    I'm 59 and took Aleyna, my 14 year old granddaughter. It's easy to book an hour on line and we had great fun. Staff spend 5 minutes or so getting you kitted up and instructed and then you're free to g...  more »

  • Amazing value and facilities. Easily worth the drive to get to. The staff aren't intrusive like they often re at climbing centres either. The potential for kids parties is good but the main strength lies with the sheer number of options for bouldering, top roping and leading. You'll need a 60m rope to lead the tallest wall but mostly a 50m rope will suffice. There's a good range of difficulty and the main area is pleasant to be in and full of light. One caveat is that there aren't a lot of auto belays outside of the kids area so lone climbers may be mainly limited to bouldering.
  • Well worth every penny clip and climb for my daughters birthday. Staff were brilliant and facilities were amazing. Great experience will definitely go back. Suitable for a wide age range.
  • An amazing place, and awe inspiring space. Tremendous range of facilities for all ages and skills. Out in the country, but easy to get to with great parking. Café and shop make this a great destination.
  • Huge wall, very tall and diverse. Everything in excellent condition. Staff is super helpful.
  • Amazing climbing gym when you are looking for some high leads. There is a limited number of top-rope setups and solo-belay stations, which tend to be quite busy. Plenty of lead up to 25m long. It doesn't get too busy there even during peak hours and the spatious design means it won't feel crammed, even during busy times. Some bouldering is nice for a warm-up but won't keep hardcore boulderers busy for too long. There is a great kids area called "Clip'n'Çlimb", an on-site café, fitness centre and outdoor store just in case you run out of chalk.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
