Overview

Covering over 55 acres of countryside, the centre is home to fourteen species of deer from all over the world, Fife’s only wolf pack, otters and other rare breeds including the Scottish Wildcat. You can also come face to face with some amazing birds in the Raptor World Bird of Prey Centre. You’ll learn all about these amazing creatures and enjoy a day that is not only fun, but also provides a fascinating insight into the animal kingdom. More information about daily tours, feeding events, activities and dates can be found on the centre's website. After a busy day getting to know the animals, why not relax and unwind with afternoon tea in the café, or pick up a bargain at the woollen mill shop.Take a walk on the wild side and join The Scottish Deer Centre for a great day out the whole family will enjoy!

there are some tables, benches, children's playground, toilets in the courtyard where, eventually, there's a café to eat or drink something.
