We drove from Edinburgh to visit the wildlife park and it was thoroughly worth it! Although the weather was rather damp in the morning, all of the keepers and staff we encountered were very cheery and welcoming. The animal's enclosures are very spacious and all look very well cared for. We took advantage of the guided tour around the park... More

Highland Wildlife Park really is a must-see! (wrap up warm though!) Part of the park is a drive-through safari area, which is where you can first see the male Polar Bears. Other species which can be seen include European Elk and European Bison, as well as other free-roaming hoofstock and native wildlife such as Brown Hares and Lapwings. The Polar... More

Great day out looking at the cold damp specimens on each side of the fences. The drive round lets yo get up close to the animals whilst the foot path lets you view the other animals on foot. The cafe and shop offer all thats needed for the trip. 11am is a good time to visit to see the feeding... More

We visited this wildlife park in the snow and it was amazing, all the animals are from cold climates and the snow made the animals look like they were in thier natural surroundings. The enclosures were well kept and very large all in all a very impressive wildlife park. The talks by the keepers were very interesting and informative giving... More

Always a great favourite with the family, this wildlife park continues to captivate every time we visit. Good to see that they are expanding and improving all the time. We have been regular visitors for well over 15 years, but each visit brings something new. Two areas I would suggest for improvement would be better PA equipment at the feeding... More

A unique experience viewing animals who live in the Tundra regions of the world. A mix of walking and driving to see animals in large enclosures and paddocks. Good catering facilities for families and the general public. My wife and I made a visit with our adult son who proposed the venue.

Well mostly everything....didn't hold out much hope for the beavers so was not dissatisfied! Having been to the park before a couple of years ago we decided to drop by on our way down from Inverness to Pitlochry for a few hours but you could really spend the entire day here. Personal highlight was the Red Panda's,Snow Leopards,Snowy Owls and... More

This park is small but has great exhibits. The polar bears were a particular highlight as one of them frolicked in the pool, diving for toys then throwing them and diving after them. You can drive and walk around most exhibits giving different views of each enclosure. The restaurant was warm and friendly with a view of the artic monkeys.... More
