We are Scotland's largest birds of prey centre. There are over 70 birds to see and fantastic flying displays every day. Our birds include eagles, falcons, owls, hawks, vultures and parrots. We are open from 10am till 5pm and the displays are at 12 noon and 3pm daily. The centre is open 7 days a week all year round. We do experiences where you can handle and fly the birds (booking required). Come and sample our home cooking at The Cabin Cafe.

We have visited the centre as a family numerous times I have also attended photography mornings and never done any experiences. Voucher came up on group on and decided to go along with the kids for something different. Booked with no issue via the phone and arrived early to grab a cup or tea and a bite to eat. As... More

We visited World of Wings today with 40 teenage pupils as a school trip to enhance their study of the play 'Kes'. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The birds themselves are all absolutely beautiful and obviously very well cared for. What made the trip for us was the time and care that the staff took showing us the birds and... More

Got a voucher for the birds of prey experience and absolutely loved it! It's an easy enough place to find, has a cosy cafe at the reception and the activities started bang on time. There's a parrot sanctuary on the way to the birds of prey that has a friendly old parrot that said "hello" as I went back to... More

We timed our visit to see the flying display which started at 12pm and lasted about an hour. During the hour 4 different birds were brought out and flying about while we were tollld many interesting facts about... More

Staff were really lovely and well informed. Very accommodating and willing to tell us about the birds even when they weren't meant to be giving talks at the time. Birds are fab! Very cool to see them all so close to home!!!

This is a hidden gem of an attraction for all the family. Lynn is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the birds. Stewart, the head falconer is a joy to watch handling the birds. He has an excellent sense of humour also! The cafe staff were pleasant and welcoming, fooe was good and the man at reception was very friendly. Handling... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit here - family and friends group here for flying demo and a few of them taking the hands on approach! Staff are knowledgeable & friendly and clearly care a lot about the birds. Cafe brilliant for soup and sandwich lunch - gingerbread cake was very tasty too! Will be happy to come back again

It was unfortunate that it was raining the day we visited and it was very muddy. However, we had gone prepared with wellington boots on. The guy taking the tour was very knowledgeable about the birds and it was a thoroughly enjoyable visit. The little cafe served very nice soup and sandwiches and cakes and coffee.
