Farm Parks and Wildlife Parks in Scotland by public transport.

Hi all

Looking to gather information for a friend who would like to take their Children to see some Scottish Animals.

Do you have a farm park or wildlife park in your area which is easy to reach by public tranport?

Here in Aberdeen, we have which I know is a 15 minute walk from the 59 bus in Torry - have you done this? How practical is it for an under 5?

I know Camperdown in Dundee is a great option - how easy is it to reach by  bus from Aberdeen?


Based in the Scottish Borders, Aberdeenshire has a special place in my heart.

    Hi  There's a very good Wildlife Park at Kingussie which is situated in the Cairngorms National Park .
    Take the train from Aberdeen to Kingussie and then a bus or a Taxi to the park which is a further 4 miles.

    The Camperdown in Dundee is easy to reach by bus from Aberdeen. Firstly take a bus from Aberdeen to the centre of Dundee.  Then take a Number 23 or a 1A to the park that takes 15-20mins.

    Hope this is of some help!

    Hi there!

    The Stirling - Callander bus service has a scheduled stop very close to Blair Drummond Safari Park. From there, it's just a short walk to the safari park.

    Not a wildlife park as such but still a great family day out with interesting creatures to see, the Scottish Sealife Sanctuary near Oban is also reachable by bus, with local services stopping at the attractions. The 405 service runs regularly from Oban Station Square by local operator West Coast Motors, who also sell a bus ticket and attraction admission package.

    The Heads of Ayr Farm Park is a great day out!
    Great activities as well as loads of animals! Bus service 361 from Ayr will go past the park.
