I bought the "meet the birds experience" + one spectator for my partner and me ( me being a little chicken ) the full experience from start to finish was more than worth the buck. The owner was welcoming, informative and so enthusiastic about his birds, all of which looked beautiful, and impeccably cared for. The experience was not only... More

Hands down the best falconry experience I've had. Beautiful birds which are clearly well cared for and well loved, a guide who is very knowledgeable, personable and clearly loves his job, a small group so plenty of chances to hold and fly the birds (including a bald eagle - no messing about here!) and a cup of tea afterwards. Lovely.

We had a wonderful day at this Falconry Centre. The site is impressive: the birds are housed in spotless areas, and the care shown to them is exemplary. We felt honoured to be trusted with letting the birds land on our gloves. These well trained birds showed us their intelligence and fun, and we had a great time interacting with... More

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
