You can also come face to face with some amazing birds in the Raptor World Bird of Prey Centre. You’ll learn all about these amazing creatures and enjoy a day that is not only fun, but also provides a fascinating insight into the animal kingdom. More information about daily tours, feeding events, activities and dates can be found on the centre's website. After a busy day getting to know the animals, why not relax and unwind with afternoon tea in the café, or pick up a bargain at the woollen mill shop.Take a walk on the wild side and join The Scottish Deer Centre for a great day out the whole family will enjoy!

We had a amazing day at The Scottish Deer Centre. We got there at 10:30 and didn't leave until 16:00 and the whole day was filled. The tour, talks and shows are fantastic. The staff are incredibly knowledgable and can answer any questions. The animals are well cared for and are in lovely environments where each species has its needs... More

Just back from the Scottish Deer Centre after a enjoyable day with the family. We were lucky enough to get this on a itison deal for £4 per adult but for what's on offer the £8.50 per adult full price is money well spent also. Soon as we arrived we were lucky enough to catch the feeding of the deers... More

Visited the Scottish Deer Centre today with my son and his family. After paying the full entry price and buying three bags of feed, we enquired about the tractor trailer ride only to be told that they don't do it during the winter! An extremely upset 11 yr old as he was really looking forward to this - there is... More

We went 2nd Jan 2017, white a few people visiting on a crisp sunny day. All tours were on even though right after Christmas. Load of species of deers, bears, lynx, wolves, elks, otters, birds of prayer. We only paid £4 each thanks to Itison voucher. Able to feed some of the deers, some cracking Stags too, very majestic. Good... More

It was very easy to find on the A91 west of Cupar. There are lots of different breeds of deer plus moose, bear, wolf and otter to name a few of the other animals. Some were friendlier than others and would approach you at their paddock fence, although it probably helped having (official) food pellets to offer them. Throughout the... More

I wrote a review at the beginning of this year about our Santa experience at Cupar Deer Centre and I am doing the same again. The visit this year was FANTASTIC, Santa looked great like a Santa should and his Ho Ho Ho was booming. You get a good 5 minutes with Santa and this year they had a professional... More

Loved it, I am 40 and had the absolute best day! My husband not so much but he has hayfever and forgot to take his tablet. Especially loved feeding the deer, taking the walk around the enclosures, seeing the fox and other wildlife. Had hoped to see some red squirrels but they were just too good at hiding. The tree...

First return visit for many years. Lots to see and very informative signs around the park. There are guided tours and displays, however we did not partake in these so cannot comment on them. The park can get muddy (it's outdoors afterall) so be prepared to wear some waterproof footwear. There were parts of the park undergoing some maintenance and... More
