Where is the Highland Fling Bungee Located?

The company is managed from the Killiecrankie Visitor Centre, 3 miles from Pitlochry. The jump location is at the Garry bridge where a specially constructed platform sits 40m above the Garry River. Car parking is available at the Killiecrankie visitor centre and spectators are welcomed.

There is, however, also another bungee jump that you can do not far from the heart of Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow. Leaping from the top of one of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, you can bungee jump 50m from the top of the Titan Crane.

Highland Fling Bungee is managed by experts in the field and is very safe, however, you must be aware that there are always risks in these kinds of activities. If you are pregnant, unfortunately,  you won’t be able to take part this time.

What Type of Bungee Jump Can I Do?

A bungee jump in Scotland is a challenge like no other. Taking the leap quite literally into the most beautiful scenery that Scotland has to offer. This incredible adrenaline experience will leave your heart thumping and longing for more. You can choose from three types of bungee jump here in Killiecrankie, either tandem, solo or nighttime.

This 40m free fall will cost £79pp and if you wish to do a second jump on the same day it will cost £30pp.

If you haven’t booked, Highland Fling Bungee will do their best to accommodate walk-ins, however, during busy periods this may not always be possible.

 

Important Information on Bungee Jumping

The maximum weight is 100kg and the harness will fit a waist size of 40cm-125cm. The minimum age for jumping is 14 years old and the maximum is 114, however, over 65’s require a doctor’s letter.

Make sure you are wearing sensible clothing and footwear, ie. nothing that can fall off or will be uncomfortable with a harness on. Once you have jumped you will be winched back up to the platform, a process that we discuss this in further detail below.

If you want to purchase some memorabilia to show off to everyone that you did a bungee jump, you can purchase a £15 t-shirt, the photos of your experience for £25pp or even a three-camera edited video for £35pp.

Tandem Bungee Jump

If you are wanting to share this experience with a loved one, how about taking the leap together on a tandem bungee jump. This type of bungee jump can only be booked at the Killiecrankie jump centre and must be booked over the phone. You can book your tandem bungee by calling Highland Fling Bungee on the contact details listed below.

The maximum combined weight allowed for this jump is 180kg and the maximum weight difference of both jumpers is 35kg. The cost for a tandem bungee experience is £179 for both people on the tandem. The price for memorabilia is the same as for a single bungee, however, the price is per tandem.

 

Night-time Bungee Jump

Highland Fling Bungee is Europe’s first and only blackout bungee jump! Imagine the adrenaline you will feel jumping off a 40m platform into complete darkness with no idea of when the free fall will end? This is an experience you will not want to miss out on so make sure you pre-book to guarantee your space. Night jumps run from October through to march each year and will run with a group of 4 or more jumpers.

If no one else is brave enough to join you on this experience of a lifetime, get in touch with Highland Fling Bungee anyway and they will discuss convenient times with you as to when they will be running night jumps. At £85pp this is a ince in a lifetime experience that will most likely have you coming back for more. You can book your night jump by phone on 0345 366 5844.

 

Charity and Fundraising Bungee Jumps

All year round Highland Fling Bungee offers charity and fundraising bungee jumps. What a way to tick off an amazing bucket list activity whilst raising money for charity. Charity jumps can take place at both the Titan Crane jump site and the Killiecrankie jump site and groups of jumpers can be up to 100. This experience takes place all year round at Killiecrankie and during May-September at Titan Crane. For groups of 20+, other dates can be requested.

Highland Fling Bridge Swinging in Scotland

The newest addition to Highland Fling is the bridge swing, releasing you from above and dropping a 15m free fall into the beautiful scenery above the River Garry. This experience has been purpose-built and is only available at the Killiecrankie location in Perthshire, the same bridge where the bungee jumping takes place.

The minimum age for the swing is 10 years old and the maximum age being 110 with over 65’s requiring a doctor’s letter. The maximum weight limit is 120kg and the waist harness will fit a waist size of 40cm to 125cm.

 

 

 

You will be dressed in a full-body harness and released from above, free-falling for 15m before the rope takes the slack and accelerates you through nature, underneath the bungee jump platform. You will be winched back to where you started when the swing is over. How does that sound for an adventure-packed experience?!

You can book the swing online and Highland Fling is open for swing all year round. Check the booking times for availability.

The cost for a swing is £69pp and for a second jump by the same person on the same day it is an additional £30pp. Allow 1 hour for this thrilling experience and at the end you can decide if you want to purchase the memorabilia in the shop.

 

 

Killiecrankie Zip Park

The Killie Zip is new to Highland Fling in 2021 and what an experience it is. Initially you will climb up a 20ft wooden ladder up the tree to get to your first zip line. There is a large circuit of 9 lines zipping through the forest and across the River Garry at a heigh of up to 35ft. We would advise wearing comfortable clothing for this activity and allow 1.5 hours for the experience. The location of the zips is around 100 years from Garry Bridge where the bungee and highland swing take place. Spectators can watch from below as you whizz around the valley. It is advised to book in advance to ensure there is availability for the activity you want to do.

This is a really fun experience to see the beautiful views of Killiecrankie, even if you get jelly legs when you’re up high, the view is so worth it.

Quad Biking

The quad biking experience is located just outside of Pitlochry and is open to treks 7 days a week. We would recommend that you wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, your qualified quad guide will provide you with a helmet and eye protection for your 1 hour tour around the hills.

