Although quite expensive, we have returned several times and have found the park to be an interesting and enjoyable day out.The new wolf enclosure is great. It is a lovely walk round spotting the animals. (read more)

Most of the reviews that I had read about the Highland Wildlife Park were terrible so decided not to bother. My two children aged 10 and 12 pressured me into going and I am so glad that we did! We had a fantastic time, the park was so beautiful and packed with wonderful animals. We had been to Edinburgh Zoo a few days before but found that it wasnt a patch on this park. The kids loved the safari part of the park and we went round 3 times! you can go round as many times as you like. The kids... (read more)

Living in Scotland I had never been to visit this park and was on my wish list. The drive round part of the park was closed due to the recent bad weather. Fair enough. The rest was very disappointing. No wild boar - on loan to some highland estate. Otter had died. Only one wolf, the pack of Timber Wolves were euthanised in 2006 to make way for a new pack of European Wolves. So - just what has happened to them? Mercedes the Polar Bear was pacing a muddy patch back and forth and had been... (read more)

Went to The Highland Wildlife Park with 4 children and one adult, very expensive day out, £46 to get in and £33 for lunch, we only had we had toasties and a drink each. Animals had lovely big cages, but were difficult to see. The children were disappointed there weren't more animals to see and I feel we get better value for money at Edinburgh Zoo.

In this day and age to keep a place closed, yet is is advertised as being open, no mention of it being closed in "Jack Frost" weather is ludicrous!! The cost of the petrol it took for us to get there and the time we left at - 6.30 am - 4 hours driving to arrive at 10.30 am and then to find it closed with a notice saying because of snow!! Rubbish. What a waste of money in petrol and time getting there. Never again!!
What a disappointing day. We ended up going to Loch Rannoch, which was... (read more)

This is a mixed terrain location with some steep walks, some easy and a long drive around the park itself. Not totally wheelchair friendly. You need a day to explore properly, but it is well worth the time. A reasonable restaurant with nice food. Picnic areas and good washrooms. Nearer to Inverness than Perth, but fine if you are in the Central Highlands.
Very photographer-friendly, keen and helpful staff. (read more)
