What you'll do
Join Graeme, me and our 4-legged family in this alpaca experience on a real working Angus farm! It is a truly unique opportunity to find out how lovely alpacas are and what daily life is like on a Scottish farm throughout the Seasons. On arrival at Newton Farm, you will be welcomed into our heated cabin and once introductions are made we will cover the health and safety for all visitors before your inspiring experience begins. This bespoke tour takes approximately 1.5 hours, please let us know of any specific requests you have. The tour involves meeting our friendly alpacas, getting up close and personal with them, hand feeding and leading your alpaca on a walk across the farmland. Includes refreshments. Our standard farm tour is dog friendly but please note alpacas do not like canines so you are unable to take a dog with you during an alpaca experience.
