Thursday Adam and I travelled to Aviemore for a weekend break to celebrate his Birthday. The weather was stunning as we drove up north.

Yesterday we decided to spend the day at the Highland Wildlife Park as we have never been before. Its a Wildlife park which helps endangered animals, so it is a great cause and a wonderful experience.

You start off driving through a mini reserve with camels..

It was such a wonderful day seeing all these beautiful animals and learning about how and why they are endangered. Lets hope they don’t become extinct, support this amazing park by donating or visiting.

You can also help by adopting one of the animals! 😀