This is a fantastic experience, you will start off warming up around some easier trails before working up to some a little more challenging. You don’t need to have experience of riding a quad bike before as your guide will control the gears on your bike when it comes to starting and stopping.

We loved the views whilst driving around the trek and you can even stop at the top for a photo opportunity. Don’t get tpp distracted by the views though or you might crash your quad bike.

 

Is This Bungee Jump a Good Gift Experience?

If you are looking for present ideas, how about going for a gift experience over a material item. Highland Bungee Fling sells experience gift cards that are valid for 12 months and can be used at their Killicrankie or Clydebank jump sites. When you purchase a gift card, bear in mind that the Titan Crane bungee jump is only open from May-September. The Killicrankie jump site is open all year round.

A range of vouchers can be purchased on Highland Fling Bungee’s website. You can choose to purchase a monetary voucher card that can be used towards a choice of adventures and a gift card for a specific experience.

Things to Know Before You Go

Your pockets must be empty before you leave the visitor centre and all jewelry must be removed. If you need to, you can leave your belongings in the office and collect them after your jump.

If you have a chest strap for your go pro, you can choose to wear this however it will be your own responsibility to ensure it strapped on tightly.

 

What to expect when you arrive at Highland Fling Bungee

When you arrive at Highland Bungee Fling and sign in, you will be asked to read a sign on the back wall and sign a disclaimer form on the iPad to agree that you are happy with the information you have been given.

You will be supported to step into a harness and this will be all tightened for you. After this, you will be weighed and your weight will be written down on your right hand. This is to ensure that the correct ropes are used for your jump.

On your left hand, you will be given another number and this is your photo and video number.

You will then head to the jump point by minibus with the rest of your group, which will take 5 minutes along the road to the Garry Bridge. Spectators will need to make their own way there and the best viewpoint is from the bottom of the hill.

There are so many adventurous activities to choose from at Highland Fling Bungee.

 

Arriving at the Bungee Jump Site

For those jumping, you will be asked to climb up a ladder at the side of the bridge one by one. At this point, you will be clipped onto a harness as you climb up. When the whole group reaches the top, you will be escorted along the bridge to the jump site.

If you are afraid of heights, you may start to get jelly legs at this point, don’t worry you will get to sit down soon. When you reach the platform, the group will split in two and be asked to sit on either side. There are 3 HD cameras filming this whole experience for you, so make sure you keep smiling!

Whilst you are sitting there, the staff will attach the leg equipment to you which will hold both of your legs together. They will also talk you through how to make your jump as comfortable as possible. By keeping your head up and looking forward to the mountain, hands out to the side and shoulders back your body should tilt forward. This should stop you from being tempted by a foot first jump which would be a lot more uncomfortable fall.

There will be upbeat music on, pumping you up for what lies before you.

When your name is called forward, you will be clipped onto the very thick bungee rope, at this point, I recommend not looking down. If you watch our YouTube video you will see how much I avoided looking down! The staff will take a short video asking you your name and what you are there for and a few photos will be taken before your jump.

Our Experience

I know this doesn’t make it any easier but if you are sitting on the fence about giving bungee jumping a go, I will tell you a little bit about our experience. I was terrified, we were both sitting on the top platform terrified. Unable to tell if we were shivering with the cold or really shaking with fear. The staff were kind and friendly, however, which will instantly you put at ease.

This was an experience we couldn’t pass on and one that we would 100% do again. If anything it has got us desperate for another adrenaline rush like that in the near future! You will be in safe hands with Highland Fling Bungee and we recommend you take the leap and book this incredible experience in the heart of Scotland.

These include where you will be staying around the Heart 200, what you will need to pack and the dreaded issue of travel insurance. All of this is discussed below.

What to Pack for a Trip to Scotland

When it comes to packing for a trip to Scotland there is one item of clothing that you are going to need all year round: a waterproof. It rains in Scotland on average 250 days a year, meaning that during your 5-day Heart 200 road trip you will probably experience at least a drizzle of rain. Due to this, the number one item on any Scotland packing list is a good waterproof jacket.

As for the rest of the year, the temperature in Scotland and the central heartlands is reasonably mild for most of the year. During the winter months, you will most likely experience snow, however, temperatures usually sit around freezing, so it is not too cold. For your reference, the average temperatures in Scotland are listed below during each season.

 

Spring (March, April, May) – 5-10 degrees C

Summer (June, July, August) – 15 degrees C

Autumn (September, October, November) – 5-10 degrees C

Winter (December, January, February) – 0-5 degrees C

 

As you can see, the weather never really gets above the teens, with anything over 25 degrees C considered a heatwave. The best way to pack for your trip to the highlands is with layers that can be added and removed as you need them. You will definitely need a hat and gloves during the colder months and will most likely need sunscreen to protect you on the long days in the open.

 

For our full list of items that we pack no matter where we go in the world, check out our full packing guides over here.

 

Given the beautiful sights and scenery that you are no doubt going to see around Scotland, we highly recommend packing a good camera for your trip. If you want to read more about the cameras we use and why we love them, check out the link below.

What is the Best Travel Insurance for Scotland

I know travel insurance is the least enjoyable thing to purchase and look at when you’re planning a trip, however you wouldn’t want to be without it in the event that something happened. The extortionate medical bills could ruin your trip if you are not covered.

To ensure you have a stress-free trip with no worries about potential medical bills, make sure you cover yourself when you travel. We can recommend using World Nomads, a backpacker friendly and cheap insurance company that provides good coverage and support.
