Forth Road Bridge Highlines
Spanning the Firth of Forth, the Forth Road Bridge is a feat of remarkable engineering and was the longest suspension bridge in the world outside the United States when it opened in 1964. The Prince's Trust has been given exclusive access to allow thrill seekers the chance to experience the exhilaration of abseiling from one of the iconic towers before zipping high above the water to dry land.
Take part in this unique challenge, if you dare...!
Have a head for heights?
Take on the dual challenge of a 100-meter abseil, followed by a 450-meter zip line installed below the bridge.
Registration fee: £100

Feel the rush of riding across the famous Firth of Forth

Why take on a challenge for The Prince's Trust?
By joining #TeamPrincesTrust you will be helping young people in Scotland to fulfil their potential and transform their lives.
We support 11-30 year olds, many of whom are in or leaving care and facing issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The courses offered by The Trust give young people new experiences and confidence, the chance to learn new skills and the practical and financial support needed to develop self-esteem. Three in four young people supported by The Prince's Trust move into work, education or training.
