I cannot recommend the north east falconry centre to anyone who likes animals. The birds are kept on a very short leash and frightened baby birds are forced to be pet by kids. That is not the way I expect animals to be treated. If you want to see owls and falcons better catch a show at the Dunrobin Castle... More

The trainer was excellent. The kids enjoyed so much the exhibition. I highly recommend it. There are different kind of birds all of them nicely trained and in excellent conditions.

We went there as a family to experience falconry up close. There are different programs available from 3 hour in depth coaching and learning about the different types of birds, etc... and then they also have a quick introduction to falconry. Our oldest son did the 3 hour course and we did the introduction. Lot of fun to experience and... More

The North East Falconry Centre is a great place to visit either as a couple, with a family or even on your own. You pay an entrance fee which goes towards the upkeep of the birds of prey at the centre. There are display's which you can get involved in, for example having a Falcon land on your gloved hand...

There are lots of different birds for the children to see and they put on shows during the day so they children can see the birds fly.

I was here with my family on a Sunday, expecting the place to be hopping as the holiday season in Scotland has started. Instead we had the place almost ourselves, and were lucky enough to hold a couple of the different birds. The staff were knowledgeable and shared what they could with us and there was room to ask lots... More

My partner and I visited the falconry centre at 10:30am on a Friday and we were the only people there, apart from a couple having a falconry lesson. Despite us being on our own, the staff gave us a brilliant display and it was basically having a 1-to-1 lesson as well! We both 'held' an owl and a falcon and... More

I took my children to see the birds. They loved the demonstration and were over the moon when they got to hold them. A unique experience would highly recommend.
