The Raptor Experience at Dalhousie Castle Estate in Midlothian

  • Learn about nature's best airborne predators
  • Get hands on with these formidable birds
  • A fun and educational experience
  • Set within the beautiful Dalhousie Castle Estate

At the start of your experience you will meet the falconers who will introduce you to the birds of prey.

Within the safe environment of the falconry centre you will learn to handle and fly one of these beautiful Raptors whilst taking in the stunning environs of Dalhousie Castle Estate. See the birds soaring in the sky, hunting for prey and swooping majestically low over the ground. The effortless way these rare birds fly is breathtaking.

Watch as the birds fly free from perches and trees, often following you wherever you walk, to swooping back onto your fist when called.

Once you’re flight session has ended you will be invited back to the weathering area and will be introduced to one of the other stunning raptors. Handling the bird you will understand how light and agile they have to be to fly effortlessly through the sky.

Throughout the experience the master falconers will ensure your enjoyment, talking you through what is happening, telling you about each birds unique personality and answering any questions you have.

The falconry centre is situated within the historic Dalhousie Castle estate in Midlothian. It offers fantastic accommodation for the birds and lots of open space in mature woodland to allow them to fly, giving visitors the ultimate experience.

The setup is designed to cater for small groups so as to give you a more personal experience with the birds.
