Farm Tours & Alpaca Trekking on the Isle of Arran: Fun for the Whole Family

The Isle of Arran, with its stunning landscapes and diverse terrain, is an ideal destination for animal lovers of all ages. With two opportunities on your doorstep to engage, feed and learn about a variety of farm animals, you are guaranteed a hands-on and memorable experience for all the family. 


Arran Alpacas 

Located at Balmichael in Shiskine, and only a 10 minute drive away, since 2019 owners Emma and Tom Jessop have been offering a fantastic experience to learn all about their alpacas (as well as a few of their other furry animals too!) They have two different experiences on offer, from a 60 minute alpaca trek where you get to look after your own alpaca to special Alpaca events, run over the Easter & Summer holidays and are ideal for children. With a large outdoor play area and a games room full of exciting activities, there is lots to keep the young ones entertained! To find out more or to book one of their treks or events to meet Dougal, Clyde, Gordie, Wallace and the rest of the gang visit their website at www.arranalpacas.co.uk


Bellevue Farm 

Bellevue is a sixth-generation, family run, working farm located just under a 15 minute drive away in Blackwaterfoot. Donald and Ailsa Currie invite you to come and learn about life on a farm and to purchase some of their delicious produce! Split into two unique opportunities, you can choose a guided farm tour, with a hands-on experience of feeding the animals and helping with daily farm jobs, like collecting eggs! There is also a self-guided farm experience, which allows you to explore the farm, including the animals and machinery at your leisure. They also have a dedicated outdoor picnic and play area for you to enjoy a spot of lunch or an ice cream once you’ve finished exploring the farm. The experience doesn’t end at the farm and you can buy high quality home-reared pork, goat and lamb meat, and eggs too!
