Discover exciting Falconry experiences
The Falconry Mews at Dalhousie Castle are now widely acknowledged to provide the finest falconry packages in Scotland.
The Owl Encounter
An experience ideal for those who love these unique and mysterious birds of prey.
Falconry and Archery
Scottish falconry was an essential pastime of the nobility and would have been practiced on horseback within the grounds of Dalhousie Castle. It was common to organise hunting with hawks trips as a way of entertaining important guests, who would frequently bring their own falcons and falconers with them.
Falconry has returned to Dalhousie Castle at the award-winning on-site mews, just 2 minutes walk from the Castle itself. Dalhousie Castle Falconry provides a selection of exciting falconry packages within the Castle grounds, as well as Hunting with Hawks days in the Scottish countryside. We are pleased to offer a selection of specialised packages for weddings and corporate groups, such as Wedding Ring Deliveries by owl and Teambuilding days.
Dalhousie Castle Falconry welcomes children and we are disabled friendly.
Dalhousie Castle Archery
Archery is the most recent addition to our activities – another ancient sport of kings which is fun, educational and competitive. Pre-booking is essential and can be combined with a Falconry experience. Our reception area with a view looking over the weathering lawn provides a relaxing area to make your booking.
As well as our selection of packages, we are always happy to offer bespoke packages tailored to meet your every requirement. Please discuss your needs with one of our Falconers who will be happy to help you. Bookings can be made by telephone, email, or in person at the Mews with our friendly and professional team of Falconers. You can check what to wear and our cancellation policy here.
