The Scottish Deer Centre is set in the Fife countryside and covers over 55 acres. Our collection includes 14 species of Deer from around the world, Fife's only Wolf pack, Otters and other rare Scottish species including the Wildcat. We also host Raptor World Bird of Prey centre! 

Spend a day at the SDC looking at our many species with Play areas inside and out for the children, Ranger tours and daily Bird of Prey shows.

In the entrance courtyard you’ll find our cosy and inviting café, serving delicious light meals, home baking, freshly ground coffee and a selection of teas. Having fun is hungry work, so there is always a great kids menu on offer too.

Situated in our extensive retail area, The Edinburgh Woollen Mill collections offer a superb choice of contemporary and classic ladies’, men’s and children’s clothing, which cater for every occasion from casual to formal wear. The products offer excellent value for money – from the natural fibres and half-price cashmere EWM is renowned for, to exciting new collections, gifts, and accessories.

In The Deer Centre gift shop there's an array of quality souvenirs and memorabilia to take a little piece of your day home with you. From cuddly toys to ornaments and sweets, there's an ideal gift here for anyone.

In our luxurious Highland Smokehouse you will find the finest of traditional Scottish goods, including preserves, wines, beers and a fantastic range of quality single malts and blended whiskies. You'll be able to make the right selection from our range with FREE whisky tastings.
