2000 Swings and counting

The Highland Swing is now 16 months old and has recently clocked up 2000 swings!  Since it’s official opening in September 2017 the swing has been growing in popularity as we hoped.  The initial swing was done by Roddy Garden who managed to miraculously continue playing the bagpipes while dropping at speeds of up to 70mph.

Many opt out of the bungee in exchange for what they believe will be the easy option.  That’s until we roll back that platform and you are left hanging suspended over the River Garry from 40m.  Then it’s 321 or as some prefer the surprise option, then you freefall into a giant arch.

It looks like 2019 is going to be another big year for The Highland Swing and we are looking forward to it!

Bungee jumping to the rescue for engaged couple

On Sunday 9th July 2017 adrenaline junkie Matthew Stewart had planned to propose to his partner Emily after their planned skydive.  Unfortunately due to the bad weather the skydive was cancelled last minute and Matthew needed a plan B. Luckily for him Highland Fling Bungee were on call to save the day.  After realising that the dream was still alive they jumped in the car and headed north to Killiecrankie.
On arrival at the visitor centre the they checked in while the rest of their families quietly headed down to the bridge to get the giant sign they had made ready which said “Will you marry me?”.  They planned on putting this up just after the jump so Emily could read it while they were being winched back up.
Tandem Bungee Engagement
Once Matthew and Emily arrived at the bridge we strapped them up ready for the tandem bungee jump.  Matthew had discreetly and very carefully left the engagement ring with the staff during the jump and planned to propose once they had both feet back on the jump deck. Once there Matthew got down on one knee and popped the question to Emily to which she replied with no hesitation “YES” much to the delight of Matthew, Emily, the family and the staff.
Another happy story to add to our bungee timeline and we hope there will be many more to come.
