The Highland Wildlife Park

Back to Things to Do- A to Z

Forget the cute and cuddly, get cosy with tigers and bears

For more pics click here for the Highland Wildlife Park Photo Gallery

Just outside Kingussie at Kincraig in the Highlands of Scotland lives a bear (or two) some tigers, there's moose or two but not the hoose moose, deer, antelope, bison,buffalo, lamas, wolves and a panda but but not as we know it, but no wild haggis. If you want a great family day out you'll take yourself and your animal pack along to the Highland Wild Life Park.

In some areas of the park you stay strictly in your car, some areas you can stroll around freely, you will understand why when you get there.

So what will you see?


An Amur Tiger separated from it's lunch by a (substantial) sheet of perspex. Take a moment to reflect and look gobsmacked.

Did I mention a moose?


Polar Bears too, oh and a very, very brave little bird.


A Red Panda has a kip high up in a birch tree.


A Bactrian Camel with a profile like the Cairngorms


A Japanese Macaque


In the restaurant the wildlife looks real too but do not worry kids you're not on the menu, but the food is good, fortifying you for a long day seeing amazing  animal sights.


All in all the Highland Wildlife Park Represents a fab day out when the fish aren't biting. Get up close to and personal with some of the most stunning creatures in the world. If you want to see a scary sight watch out  for the tigers clawing at the perspex sheet gnashing their teeth at you, ripping at the perspex screen with claws like razors.

Animal magic!
