Fact: the biggest of its kind in Europe. The climbing arena is just massive. Very professional and friendly staff. Five stars.

“Climbers and kids”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The EICA at Ratho is a professional standard climbing centre offering several different climbing options. It is popular too for older children's parties. It is a bit of a drive out to the west of Edinburgh, best accessed by car.

“Ariel Assault was quite a challenge!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This was my first visit to the EICA and I was very impressed. I am not a climber but the facilities looked great.

I had booked my 10 year old in for the Ariel Assault, he was a little scared to begin with as unsure what to do but the staff helped him get past the first tricky bit and then he really enjoyed it! I was very proud of him as the assault course is 100 feet in the air and something I would be far too scared to do!

I had a quick look at the other facilities which all looked really good too!

“Only looking”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We were in the area and were interested to see what this place was like. We had a short break in the cafe and as we drank our smoothies we saw people doing amazing things on the climbing walls of the former quarry.
If only I was fitter, braver, maybe 6 stone lighter and not afraid of heights I would give it a go. But I'm not so I will have to remain an impressed spectator.
It is a remarkable place to visit and watch real heroes climb.
