Tucked away in the heart of the Fife Countryside, The Scottish Deer Centre is a real gem of Scottish rural and environmental life and a great place to spend a while with the kids. At the 55 acre Scottish Deer Centre there are 9 different species of deer on view, each with their own individual field or paddock to visit them in! Learn the differences between them and what makes each species' character unique!

There's also a Bird of Prey centre, a network of Tree Top Walkways, all weather picnic facilities, falconry displays at the Raptor World Bird of Prey centre and an indoor adventure play area too! The outdoor play area has also reopened and now features not only an adventure playground with sandpit, zip slide, and treetop walk but also a kart track and an indoor play area! Ideal for retreating to in the face of either extreme sun or rain! Hey, it's a British Summer!

Daily Events and Tours include Ranger Tours, otter feeding, trailer rides, Guided Tour, and the excellent Carnivore Feed and Walk! Plus their collection includes 14 species of deer from around the world, Fife's only Wolf pack, Otters and other rare Scottish species including the Wildcat. Plus you can also book 15 minutes in with a hand-reared deer! Get hands on learning covering adaptations to life in the wild of Scotland, antler growth and development.

Really nice place with lovely deer and other animals. You can see them and feed some of them. Cart ride is a really nice thing to take, which you should book as soon as you come in (limited places), as it takes you right into the pen and has deer eating out of your hands. My daughter really enjoyed her time there (and me too :P).
