Always really enjoy our visits here. This time we did the one and a half hour safari into the hills in an amazing old Austrian vehicle. Don't expect to see a huge amount of wildlife (not the same as an African Safari!), but fun going through the forests, rivers and uneven terrain. The red deer (and owl) experience good and... More

Fantastic day out! We didn't have time for one of the safaris but there is so much more at the centre! We booked for the deer feeding and meeting the barn owl.....great experience and then you can explore the rest of the site for free! The cafe was fantastic, kids loved the play area, small maze and general freedom ....such... More

Can't praise Highland Safaris enough. We did a Highland Safari and enjoyed it so much we returned the following week and did it again on a different route. The Red Deer Centre is well worth it and the cafe is lovely. Do visit - you won't be disappointed.

Many thanks for this super review. We really appreciate when guests come back for more Safaris (I think 7 is the record!) We have recently had several families re-visit the Red Deer Centre too (some of the children - and grown ups - have a fixation with Ossian the Barn Owl) and of course the Gold & Gem Panning. We...

Had a lovely afternoon learning about the deer and meeting beautiful barn owl. Well worth an hour of anyone's day. Great for all ages. Lots else to do here as well, including safaris, bike safaris and gold panning.

We used this place as a lunch stop for a group of 30 bikers. they had cordoned off a portion of carpark for us which was great. the soup and a sandwich deal we had organised was nice soup and a decent portion and a well filled cold meat salad roll for £6. great value for money. We didn't use... More

Passed by the Highland Safaris base whilst driving from Pitlochry, road sign offered a cafe so called in. Good decision, the site is well set up and the staff friendly. Top that off with a selection of great home made cakes, brilliant. Host of attractions for families, panning for good, play/climbing area and a red deer paddock. You can always... More

We took the four hour safari trek and the red deer and owl experience so spent the best part of the day here. Listening to Duncan, our red deer and owl guide, was so interesting. We learnt so much about these elusive creatures and were able to feed the resident deer and watch the barn owl fly. Later, we were... More

Due to some very poor weather forecast for the day we decided to make the most of this activity. Booked in for the 2.5 hour trip, red deer experience and gold panning, very pleasant lady sorted out our day on the phone. All three of us (two adults and a 10 year old) had a great day, very helpful staff,... More

A Safari can indeed be great fun in bad weather as can the Gold & Gem Panning and the Red Deer & Barn Owl Encounter (under cover) as you discovered! Thank you so much for such a strong recommendation. We hope you will be able to visit us again. More

This is a must for those who enjoy spectacular nature and fauna. A great day out for families with children too. The weather was not ideal, it was raining quite hard, but that didn´t spoil our safari. Allan, our guide, gave us a very good tour and we did see lots of deer, birds and a hare. He also showed...
