Meet the masters of the skies


This May meet the masters of the skies at the Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend!

Join us in Braemar where the magnificent birds of prey will be on display for you to see close up, then watch as they perform two swooping aerial demonstrations showing of their mastery of the skies. Marra, the celebrity sea eagle will be joined by her friends for a truely soaring experience right at the heart of the BIG Weekend!

Watch as Marra takes to the winds and gives us a perfect birds eye view over Mar Lodge, here in the Cairngorms National Park.

Who is Elite Falconry?

Elite Falconry was conceived in 1998 in an effort to create a standard setting falconry centre of excellence in Scotland that would stick to the ethos of the word falconry – the art of hunting wild quarry in its natural state using a trained bird of prey. As such, at their centre in Fife Elite Falconry train hawks, falcons, eagles, vultures and owls to fly while retaining their natural instincts and independent behaviour. This ensures your falconry experience is of the very highest standard.

Elite Faloncry enjoy a superb relationship with the Scottish SPCA both giving and developing new ideas to ensure they stay at the very forefront of raptor care and husbandry. They also remember however, that many people may have the desire to handle, fly and work with raptors, but may not wish to go hunting. Therefore they have ensured that they train their birds to fly work and behave entirely naturally, but they can take people out onto land that holds little or no game, ensuring you see fantastic flying birds, but do not have to go hunting to enjoy a wonderful time with birds of prey.

The Elite Falconry centre is not open to the general public. Everything they do is designed around our pre-booked guests having 100% of our attention for their experience and to focus their time to maximise the time spent handling and flying the birds they meet.
