RZSS Highland Wildlife Park has been voted the best family day out at the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards.
Voted for by the public, the awards recognise leading outdoor and leisure attractions which give their customers amazing experiences and help strengthen Scotland’s reputation as one of the world’s top travel destinations.
The park was announced as the winner at a ceremony in Glasgow on 28 September.
Daska Mackintosh, the park’s Head of Operations and Visitors Services, said, “We are thrilled to have been voted the best family day out in Scotland.
“It is a lovely way to celebrate the incredibly busy year we have had so far, with a record number of visitors already.
“In December we were delighted to welcome the birth of Hamish, the UK’s only polar bear cub, which has led to a dramatic rise in people coming to the park. There have been many more new arrivals at the park this year, including Scottish wildcat kittens, adding to the fascinating conservation story we have to tell.
“We pride ourselves in offering a very enjoyable experience and it is wonderful to see our team’s hard work being recognised with such a prestigious national award.”
