I wasn't sure what to expect here but the time spent here certainly far exceeded any expectations I might have had. We were part of a group of about 16. As well being given a demonstration of a falcon chasing a lure (which was impressive for the speed of the bird) the falconer brought 5 other birds out in turn,... More

Bought voucher (Meet The Birds) for my hubbys birthday. Adrian (Master Falconer) greeted us on arrival and gave us a short chat re the birds we would be handling and general safety rules. I was very nervous and quite happy to just stand in background watching but after Adrians encouragement and reassurance I hesitantly fed the first bird, a hawk.... More

I was unexpectedly phoned on a Sunday morning and given three hours short notice to get there as the session booked for the next day would have to be cancelled, because I was told, there would be "torrential rain" on Monday. This turned out to be untrue, it turned out be a pleasant, dry day on the Monday. My husband... More

Our favorite experience while visiting Scotland! Everyone in my family enjoyed the visit to Phoenix Falconry (located next to Gleneagles in Blackburn). My family (four of us-sons are 19 and 21) participated in the basic falconry lesson which provided an in depth history of falconry, a tour of the facility, and the opportunity to fly a hawk. Adrian was our... More

My partner and I bought the Phoenix Experience which included falconry lesson and meet the birds part and lasted about 3 hours. We got to fly different birds of prey, which was amazing and a bit scary. Adrian made it all seem really easy and made this experience very special; very knowledgeable guy. We had so much fun, it was... More

Have just returned from "The Falconry Adventure" with Phoenix Falconry which was the full day trip which included The Falconry Lesson, Meet The Birds and a half day hunt with a GosHawk. There are many places offering Falconry experiences but i am sure you will not find one as professionally run. The owner Adrian has been involved with the birds... More

Visited recently and was absolutely stunned at the experience. This was an excellent gift, myself and girlfriend both really enjoyed it. The venue is clean and tidy, also the individual stalls for the birds are well kept. Adrian knows so much about falconry and everthing else connected with it which he is happy to share. We both learnt so much... More
