Auchingarrich Wildlife Park
Videos photos and information about the Auchingarrich wildlife park and farm centre near Crieff in Perthshire Scotland
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.

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.
Do visit the Torlum coffee shop for some tasty hot and cold snacks. Adjacent is the toilet and baby changing area.
