Go Wild: Fling yourself off a bridge in Cairngorms
With your toes hanging over the edge, close your eyes and let yourself fall forward.
Killiecrankie’s Highland Fling Bungee is one of the most iconic bungee jump location in the whole of the UK. Suspended 40 metres above the River Garry, you’ll be safely harnessed up before you take the plunge and step off Garry Bridge, free falling at over 50 miles per hour and springing back up again. Pure heart-thumping bliss, this is what pushing yourself to the limit looks like!
