The Scottish Deer Centre, Cupar

#1 of 8 in Wildlife in Fife
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Get an up-close look at Scotland’s wildlife at the The Scottish Deer Centre. Set on 22 hectares (55 acres) of Fife countryside, the center houses 14 species of other animals native to the region including otters, wolves, and several birds of prey. Attend a hawk handling to hear more about these amazing birds or help feed one of the hand-reared young deer. Take a treetop walk through the Witches Woods for a bird’s-eye view of the area. Before leaving, visit the center’s woolen mill store or Highland food and whiskey shop for traditional Scottish products to take home. A visit to The Scottish Deer Centre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cupar vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • The deer centre is a really good day out. You can spend all day there as there is the animals and the walk way but also timed attractions, a park, an indoor play area, education room, cafe & shops. We...  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 h...  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 o...  more »
  • What a great place to spend the day. Feed the deer, meet some close up and hear all about the different species with guided walks and talks from the very knowledgeable staff. See the wolf's, bears, lynx, Fox, wild cats, getting fed and meet the three resident playful otters. The bird display is not to be missed. Otis the owl up close. Highly recommended a visit.
  • Not quite worth the money you pay, as it's quite small and not much to do. If you have really young kids, they will love the animals and the play area. However if you have older kids, age 8+, it will not hold their interest for long. Deer were adorable and incredibly friendly, we got to see bears and wolf's (the highlight of my son's day) and we got to see an owl at the bird of prey. It was good and broke up our day, but it was all over within 2 hours. Can't really make a day of it.
  • Well worth a visit.. Loved how open it was and the amount of different animals here and so many different deer.. You can also feed some of the animals
  • Such a brilliant place to take children theres a small park for little ones and a bigger one for older ones best time to go is spring as you get all the baby deer
  • Nice place for a day out with kids although make sure it's a dry day as there is very little indoors if it rains or gets cold. Very reasonable prices lots to see and do at different times of the day. Only complaint is having to go back outside the visitor centre to use the toilets and come back in through the main door / entrance as there are no other toilets anywhere that I could find.
