Covering over 55 acres of countryside, the centre is home to fourteen species of deer from all over the world, Fife’s only wolf pack, otters and other rare breeds including the Scottish Wildcat. You can also come face to face with some amazing birds in the Raptor World Bird of Prey Centre. You’ll learn all about these amazing creatures and enjoy a day that is not only fun, but also provides a fascinating insight into the animal kingdom. More information about daily tours, feeding events, activities and dates can be found on the centre's website. After a busy day getting to know the animals, why not relax and unwind with afternoon tea in the café, or pick up a bargain at the woollen mill shop.Take a walk on the wild side and join The Scottish Deer Centre for a great day out the whole family will enjoy!

What a fantastic day. Lovely to get up so close to these beautiful creatures and how happy they all seem. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed here. Even managed a bit of retail therapy at the on-site farm shop and Edinburgh woolen mill.

I purchased the deal from groupon - £4 per adult. We had a great experience, somewhere we haven’t been before, lived beyond our expectations. Being able to freely feed the deer, the walkways were well mapped out. Very informative, enjoyable day. Highly recommend for families...More

according to their Facebook page, Santa is at the Centre as he has been in all previous years; I don't know about cost - you could call them and I am sure they would tell you.
