Fabulous wonderful visit. Feeding the red deer. Allowing my daughter Tandanya to meet her Scottish cousins Rua and Zoom. Up close with the glorious barn owl. And a magnificent cafe I would travel to visit on its own. And lovely laughing staff. Spectacular fun.

Highland Safari is more about wildlife and red deer. Perthshire is stunning and there will be "fishing yay river"as you ask probably closeby
