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!

Fantastic place for a day out ,staff are very helpful , good for the coach drivers also , a £10 voucher gets a good brekkie and coffee , for being a small place it puts a lot of similar places to shame.

We visited with 2 children and they especially enjoyed the outdoor play ground and also feeding the deer (remember to buy plenty of deer food at the entrance) I found the entrance fee a bit expensive for what it is. We had brought our own...More

We had a beautiful day for our visit. I thoroughly enjoyed walking round the deer enclosures but worried a bit that some of the deer appeared rather skittish. If they had a bit more cover they might have been more relaxed. Also on such a...More

This is an amazing place, especially for children. Unfortunately when I visited, some of the animals declined to show themselves (no fault of the park). I never realised there were so many varieties of deer. A moose is a deer? Never would have thought that!...More

Having haven't been here for a few years we were slightly disappointed that the parks animals had declined in the last few years the walk round was pleasant enough the toilets especially the males need a refurbishment

Wasn't much to see really - my kids 2 and 8months were to small for anything. The cafe was overpriced and the young girls serving need to learn about customer service with a smile. Wasn't impressed at all and travelled quite far for the pleasure

I believe so, you may have to change at Cupar, but a call to the centre will help you out.
