  • This place is very good but, no one ever answers the phone. You leave a message, they get back to you, tell you your activity is booked. Woo hoo! Then when you eventually get a human to speak to, they...  read more »
  • I have wanted to do the aerial assault for ages and my lovely family arranged for me to do this as part of my 40th birthday pressie. I manage heights well, so wasn't too scared however this is not for...  read more »
  • I hate to write a bad review about EICA as it is one of my favourite places, but I have been twice in recent weeks and the music and staff have spoilt the experience. I have been climbing here for 11 ...  read more »
  • What a great place... Brought my three kids (ages 5-7) and had a blast on the clip and climb. So many options and a great staff to help. If you get there early, no worries as there is plenty of stuff to watch while you wait and great little cafe as well.
  • I go climbing here the most as it is the closest climbing centre but it is very good. It's run by edinburgh leasure so it has a gym function sweets a cafe changing rooms and tiso outdoor shop. The climbing wall recently got an upgrade auto belay section which is charged seperatly but it looks good. The casual climb is charged all day and you have a range of climbs from bouldering, top roping, lead and auto belays to cater for all levels of experience. It also has an aireal assault course too. The centre also runs courses throughout the year to cater for all levels too. I always try to recommend this location to visitors as it is one of the highest walls in britian I think and one of the largest climbing centres in Europe I think.something like that.
  • The new clip and climb facilities are excellent for novice climbers, allowing an hour taster session without any previous experience. You do need to book as these are very popular. Café closes at 5pm on a Sunday, in case you're a thirsty parent waiting on a session to finish.
  • That's it? So much space so much money and that's it. Feel like there's more space than wall which given its £12 and usually rammed then it's well over priced. Bouldering us either an after thought or the biggest waste of space. Mid grade / easy climbs are very few.
  • Huge climbing centre with some good routes. Holds get a bit grubby as the routes don't get reset often. Great bouldering area. The overhead aerial playground gets a bit annoying while trying to climb. The outside quarry, is an incredible, I'm glad they left some exposed for climbing.
