(valid from 24 March 2016)
Did you know that the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland which runs the Park is a charity? As of 6th April 2006, the government changed the law on Gift Aid and we can only claim Gift Aid if you make a donation that is 10% more than the entry fee.
If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a donation that is 10% more than the entry fee, the government will give us an extra 25% on top of your donation. It makes a massive difference to attractions like the Highland Wildlife Park.

Dog owners -
Please note, that as of 1/1/17, dogs and other pets will not be permitted into Highland Wildlife Park, including the car park. We are a conservation charity and animal welfare is central to everything that we do. Pets may be a source of stress to some of the animals in our collection and we also want to prevent any welfare issues associated with leaving animals in cars. There are a number of quality kennel facilities in the local area that we would be happy to recommend.
Fully trained guide dogs and other registered assistance dogs are permitted in most areas of the Park. Assistance dogs in training are not permitted to enter.
Local kennel facilities:
Aviemore Dog training
Provides dog daycare for holiday makers
The Glebe Kennels,
Boat of Garten
Birchmoor Cattery & Kennels,
If you are looking for suitable dog walking areas nearby you can try the Speybank walk at Kincraig or the Speyside Way/Badenoch way near the Loch Insh Watersports Centre. Both Kingussie and Newtonmore have a good variety of walks. For more information visit www.walkhighlands.co.uk
Loch Insh Watersports Centre has a dog friendly café (bar and balcony only) and is approximately 3.5 miles from the Highland Wildlife Park.
Warning: leaving your dog in your vehicle during hot weather can cause extreme suffering and even death. Please be aware that dogs can die if left in a car even on a warm day. In a vehicle, the heat from the sun is intensified through the glass. Your dog will pant to try to cool down, which can lead to severe dehydration and hyperventilation.
Opening a window or leaving a bowl of water is not enough, so please, when possible, leave your dog at home and make adequate arrangements for feeding and exercise needs.
Causing an animal unnecessary suffering is an offence which can result in a fine and even a ban from owning animals. If you are aware of an animal in distress, please call the Scottish SPCA on 03000 999 999.
