Plan Your Visit

Please note, that as of 1/1/17, dogs and other pets are no longer 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:


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

Loch Insh Watersports Centre has a dog friendly café (bar and balcony only) and is approximately 3.5 miles from the Highland Wildlife Park.
