A great experience in a super setting right in the centre of Scotland. Staff were very pleasant and knowledgable, there was a good selection of food in the cafe and the birds were just fantastic. It is such a privilege to see and be near to these beautiful creatures and also to learn so much about them. Many thanks -... More

Choose good weather to enjoy the outdoor World of Wing's experience. Educational & thrilling to see an owl and hawk swoop down for food. Held in your own gloved hand, it is a unique privilege to have a close encounter with a bird of prey. The keepers are committed and professional. The large aviary has a variety of raptors to...

Excellent day out and the enthusiasm of the staff complemented the excitement of handling and viewing those magnificent birds of prey. The hot chocolate almost kept out the cold in what was a miserable day. Thanks - will visit again.

Went down and watched the display. Both handlers gave excellent information of the birds and it was great to see them fly and sit so close. Went... More

I booked a handling session after seeing some of the beautiful birds at the Gardening Scotland event in June. It was quite a thrill to be able to hold a big Bateleur Eagle and to have a beautiful little owl fly from its perch and land on your gloved hand. The display session later in the day was also very...

I went along to 'World of Wings' for the ' 1/2 day birds of prey' experience. Having just enjoyed the best weather in years, I can't believe I picked Sunday the 26th of October to visit 'WoW'. The wind and rain combined to make the conditions 'very challenging' (putting it politely). However even the weather couldn't dampen the day. The... More
