What a shocking place. For the first few minutes we tried to laugh it off because we didn't want to spoil things for our 4 year old. But even she could tell how dreadful it was and was happy to leave. It's completely run down, unkempt, empty pens, drab cafe, uninspiring gift shop, notices everywhere warning you that the animals...

We went in August, and quite enjoyed out visit. Must say we were expecting something larger and when we saw the small car park wondered whether to go in. We did however, and it turned out better than expected. It is quite homely if that seems a strange term. There is a gift shop and nice cafe, both with very... More

Loved every minute. Well worth £9 and more importantly the £1 on animal feed. So amazing to be so close to animals that look content and happy. Staff friendly and welcoming. Will defiantly return.

Visited 12 years ago & then today. Thought that it might have improved but it's just got so much worse. It looks like the most unloved park I've ever been to where nobody gives a toss about the animals that they keep. These lovely creatures are kept in the most awful looking cages & pens. It was really shocking &... More

We are not long back from our visit from 'this' wildlife park. It was horrible to say the least. We had a large party including 3 young children. First of all we walked round the corner to find a poor dead owl with flies all around... (This was 12.30pm) so obviously been there a while!!! And then going round the... More

It breaks my heart to write this review It's quite costly to visit here and the quality of the attraction is poor It's a much needed attraction for the highlands and major investment and referb is needed. I could of cried and wanted to stay and help take care of animals This would not be acceptable in England unless attraction... More

If someone could go round this park with a strimmer, nail & hammer and a pot of paint, it might give the place the makeover it needs. My children loved it but I felt the park owners have neglected the place. There were weeds, tall grass everywhere, in the pens, along the paths, in the children's playground. The animal pens...

Having read other reviews, have decided to look at it from the children's view....aged 9, 7 & 5 they... More

What a disappointment, Rats, weeds, empty enclosures and not much else. This place should be closed down! Would not recommend to anyone and at £24,50 for 2 adults and one child to look around empty enclosures and a large number of goats not to mention rats running around was a rip off!
