Scale the heights when you go climbing in Stirlingshire! We are offering beginners the perfect session to get climbing at this outdoor centre near Gartmore. It’s great value for money and everything you need to climb (and abseil back down again!) is included.
Sitting pretty right on the edge of the Trossachs National Park you’ll find this farm estate that is home to this activity centre and a holiday park. It’s just west of Stirlingshire and offers a huge range of things to do.
You’re going to be here to climb. The centre has a purpose-built climbing tower with various routes of varying levels of difficulty to climb. We have to admit when you first stand at the bottom it looks a long way up to the top but you’ll be surprised how high you can climb when you put your mind to it.
Helping you with your first foray into sport climbing at this Stirlingshire venue is Ross the Boss and his team of instructors. They’re all great fun with all the banter and really good at spurring you on too. Safety is of course paramount so there’s always a briefing before you climb and you’ll be shown how to get into your harness and how to adjust it correctly.
So there you are on the climbing wall. You’re making good progress using your hands and feet to reach for the holds. As you near the top of the wall you realise that once you’re there you have to come back down. That’s when you get to abseil. It takes a bit of guts to begin with but once you’re into the rhythm it feels really good.
Having conquered the wall there should be time for you to take on one last climbing challenge. This Gartmore centre boasts a very special climbing tree. Yep it’s an actual pine tree with actual climbing holds fitted to the trunk. Hold your nerve for this one as the higher you climb the better the views of the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond are!
Start climbing in Stirlingshire at this centre near Gartmore and we’re sure you’ll be hooked on the sport. All the gear you need is included in the price of the voucher and the basecamp has free tea and coffee and a comfy seating area – ideal for sitting back and reflecting on the time you climbed right up a tree!
