Rothiemurchus Falconry is now offering the chance to experience a breath-taking, free flying, bird of prey display in the heart of the Cairngorm national park. This experience is suitable for everyone!
Set within the Rothiemurchus estate you will be seated in our flying arena and introduced to the birds while they demonstrate their natural behaviours. Get to know their individual personalities, learn interesting facts about them and their conservation status. You will have the chance to see birds of prey from around the world ranging from a small and mighty owl to a huge, empowering eagle and even the fastest animal on the planet! Our birds will be flying in and amongst the audience with inches to spare allowing for a thrilling experience of being up close and personal to these amazing creatures.
After your flying display you will have the chance to meet our very special, resident Livestock guardian dogs and flock of sheep who play an important role in our ambitious White tailed eagle project.
