Excellent place, staff brilliant, particularly Andy who took me on the tour of the dear and barn owl. Owing to the time of year I could not take the safari, however it is certainly not a place to miss.

Many thanks for this super review. On the odd occasion when it's not possible to go on Safari due to deep snow on the hills, you can indeed still have a great time in the Red Deer Centre at Highland Safaris, get right up close to and even feed our wonderful Red Deer herd and meet the Ossian the enigmatic...

Extremely informative. Fantastic mountain safari, great value for money. Fantastic staff who took us to the mountains with snow - just what we wanted. They looked after the dog for us in the car, there was shaded parking which we didn't need.

We had a lovely afternoon at the Deer and Owl Experience. Andy was a great guide and we were well informed on the deer and enjoyed feeding them, they are real characters!! To be so close to the beautiful barn owl was fantastic . We learned so much on both the deer and the owl. We then had a lovely... More

It's a great location and the experience really let's you get into parts of the landscape you'd normally never see, never mind drive a Landrover in! The guides are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the local history and flora and fauna.

We visited in October and due to having a little one we only did the deer experience rather than a safari on advice from the staff. (At the time she was 1 and a half) This consisted of a talk about the deer then a session where we hand fed them. This was then followed by a talk and viewing... More

Many thanks for this super review. Delighted the wee one loved the Red Deer and Barn Owl - we often have 3 generations of a family (recently even 4!) and from the youngest to the oldest, they are absolutely captivated too. Good to hear you liked the Café (and staff - I have passed on your kind comments). Looking forward... More

A brilliant experience and different to the one I did in May. Saw a stag ( although quite a distance away) and really tested the capabilities of the land rover defender. The dram in the bothy ( together with the tea and shortcake) was very welcome. This time I also tried the red deer encounter which was enjoyable. Can thoroughly... More

Many thanks for taking the time to post this super review. It's great when people return to enjoy a Safari at a different time of year - the hills are quite spectacular in the winter and indeed it's fascinating to see what the Land Rovers can do! It sounds like you also enjoyed some of our home baking in the... More

Our ranger Andy was knowledgable and very helpful. Jean at reception was lovely. We chose a walk on your own tour and Andy dropped us at the mountain top. We had gorgeous panoramic views of snow capped mountains shrouded in cloud, pine forest and down into the glen. Perfect conditions. Safari lodge was buzzing when we got back. Everyone happy,...

Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff; interesting drive up the hills from icy misty views across the valley and then the sun breaking through for breathtaking vistas, and red deer seen with binoculars on the adjacent hillsides. The red deer experience in the adjacent building is fun and informative too, and you get your hand slobbered on as you feed the deer... More
