During a stay at Crieff Hydro Hotel we visited the gem that is Auchingarrich Wildlife Park. It's a great place for young and old and offers the rare chance to hand feed lemurs and get up close to these gentle creatures. Other animals can be hand fed and bags of food are available to buy at the entrance and gift shop. Feeding times with the zoo keepers are displayed here so that you can plan your visit.

The keepers allow you to get up close to the lemurs and feed them their vegetable and fruit mixture. This is great fun and it is surprising just how gentle these creatures take them from either your open palm of from your fingers.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Other animals in this farm and wildlife centre ar Comrie in Perthshire, just a short drive from Crieff include llamas, pigs, meerkats, sheep, otters, chickens, porcupines, peacocks, white doves, ducklings, chicks, tortoises and goats.

There are plenty of interactive opportunities for children and young at heart adults which includes learning how to milk a cow using a special model, learning about the stages of egg and chick growth in the hatchery which includes handling sessions and several activity centres for youngsters to burn off their excess energy. We loved the look of the toy tractor circuits next to one of the play barns.
