One of the many beautiful Owls at The Scottish Owl Centre

Inspired by  family visits to various bird of prey centers  Rod Angus and his wife, Niccy, founded the Scottish Owl Centre with a small collection of captive-bred owls in 2003.

The Scottish Owl Centre is home to about 100 owls from 40 species from around the world.


Rod explains:

“The S.O.C. is not a falconry centre. We specialise in owls rather than raptors, because we want to portray their unique charisma and charm, which is often eclipsed beside the more dramatic hawks and falcons.”
