Dirty. Animals looked uncared for. And was expensive for what it is. I won't be back. Has gone down hill over the years

I was in the area on a holiday and whilst my family all headed to a theme park, I have a one year old daughter who would have been to young to go on anything, me and my partner decides to take her to this country park instead. We spent around two and a half hours here and had good... More

You are not likely to find it if you only follow the sign posts. Animals are few and ordinary. I asked about the lemurs at the ticketing office, but they forgot to tell me that the lemur area was closed that day.

Do not go unless you like pigs, donkeys and chickens, animals don't look very well cared for and enclosures overgrown, the most annoying thing was the meerkat enclosure and lemur enclosure were locked up and was told they had to get rid and that no zoo had them anymore even though 2 weeks ago at Edinburgh zoo they were there....

Went with my daughter (2) and niece (6) on Monday afternoon, not the best wildlife park going. Enclosures seemed very run down and in desperate need of repair/upgrade. Birds seemed cramped with little entertainment. Walkways were overgrown with weeds and nettles. Doubt I'd go back again and would recommend people go to the one outside aviemore.

I have been visiting this park for years with my family and have always enjoyed the experience, ok it's old world but where else do you get the chance chance for close interaction with animals and be able to feed them. The Creatures all seemed well fed and happy to me. My grandchildren love it

It is my birthday today and I wanted to go to the wildlife park as I had been there four years before and really enjoyed it, and it is only ten minutes from our home on the Black Isle. The same could not be said today, it is run down, lacking in animals and not value for money at all... More

This is a sorry excuse for family entertainment. Many of the enclosures were overgrown with weeds and rusted. First we had a dreadful time trying to find the place the signs are so bad. Most of the animals were in fields so fare away you couldn't pet them or be near them. The ducks and geese ponds were full of... More

We went here despite other people telling us how run down it was. We thought it couldn't be that bad but it was. All the enclosures are rotten and don't look like they have had any maintenance for a number of years. The animals looked in fair condition to be honest but the variety was disappointing. One lonely Zebra in... More

I visited here as a birthday treat for my 3 year old and was extremely disappointed. Prices very high, gift shop filthy with dirt and dust all over toys, carpets and shelves. Park itself was extremely overgrown with nettles against the fences where we were meant to feed animals. Very few animals, mainly empty cages and enclosures with animals were... More
