Borders Historic Route
Step into an indoor tropical rainforest and enjoy the sight of hundreds of jewel coloured butterflies fluttering around you at Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World. Wander around the paths in this tropical hothouse and count how many different types of butterfly you can spot. As well as the butterflies in the hothouse you’ll also see snakes, iguanas, fish, tarantulas and even glowing scorpions. Listen to a butterfly talk from the keepers, take part in animal handling and see the fish and terrapins being fed.
