Booked online and arrived well in advance of the activity which started at noon. We were given a warm welcome and browsed the gift shop and the discovery trail. There were plenty things to see and do along the way including a little maze and activities as well as a brilliant view of great scenery, The activity itself was fab... More

Many thanks for this super review. Delighted you enjoyed feeding the Red Deer herd and the Discovery Trail. It is indeed a very special thing to be at such close quarters to Britain’s largest land mammal! If someone is late, it is our policy to wait a couple of minutes then start. I am so sorry to hear this was... More

Booked a mountain safari for my partners 40th. We were guided by Colin. Very informative. The safari was great, and even got to see some red deer! Luckily we had nice weather. Not sure what it would have been like if it was raining. Loved stopping in the Bothy for coffee and the dram of whiskey (Dewars £200 a bottle)

Took the mountain safari, guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Good view from the top of the mountain. Vehicle was a bit cramped if you were tall. Very dependent on the weather.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your Safari. We often find that wildlife spotting can actually be better on a stormy day and have spotted soaring Golden Eagle and Red Deer sheltering in a mountain corrie in these conditions. Delighted that you enjoyed the super views - we aim to stop as often as possible to let people... More

Many thanks for taking the time to post this review, Bob. The point you make about local people coming out on Safari is so true - this amazing landscape looks and feels so different when you are up on the hills. Delighted you enjoyed it. More

We went on the highland safari and it was worth every penny going into areas that you cannot reach by car and enjoying the fantastic views. We had a great guide called Tommy and he had superb knowledge of the area. We stopped at what was similar to a ski lodge in the middle of the forest and were served... More

Thank you for this super review. I will pass your comments to Tommy. It sounds like you were possibly in the 6 wheel drive, all-terrain 'Pinzgauer' vehicle. If so, you are in very good company as it was the vehicle of choice in the new Jurassic World movie coming out in June! Delighted you also enjoyed the Red Deer Centre,... More

My husband and I had a brilliant time. The safari guide was a pleasure to meet and was very knowledgeable. He spotted a massive group of stags sunbathing on the slope which was the highlight of the 2.5hrs, not to mention the journey itself, the whiskey, and the wonderful scenery. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again and couldn't recommend it... More
