Killiecrankie based Highland Fling Bungee operate the 'Soldiers Leap Zip Wire' during our event. The zip wire starts some 70 feet up in the trees on the steep bank above the arena field. The first 50 yards passes through the tree canopy before bursting out above the battlefield and ending some 175 yards later next to the Claverhouse Stone.
