Falkirk Wheel Abseil

Feel on top of the world and abseil off the iconic Falkirk Wheel to support Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

Abseil 100ft off the world’s first, and only, rotating boat lift, and raise crucial funds for cats and dogs in need. You’ll enjoy spectacular views from the top of the wheel and an adrenaline rush as you abseil down.

Why take part?

Embark on a thrilling adventure and make a real difference for the cats and dogs in our care! By taking part, you’ll not only experience the rush of descending 100ft from the iconic Falkirk Wheel, but you’ll also be allowing us to continue our vital mission.

We give our all to protect loving homes, find loving homes and run a loving home for dogs and cats in East and Central Scotland. Our goal is to support pets and their people in whatever way is best for them at the time. And to keep loving homes whole.

By getting involved in this challenge, you can help us to continue this important work and keep more pets in loving homes, where they belong.
