The centre is home to over 20 Owls, representing every native species as well as unique or unusual species from other parts of the world. See "Orla", the magnificent Golden Eagle. And learn of our successes in rehabilitation of wild Birds of Prey & Owls in conjunction with the Scottish SPCA. An educational day out for all ages, and a chance to relax in wonderful surroundings.

It's a small place and not that many birds, but you can tell they are well kept. Really worth visiting.

Visited with wife and 14 year old daughter , was advised on entering that due to bird flu that birds were not able to be displayed outside of their pens. Obviously this was a bit disappointing but laws are laws and we decided to go ahead. I can see how the Centre could be a bit of a Marmite place... More

We had a brilliant visit today with our two children 7 & 9. Friendly, informative and kind staff and wonderful owls and birds of prey. The children loved the quiz and rushed back to reception with their answers. Really enjoyed - a nice 90 minute / 2 hour stop.

Decided to visit with my teenage son who loves photography and wanted to practice taking photos here. Was so disappointed at reception to be ignored when it was my turn to be served. Rather than acknowledge me, he turned to a group of children with parents who were leaving and chose to mark around 6 workbooks throughly and individually which... More

Spent about twenty minutes visiting this attraction. £8 per adult is very expensive to pay to see birds that were not being flown. The staff did advise that some of the birds were in quarantine and so they could not fly birds. Most of the birds were tethered. Met a lovely gentleman who was very informative and passionate about his... More

Having visited here before, we opted to go back while staying in the area on holiday. As always it was obvious the birds are well looked after and the staff are very enthusiastic and are obviously passionate about what they do. Would definitely recommend a visit here.

It left me wanting more... i wanted to see an exhibition of the birds in flight (like Leeds Castle) i wanted to see a handler with a bird on his arm ( his wife might object phnarr)... More

Visited with my kids aged 12 and 5 and both loved it. Beautiful, well looked after birds and very informative staff. Got 25% off entry price on day of visit and if you keep your wrist band you get in for half price on next visit. Well worth a look.

Visited this place this afternoon and what a find! Spent over 2 hours with my two sisters taking in all 38 species of birds of prey. The afternoon was helped by the knowledge of Stewart and (I think) Alan (apologies if this name is wrong). They are clearly passionate about the work they do and it shows in the bond... More
