening before and work up a thirst or appetite for later on.

It’s challenging enough for you to come away thinking that you will deserve that first thirst-quenching drink of the day, but not so difficult that you’ll be wanting to numb the pain!

We find that children and youths not only enjoy the experience, but they also benefit personally from the challenge. For most children, it could well be their first experience of an aerial activity like this, that challenges them both physically and mentally.

First, they have to make the first steps on to the lower level course, which is still high enough off the ground to raise the pulse rate somewhat. They can then progress to the higher, more challenging course, but only if they want to.

This gradual progression allows them to get used to the idea of being high off the ground in very safe environment, learning how to cope with a bit of fear perhaps, but ultimately coming away with a great sense of achievement and greater self-confidence.

Add to this the fact that they are breathing wonderful fresh-air in a superb location close to nature, and it makes for an extremely worthwhile excursion for young people.

TreeZone is open daily, from Easter to October with the first sessions typically starting at 10:00am. At other times of the year, it will be open at weekends, and holiday periods, like Christmas and New Year or the February half-term holiday.  Up to date availability can be found on the TreeZone Aviemore or Loch Lomond pages.
