Overall a good experience. You get to see many different birds of prey and some of them you can even hold them on your arm. Nice visit for a day out!

Went for a gift voucher where this lovely lady taught me and my other half how to actually do falconry. Was very informative and wonderful. She was engaging and very friendly and the birds were extremely beautiful and well behaved. Well spent 3 hours. The only negative about this experience was the owner of the place. When I called to...

Travelled from peterhead to huntly specifically to visit the birds of prey. We were not disappointed. Flying displays were superb, audience participation is very much encouraged, especially the children. The young lady who conducted the displays was very informative. Lots of different birds on display, I had a go with a gorgeous little barn owl, he was so friendly and... More

As we were driving to Aberdeen we saw the sign for the falconry center and decided to check it out. We were thrilled at the experience. There were eight participants and each of us got to put on the leather glove and have the birds - a Harris hawk, a Perigrine, and an owl land on our arm and eat.... More

This is an excellent centre to interact with Birds of Prey from teeny Tawny Owls to the large American Bald Headed Eagle. We have been three times now and are fascinated by the flying displays which the audience are encouraged to participate in. On our last visit I gave my Partner a 3 hour tuition pass in which she was... More

We really enjoyed visiting this place. Demonstration takes about an hour, and is worthwhile every penny!

The North East Falconry Centre is an impressive spot for children. The birds are very safe to hold in our hands and definitely it will be an exciting moment for everybody. The staff over there are very helpful and the deer are so so so friendly with children. A good place to visit.

Poorly maintained and very tired looking. Display consisted of one Tawny owl going all of 3 to 4 metres hand to hand, a Harris hawk going from the shed roof to the hand and the only bird that actually flew was a Peregrine/Gyr to the lure once. A very boring and lack lustre "display", even the static birds in the... More

Really well worth the 4hr 40min round trip. We took our 14 yr old son, initially he wasn't convinced then bring on the birds! He absolutely loved the demonstration and we loved the opportunity to handle two of them. The staff were very warm and friendly. We'll be back in the summer.
