The Highland Wildlife Park
Experience Scottish wildlife past and present in the spectacular setting of the Highland Wildlife Park. See the amazing variety of animals found in present day Scotland, then step back in time and meet the animals that our ancestors must have known, hundreds, even thousands of years ago. Drive around the Main Reserve in your own car and then investigate the walk-round area by foot. A diverse range of habitats support the unique wildlife found nowhere else in Britain. See Red Squirrels, Golden Eagles, Crested Tits and Otters, Wolves, Arctic Foxes, Badgers, Pine Martens, & Wild Cat – and other rare and lesser known species.
