As he zoomed down a 150ft high zip wire – stunned Colin got the surprise of his life

Stunned Colin Nicholson got the surprise of his life as he zoomed down a 150ft high zip wire – his partner Zac was waiting at the bottom with a “Will you marry me?” sign.

So he decided to return to the location of their first date – Go Ape in Aberfoyle, Stirlingshire – and pop the question.

He organised a trip to the activity centre last month, where Colin, an accounts manager, flew down the final zip wire to find a large ‘Will you marry me?’ sign and Zac down on one knee.

The couple first met on Facebook through mutual friends and live together in Johnstone, Renfrewshire.

Zac, a customer service adviser, said:  “We were trying to think of somewhere unusual for our first date and thought it would be great to go to Go Ape.

“We’d both been before and thought it’d be a place where we could have fun and not take ourselves too seriously.

“We’d been talking about getting engaged for a few months and had picked out some rings; so when it came to deciding where to propose, I thought Go Ape would be perfect.”

Colin said: “We were about to go on the last zip wire and I knew something was strange as Zac was insisting that I went last.

“At about half way along the zip I could see a huge sign and Zac down on one knee and I immediately clicked what was happening.

“I was completely shocked and a little embarrassed as there were so many people all clapping and cheering.

“We love going hill walking and doing outdoor activities, so it was an amazing proposal which really summed-up our relationship.”
