Blackisle Wildlife Park is a happy home to a wide range of animals (over 40 species!) spread over it's impressive 50 acres and provides an excellent family day out opportunity. You'll encounter Ducks through Emus, Lemurs through Zebras and everyone's current favorite: the meerkats! They even had some baby meerkats arrive this spring and you can't get cuter than that!
The hatchery facility is where you can watch the chick eggs hatching, of course, but it's also where you can handle rabbits, chicks and harmless snakes, or try and persuade the parrots to talk or dance: try leading by example! It's an excellent chance for kids to get hands on with the cuties (yes, we're including the snakes in that!) and also to get them in out of the sun for a bit.
There's a neat outdoor adventure play area which boasts a pirate play ship, nippy zip wire, super swings and slippy slides so there's plenty of fun to go around for ages 2 through 12. There's also a new maze feature waiting for the brave: will you find your way out of Blackisle again? Will you want to?!?
Plus you can grab a free train ride (the best kind!) around the lower half of the park and treat small legged folk to a nice overview of the of ponds, fields and many animal enclosures without putting in the personal mileage. The custom walk ways are suitable for buggies and wheelchairs however so take your push power with you and you can follow up the train ride with a nice big walk around everything you've seen! Twice if you like!
