Elite Falconry was conceived in 1998 in an effort to create a standard setting falconry centre of excellence in Scotland that would stick to the ethos of the word falconry – the art of hunting wild quarry in its natural state using a trained bird of prey.
As such, here at our centre in Fife we train hawks, falcons, eagles, vultures and owls to fly while retaining their natural instincts and independent behaviour.
This ensures your experience day, flying demonstration, corporate event or pest control services are of the very highest standard.
We enjoy a superb relationship with the Scottish SPCA both giving and developing new ideas to ensure we stay at the very forefront of raptor care and husbandry.
We also remember however, that many people may have the desire to handle, fly and work with raptors, but may not wish to go hunting.
We have ensured therefore that we train our birds to fly work and behave entirely naturally, but we can take you or your guest out on land that holds little or no game, ensuring you see fantastic flying birds, but do not have to go hunting to enjoy a wonderful time with birds of prey.
Our centre is not open to the general public. Everything we do is designed around our pre-booked guests having 100% of our attention for their experience and to focus their time to maximise the time spent handling and flying the birds they meet. For those who do wish to go hunting, we give your short training session and safety briefing on site, then take you in our Land Rovers to the hunting grounds to ensure a superb day of sport.
