I did the Raptor/Owl Experience with my cousin a couple of weeks ago. We had a fantastic time. It was truly an amazing experience. Each person in the small group got a chance to fly both a hawk ( "Bojo") and a wonderfully imperious owl named Duke! Our instructor Daniel gave us a short intro to hawks and owls before we went out onto the great lawn area and flew the hawk and owl. The hour flew by (lol). Next time I go back to Edinburgh I definitely will go back to Dalhousie Falconry!

Myself and Heather attended an hours falconry on July 2nd 2018 for my 50th.
We met Kylie who was brilliant and so knowledgeable about the raptors and owls, also with the local birds such as the Nuthatches and gold crests etc that inhabit the woodland adjacent the birds of prey. Kylie was very patient and easy to understand, within a short time we were both flying the birds firstly an Harris Hawk then a Siberian Eagle Owl which was amazing. Kylie even managed to keep going and explain the birds personalities even though she had just been stung on her eyebrow by a wasp. We would definitely come back here again soon. Wayne and Heather.

My family and I had an absolutely magical time on a damp Scottish afternoon working with Kylie and her gorgeous "babies". She was so accommodating and patient with all of 9 us, to include my youngest who are 6 and 7 years old. The birds are absolutely delightful, and with the setting of the castle behind we all made memories we will not soon forget. It was truly the highlight of our family vacation and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you so much to the entire team!

We had a fabulous morning with Garath and the birds at the Shieldaig Hotel. The location is beautiful and perfect for flying these amazing creatures. Garath was very knowledgeable and informative. This was definitely a highlight of our visit to the Highlands! Thank you, Garath!

I am Caroline, age 11, and my family recently went to Scotland on vacation. The staff was very friendly! I got to fly Spud the kestrel and Genie the owl, and I loved it! The birds were so cute and soft and friendly! If ten stars was a rating, that's what I would rate Dalhousie Falconry!

What a great day out with a difference. My son Logan received you're junior falconry experience for his recent 10th birthday from his Grandparents. He enjoyed a wonderful afternoon led by Gareth flying Spud the kestrel followed by the lovely barn owl Jeannie. Gareth really made the children feel special and was a fountain of knowledge about all the birds on show. I would just like to say a huge thank you for a wonderful experience filled with lots of great memories for both adults and children.

The way the birds were cared for was very evident with the birds being calm and responsive. Gareth who led our experience was very informative and did not rush the interactions with the birds. All staff were keen to interact with us and talk about the birds, a very obvious passion.
It was a real hands on experience with each of us handling the birds repeated times.
