Welcome to Treetop Trials

Treetop Trials is the newest part of the adventure at Craufurdland Estate. Probably the best Treetop 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.

Have fun in our trees come rain or shine. This is the ideal outdoor activity experience for those looking for a pure adrenaline rush, fabulous workout, lots of fresh air, fun  AND awesome scenery.

Treetop trials is ideal for families, individuals, hen and stag groups, corporate team building, school & youth groups and adventure parties for all age groups. Safety is always at the forefront of our minds therefore we use a continuous belay system which is easy and simple for all users. You simply slide the safety line from one off the obstacle to the next along the safety wire, no need to click on and click off between activities.
