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.
