First impressions outside may not be great as there is clearly a fair amount of development going on to grow the centre, but once inside it's great and as expected with an added twist of a field of reindeer next door. Demonstrations were brilliant with being hands on, which was great for me and my 12 yr old son (something... More

This was a surprise. Have previously visited falconry centre on Isle of Wight and while Huntly is not on the same scale was equally enjoyable. Interaction with the birds was different and gave the opportunity to see the birds really close-up. (i.e.Eyeball to eyeball) Great Day!!

What a wonderful day we spent at the Winter Gardens in Duthie Park. We were so lucky to have a nice day, and the gardens themselves were in excellent condition, the colours amazing and free entrance to boot! Thank you for a wonderful day on my birthday!

We visited the falconry in September 2012 for the first time and recently brought our visitors with a small child there again. It's a fantastic place really! Not only you can learn about life of birds of prey, see them fly and catch their food, but you can enjoy the company of deer! The show is very interactive and you... More

Just back from attending a morning at the North East Falconry in Huntly having purchased "An Introduction to Falconry - Gift Voucher Experience package" as a birthday gift and I can honestly say it was well worth it and probably one of the most memorable days ever! From the minute we arrived we were well looked after by the staff.... More

Huntly, not too far away. The centre is well laid out with a gift shop and tea room. The birds are some in huge cages and others tied up out in the open. The "Bird Man" knows his birds well and has a good way with the children. My husband, my 8yr old grandson and myself had a lovely family... More

We went to the Falconry Centre on a bright and very sunny afternoon in July. Great location with stunning panoramic views - the handler running the demonstrations was very professional and invited questions about the various birds. He made sure that everyone who wanted to could handle the birds and pose for photos - we got some great shots. Visitor... More

We spotted this centre on our way back from Inverness to Inverurie and made plans to visit the following day (fortunately the weather was great). It was worth the 22 mile trip. The handlers were extremely knowledgable and patient as this was the first time we had seen the handlers to allow all the children and as many adults that... More

This was absolutely worth the drive off the beaten track! The littlest member of our family (aged 5) loved it, and got to get involved- Dad and step-mam also loved it too. The birds are clearly well loved and well looked after. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and gave us lots of information in a way the whole... More

Somewhat off the main road, this centre deserves a visit. Birds seem to be well kept, and the demonstrations are quite impressive. Even young children will be able to have a bird of prey perched on their (gloved) hand.
