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.

  • Visited with a friend and although it was food patting the deer I felt it was a bit dated. There are bears and wolves but it would be helpful if there was more information about them, like what the be...  more »

  • It was an interesting experience and the zoo keepers were really nice and informative. The Falconer was really amazing and took time educating my girl. The only downside was the Cafe. I found the quality off good very disappointing and over priced. The staff were polite and friendly though. I think considering the price you pay to get in that food and drinks shouldn't be so expensive. This can ruin a day easily.
  • Great day out! You can buy a bag of food and feed the deer as you walk round. There are specific feeding times for different animals like the red fox, otters and wolves so you can see them up close! Great play and picnic areas. Theres a birds of prey display too. Also a huge shop and lovely cafe.
  • Went on a half price voucher. Deer's and other animals were good to see and looked well looked after. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Outdoor play area was of a good standard as was cafe and picnic areas. Inside play area, toilets and some other parts could do with a lick of paint, clean and tidy. Needs some additional indoor and activities for under 5's to take it to the next level. Would have given less stars if paid full price.
  • August. My daughter brought me here for a day of photo taking. I found this place on the whole was disappointing. The leaflet given showing all the animals on the site was a little inflated. We walked for a good distance and found a lot of the enclosures had nothing in them. There are deer here and different types. Bears X 2, Wolf X 1, some otters and wild cats. Lynx? Birds of prey about a dozen types. The outdoor flying display of the birds was very good and entertaining. I compared this place to a visit we had to the Owl Center just past Livingston. We have this 5 stars. We give this Deer Park 3 stars as it cost more and had to many enclosures empty. Great for walkers and must be prepared for the weather. There are no shelters on that long walk.
  • Great day out here. Really big open space with the different types of deer plus loads more animals! Meet the otters, wolfs, wild cats, lynx, bears and the fox. Plenty of displays and guided talks with very knowledgeable friendly staff. The bird display is a must as you'll get very close to an awesome looking owl. Recommend to visit but bring your own food for a lovely picnic.
