Bird of Prey Experience in Scotland
We love this Football Experience available in Blackford, Perth and Kinross – Scotland.
Get up close and personal with some of nature’s magnificent and regal birds of prey and learn all about the art of falconry. Your experience starts with a tour of the bird of prey centre, where you’ll get close to different species and learn what makes a hawk a hawk, a falcon a falcon and an owl an owl. Then get expert tuition in the art of falconry and take time to handle the birds so that you get comfortable with one another. Next it’s time to try out falconry for real – you’ll fly some birds to the fist, watching them show off their skills and getting some thrills medieval-style when a top predator comes into land on your glove.
Seven days a week throughout the year. The venue is closed on Christmas Day. Dates fill up quickly, so book several weeks in advance and allow even longer for popular summer weekend dates.
Please call the venue for a weather check before setting out. If your experience is cancelled because of bad weather it will be re-booked for an alternative date.
Your experience will last for around three hours.
There will be up to eight people taking part.
This is a specialised experience and numbers are kept to a small group. Please liaise directly with the venue if you’d like to arrange a spectator booking (£27.50, payable on the day).
Dress for the outdoors and wear sturdy wellies or walking boots. Bring a change of clothes if the weather is very wet. If you have a camera or a pair of binoculars, bring them along.
Minimum age is 14.
Please note that dogs are not permitted on-site.
