Please note : Our 2020/21 events may be subject to change, due to the ongoing situation with coronavirus. To keep you safe, we are continuing to review all our upcoming events to ensure they comply with the Scottish Government’s latest official guidance. We’ll let you know about any changes as soon as we can.
We need your support more than ever right now, and by signing up for an event – whether it’s a virtual challenge or an in-person event – you’re doing something amazing. You’re helping us to make sure no one has to recover alone when they return home from hospital. Thank you.
165ft Abseil from Scotland's best man made wonder!
SAS-style free-fall onto the beach below
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, we have had to cancel the 2020 Forth Bridge Abseil events. We worked really hard with our event partners to find a way to make the event safe for you, but sadly right now it’s just not possible to deliver the fun, adrenaline-filled event that you have come to know and love.
Next year, the Forth Bridge Abseil will be taking a break as some exciting new developments for the bridge are unveiled. We can’t wait to welcome you back in 2022 when we’ll be relaunching a bigger, better and more incredible Abseil than ever before!
Fill out the form below to register your interest in the Forth Bridge Abseil, and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible once new event details are confirmed. Thank you for your support!
This exhilarating and unique challenge allows you to abseil (free-fall style, like the S.A.S.!) from the iconic Forth Rail Bridge – Scotland’s Best Loved Landmark, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a 165ft drop with a soft landing on the golden sandy beach below, set in the picturesque village of South Queenferry – the ultimate abseil experience!
We ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £185 for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland, but the sky’s the limit! You pay just £21 of that to register, with the remainder payable on the day (A post dated cheque for one month after the event can be given on the day, giving you another month to collect additional sponsorship money/donations). You can, of course, use an online fundraising page to raise sponsorship, and your local fundraising advisor will be there every step of the way to help you meet and beat your fundraising target!
Our amazing supporters have, to date, raised over £3million for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland by taking part in this truly inspiring event! You can continue to help the 1 in 5 family members, friends and colleagues living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke today. Register now to take part in the Forth Bridge Abseil on Sunday 14th June or Sunday 11th October 2020 and help us care for the half a million people suffering from chest, heart and stroke conditions in Scotland.
Find out how the money raised at the Ultimate Abseil makes a huge difference to the lives of those in Scotland affected by chest, heart & stroke conditions – have a look at our ‘Abseil for a Reason’ fact-sheet.
