Welcome to EICA:Ratho

Located on the outskirts of Edinburgh in Ratho, the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA) makes it easy to live life’s adventure. EICA is Europe’s largest indoor climbing centre and alongside world-class climbing walls, features a bouldering room and a gym overlooking the main quarry. 

It’s easy to get to the EICA via car or even bicycle if you travel via the Union Canal. Regardless of whether you love to climb or hit the gym, we look forward to welcoming you to EICA. 

Ratho is also home to one of our three soft play venues across Edinburgh.  Find out more about Scrambles Soft Play at EICA Ratho.
