25 years of Highland Safaris!

One of Perthshire’s best loved Visitor Attractions, Highland Safaris in Aberfeldy, celebrates its 25th Birthday this year!
With an old Series 1 Land Rover and some home produced leaflets for ‘Glenlyon Wildlife Safaris’ (as it was then), a young Donald Riddell stepped out to share his passion for nature and wildlife with
visitors to the area, hoping that they would be inspired. Indeed they were inspired – 25 years on, Highland Safaris has been voted the Best Visitor Experience in Scotland (among many industry accolades), achieved 5 Star Visitor Attraction status, and receives in the region of 50,000 visitors each year.
During those 25 years, Donald and his wife Julie (one of his first customers!) have created inspiring ways for visitors to engage with nature while setting a benchmark for excellent customer service and
continuously looking for ways to improve and add to their already inspiring offering.
Today, visitors to Highland Safaris can enjoy a full day out even if they don’t step inside a vehicle.
Highland Safaris Café, Gift Shop, Gold & Gem Panning Centre, BiketraX course and Mountain Bike hire are all major reasons for visits to Highland Safaris. In 2014, Scotland’s newest wildlife attraction,
the Red Deer Centre, was opened and has surpassed all expectations to date.
What’s next? Hilltop events and a creative new food offering in the newly upgraded Schiehallion Mountain Bothy! Watch this space…
