Overview

Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre is located in a natural woodland. With purpose built housings, it is an ideal setting for nearly 40 Birds of Prey & Owls. The centre is home to over 20 Owls, representing every native species as well as unique or unusual species from other parts of the world. See "Orla", the magnificent Golden Eagle. And learn of our successes in rehabilitation of wild Birds of Prey & Owls. The education cabin provides a comfortable environment to learn about our residents. Full of information and displays of eggs, skulls and feathers. Children (and adults) can complete the quiz sheets or colour in sheets of our various birds. An educational day out for all ages, and a chance to relax in wonderful surroundings.

What a fantastic place to visit as a family, considering the size of the centre there was certainly plenty to see. Although no expert the birds looked magnificent! Thank you.
