Fernvalley is the most northerly wildlife centre in the UK, located in the stunning Orkney Islands in the far north of Scotland.

The centre specialises in offering a safe, loving, forever home to animals that have been abused or abandoned. We also take in surplus animals that are looking for new homes from zoos and wildlife centres.

We have a variety of animals here at the centre from geckos and snakes to mice, meerkats and ring-tailed lemur!

Many of our animals have come to us through various rescue centres across the UK and at Fernvalley we offer them a home for life. 

We are proud to be the most northerly wildlife centre in the UK.

So come and take a walk on the wild side with us and get up close and personal with a snake, take the tunnel into our meerkat enclosure for a unique view of our three little troublemakers, watch our spiny mice as they explore their runs or simply enjoy a slice of homemade cake and a fresh coffee in our cosy, country tearoom. 

Have fun and be inspired at Fernvalley Wildlife Centre
