The Scottish Owl Centre is located in Polkemmet Country Park, in Whitburn. Opening here in 2012, it has been a popular attraction for people near and far to visit. You can find owls from all over the world here and it’s great to see them up close. Learning about all the different owls and facts about where they are from and also seeing how they range in size and colours will definitely keep the kids entertained on a family day out.

The Scottish Owl Centre has over 100 owls and is split up into different sections including “Best of the British”, “The Boreal Forest” and also “The North Pole”, just to name a few. You also need to make sure you check out the flying displays, as they really are awesome! When we visited there were a couple flying displays per day and both were different. I’m unsure how they differ now due to COVID, but I am sure they will still be interesting to see.

There is a small picnic area within the old walls of the former mansion house or you can find the perfect spot in the main Country Park. There is an onsite cafe which is run separately from the Owl Centre, so make sure you check them out separately as their opening hours may be different.
