First off.. we had a lot of trouble finding the place as the GPS in our rental car could not figure it out. it's a bit out of the way. Once there we did not expect such a large group for the 3 hour falconry. we got to handle several birds of prey including a bald eagle and got an... More

I'd read about Phoenix Falconry on TripAdvisor and thought me and my husband might want to give it a try. We were very fortunate to book an appointment during the early part of September. Tom was an excellent guide bringing us through the bird holding pens and describing all the different breeds of these beautiful birds. He even allowed me... More

My wife and I arrived at the Phoenix Falconry in Scotland, and were greeted by Adrian. I immediately liked his welcoming, engaging, and pleasant personality. We started the day by watching two documentaries about birds of prey. Adrian narrated the documentaries.... from memory......and not by following a written script. You discover very early in the process that Adrian is not... More

This is without a doubt a great experience, instructor( Adrian) has some 30years experience and was informative and so knowledgeable of the birds. The whole 3 hours plus was enthralling. As with most people booking this it is something I have always wanted to do and believe me you will not be disappointed. I live on the Isle of Skye... More

My husband got me the Phoenix Experience for my birthday, and it didn't disappoint! We heard all about the way the birds are trained and how they are differently adapted to suit their hunting styles. Finding out about all the falconry terms which have worked their way into our language was also fascinating. The birds themselves stole the show, though.... More

So glad I checked Trip Advisor for suggestions on activities in Perthshire, as Phoenix Falconry is not advertised anywhere (that I have seen). We have been coming to the area for 25 years and never knew about this well-kept secret. I had wanted to book Meet the Birds, due to the cost, but we only had a couple of days,... More

We had booked the 'Falconry Experience' which included an introduction by the very knowledgeable Adrian. His depth of knowledge and experience is awe inspiring. We were introduced to the birds of prey in the paddock, before being led out with the Harris Hawk. Everyone, including a very brave 9 year old, had the hawk fly to the glove. This is... More

My partner and I visited June 2014. What an absolutely fantastic experience. Adrian's knowledge, skill, understanding and care of the animals is inspiring. He knows his stuff. Unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favour and we got totally drenched but the birds still were great. Lovely to be able to get up an close with the various breeds of birds... More

I took my wife here for the Meet The Birds Experience. Just fantastic, and ideal for all ages. Adrian is a genuine expert, and his passion shines through. He ensured everyone was able to experience each bird personally, relaxing the more nervous while keeping us all entertained. If you enjoy birds of prey, you have to visit. The birds' welfare... More
