It is the only of its kind in Scotland and has opened at Blair Drummond Safari Park.

Attendees are warned to keep their windows shut as the monkeys are known to get into mischief.

The monkeys are known as the Middle Hill Troop and were moved to the park from Gibraltar late last year, where they had been causing problems for local residents, according to previous BBC reports.

To mark the opening of the reserve and as a bit of fun for the monkeys, a photo opportunity was staged to show what can happen and as a reminder for visitors to remain in their cars with their windows, doors and luggage racks firmly shut.

To mark the opening of the reserve, the park held a demonstration to show what can happen to visitors who do not secure their windows, doors and luggage racks. The monkeys wasted no time in finding out what visitors had inside their luggage.
