Tree Top Trials is the newest part of the adventure at Craufurdland Estate. Probably…. the best Tree Top Highwire Adventure obstacle course experience in Scotland. It is a family orientated course with children as young as 5 years old able to participate. This project has been partly funded by Ayrshire Leader.

Tree Top Trials obstacle course is set at varying heights above the ground that is sure to challenge and delight the hardened thrill-seeker,  inspiring and rewarding the carefully cautious, whilst enjoying awsome scenery. Have an adventure in our trees come rain or shine.

Tree Top Trials ideal for families, individuals, hen and stag groups, team-building exercises, school & youth groups and adventure parties for all age groups.

Challenge your sense of adventure with over 40 exciting high wire obstacles, some up to 50ft high!

You’ll find yourself tackling exhilarating and challenging obstacles such as wind chimes, moving vines, fisherman’s rope bridge, tree top zipline, and of course the terryfying Tarzan swing.

Be assured safety is always at the forefront of our minds that’s why we use a continuous belay system that ensures you make it safely back to solid ground with nothing but happy memories and that wonderful feeling of achievement.

Disgusted what I found when walking round the lochan to check the depth of ice for fishing purposes. If you recognise any of the litter, dog shit or vandalism in these photos please do not return to Craufurdland. Despite numerous signs asking you not to go round the water as it is for anglers only, huge numbers ignored this and have left their mark. This is a part of our business on the estate, and helps us pay for maintenance of the estate which many enjoy. Thanks to those who did this for making a difficult time worse. I hope you are ashamed of yourself. Simon. P.S. To be clear to anyone wanting to comment. The Laird's Table does not sell cans, plastic bottles or chocolate bars. We have numerous bins available for litter etc at the carpark, and the wee bins for fishermen are not emptied when the Fishery is closed.
