The Scottish Deer Centre, Cupar

4.1
#1 of 12 in Wildlife in Fife
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. Put The Scottish Deer Centre into our Cupar attractions tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great day out for adults as well as children. Fantastic attractions such as feeding deer (£1.50 for a bag of pellets), birds of prey shows and otter feed & talk. They have awesome otters, elks, red foxes, a bear and so many different types of deer. The gift and farm shops have a wide range of products. The coffee shop is really good and offers a lot of different options including an Afternoon Tea for 2 for only £15. We had lots of fun visiting the Scottish Deer Centre and will definitely be back.
  • Great place for family's and young children. Very informative and there is plenty to keep young children entertained. There are falconry displays at specific times; a tree top walkway; play area and feed to purchase for the reindeers. There isn't just deer to see: there are wolves, bears and otters to name a few. It does have a beautiful cafe but there are also plenty of picnic tables around if you prefer to take your own. Would advise to take wellies or boots as it does get muddy.
  • The place is great. We always have great fun feeding the deer and walking around. The deer definitely know what the little white bag of food mean and they hoard to you! Nice walk and fun to see all of the deer and interact with them. The staff is amazing answering all questions and very nice. If you want to enjoy quality time outdoor .... it's priceless. Check it out it's great!!
  • Went there with my friend and we were supposed to spend the day looking at different things in st Andrews, but ended ended up spending the entire day at the deer centre. It was one of the best experiences ever. Not only do they have deer, but they have a myriad of other animals such as birds, otters, wolves and bears. It's a great place for a family outing. The animals were really well trained and the staff was really friendly. Would definitely recommend. But do keep an eye out for the bus timings, as they are not as frequent. They also had a play area for kids and had a fun little go cart track. Plus they also have loads of benches everywhere to have picnics.
  • Great day out. Loads to see and do. Definitely recommend the Afternoon Tea for 2 at £15 - delicious. Was there for 5 hours so good value for money. We were 2 adults looking for a day out that didn't cost a fortune and we definitely found it. We will be back.
