When we visited we were welcomed with a smile by Laura who clearly loves her job, the passion and enthusiasm made our experience even better, my wife was really uneasy going in, never mind touching a snake, but Laura managed to get her to hold a python. The information and the time she spent really was a joy. Highly recommended

We loved this beautifully presented home for neglected,abused and trafficked snakes and reptiles. The staff were thoroughly engaging and informative, the one room is so well planned for most efficient use of space, and comfort of the inhabitants. (staff not included). There's something interesting wherever you look. I think the entrance fee is very reasonable , especially considering all the... More

This is a must for anyone visiting Skye. The staff there are so knowledgeable on reptiles. We were there not short of an hour, and the member of staff must have talked for the best part of it. He gave so much information, it was difficult to think of a question he hadn't covered already. Near the end of the... More

Okay, it's not a huge place, as has been noted by some. Mainly it is an off shoot of a self funded reptile rescue charity. I won't go into it as they will explain all to you when you visit, but I found the owners and staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The area where the reptiles and snakes are... More

Nice little serpentarium displaying a number of snakes and reptiles. All animals here have been rescued and the the place is run by knowledgeable people who not only know how to look after them but also pass on their wisdom and information to visitors. Not a day out by any means, but a nice experience and a great little café... More

My third visit here in about 20 years, this time with our 19-month old son. A great selection reptiles to see, and a very welcoming owner. Could only be improved by being a bit bigger, but still a fantastic place to stop by and well recommended.

This is a nice rainy day activity, especially to take the kids to. The reptiles are beautiful, and the staff are incredibly animated and engaging. The £4.50 to get in might seem like a lot when you first walk in because it is very small, but it is jam-packed with stuff to keep you interested. Plus it's all for a... More

On a recent trip to Skye, weather being somewhat cold and rainy, called in to this small but worthwhile centre which takes in reptiles which are either no longer wanted, too difficult for families to keep or confiscated by the RSPCA, SPCA or Customs Officials (when discovered being smuggled into the country). We were shown around by Billy, whose knowledge... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this place, but it was extremely enjoyable and very interesting. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and super-friendly. We learned loads about the rescue work they do, and about the animals themselves. It was thoroughly enjoyable, very reasonably priced, and I even held a snake, which was brilliant and fascinating and not at all... More
