I had the most amazing day here being a Zoo Keeper. It was super interesting seeing how they work with the animals and how the work they are doing is improving and helping endangered species. The Zoo Keeper for a day experience was great. I didn't realise how up close and personal you could get with these animals and it... More

I visited here in November 2016 and thought it was brilliant. I managed to see the polar bears and tigers which was breathtaking. There were also other interesting animals like deer, owls and goats. There is a cafe indoors which has food/drinks and toilets. I would recommend everyone visits this place at least once as it offers a unique experience,... More

One of the best visitor experiences in Scotland, One of the highlights of my visit was the Wildcat enclosure and the passionate and informative talk given to us by the cats keeper. I didn't catch the young lady's name who gave the talk but she was so enthused by her subject and her love for these beautiful endangered animals shone... More

the wildlife park is a must to visit if you are in the area , the drive through is great and the animals have great spacious enclosures and are well looked after , allow plenty of time to drive round and walk around its well worth the entrance fee

We visited here recently as a family of 4 adults and 2 children and we were all excited as there was something for every age group! There are lots of different animals to see - both by walking and driving through the park! We also saw feeding time for the polar bears, the snow leopards and the tigers - plus... More

A great place to visit to see wild animals in pretty authentic natural habitats. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff and a reasonably priced café. We spent about 4 hours going around and could easily have filled another couple by revisiting animals we had already seen. Even caught a glimpse of the elusive beaver.

What a great day out for all the family. There is so much to do and see for all ages. The animals are so well looked after and the keepers give talks on some of the animals while they are feeding them. Get there early to give you time to see everything this park has to offer. Good restuarant and... More
