Forth Bridge Abseil

The Ultimate Forth Bridge Abseil Experience

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!

What we ask of you

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!

Register for 2020

Abseil For a Reason

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.
