Very interesting layout. Taken first to shed and had a very informative talk about the deer - two stags and nine females just outside the window. Then a talk about barn owls and one was brought in to view. Experienced t flying about the room. Also can recommend the cafe food. Bacon buns were delicious.

We went on a Mountain Safari and travelled 1hr 40 mins to get there, I booked months in advance and 2 days before we were 'asked' to change the time, I said we were only in Scotland for a couple of days and had things planned but they didn't seem very bothered . (We found out since that they took... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you did not have a positive experience out on Safari. We take hundreds of customers out on Safari that use Tesco vouchers, how a customer pays has absolutely no bearing on their importance to us, this certainly would not have been the reason that...

We rarely return to a place again but this is a favourite. We took a forest safari this time and it was a super little trip that we wished was longer. Our guide John was knowledgeable and a lovely chap. The café serves good food and the shop sells nice quality items. I'm sure we will return again!

We, family of 4 (36, 35, 6 and 3) enjoyed our morning mountain safari with Andy. Didn't see a lot of animals but that was well compensated by the magnificent views. The stop at the mountain cabin was enjoyed by all. Be sure to try out the great food at your place of departure!

My boyfriend and I spent the entire day here and had a great time. The red deer centre is really informative and feeding the stag was one of the highlights of our holiday. We then spent a very pleasant hour (or I did) perusing the gift shop, had a lovely lunch and then went on a safari where we were... More
