A great place to visit, polar bears were amazing. Much of the visitor area has been upgraded, the cafe and outdoor eating areas are really nice and very good value...superb venison burgers from the cafe. Very well worth the entrance fees. A great day out.

This wildlife park was great fun to visit and had a unique set of animals. The park seemed to focus on animals found in the highlands of Scotland plus any other animals that live in colder conditions. There were lynx, polar bears, many types of deer plus so many other animals. The stars of the show for me however were... More

We very much enjoyed the park as it had a number of different animals compared to other zoos. We would return in the future.

We had a lovely day out here,it was so nice to see a lot of animals in decent sized enclosures instead of cages and small enclosures,the usual Zoo standard. The polar bears were wonderful,and entertained us by sliding from the top of their lair,all the way down in the snowy mud.They then repeated this game several times.By the end of... More

This is simply a must see attraction. Part drive through, part walk through so best of all worlds. Park has a wonderful feel to it and the animals are simply amazing. You really do feel able to get up close and personal with tigers, polar bears and other amazing creatures. Feeding times are announced throughout the day. Loads to do... More

This is a great place to get close to some rare and beautiful wildlife. We walked round all of the enclosures and had great views of the animals. The talks that are put on throughout the day added a lot to our visit, given by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. We used Tesco Clubcard days out vouchers for the entry, so... More

I do enjoy visiting zoos, as someone who has spent her life wanting to work with animals I find them both a good day out and interesting in regards to species and enclosure design. So please, bear in mind as you read this review, I know a fair bit about this subject. A lot of the reviews I'm reading are... More

Yes it is pricey to get in - but you are getting a safari part and a separate part you walk around...and supporting the important work the zoo does with Scottish Wildcats. Some of the animals can't be seen, but then I wouldn't expect them to be donning top hats and canes to tap dance and entertain the crowds -... More
