The Scottish Deer Centre, Cupar

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Cupar
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.

    As we went there with Itison vouchers the price was £14 per family and good bargain. Of course our children were more then excited feeding the deer and watching the birds of prey show, but for my eyes...  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.
