We have been lucky enough to arrange a very special Airds Bespoke Guest Display.
Participate in your own personal flying display, thrill as falcons fly and stoop so close to you that you can hear the wind in their wings, be amused and enthralled by the comical antics of the owls and the awesome agility and intelligence of the Harris Hawks.
A meet and greet with the birds showing their different characters and personalities, either before or during your display.
Located in the hotels grounds, within the shore gardens, overlooking the stunning backdrop of Loch Linnhe. Ideal for some memorable photographs, try and capture some action shots, particularly of the falcons!
Open only to guests of Airds, a bespoke, personal display lasting about an hour aiming to fly falcons, owls and Harris Hawks.
Prices from £120 for a private display for your party.
Alternatively if you would prefer to join a larger party then this can equally be arranged. Please read the following
