Animal experience hosted by Beccy

  1. 90 mins
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Feed and stroke gorgeous Herdwick sheep.
Good fun for groups, great for couples. Over 16s

You will enjoy a traditional tea in the garden looking at our panoramic views. Our hilarious pet sheep will come and join you for cuddles and a bit of naughtiness and trying to eat all the wrong things.. When you have finished your home-made cakes , you will take the sheep to their barn and give them their tea and a goodbye stroke. A special feeling.. If we have new lambs there might be the chance to give them a bottle of milk too. You will enter the secret world of sheep- a wholesome joy
(If you want a mindful sheepy retreat https://abnb.me/2QSG32rPJjb for sheepy sleepovers)
Hens will come to see you too. Animals are unpredictable and untrained. Bring a sense of humour and a camera. Please don't film and feed at the same time- they like your full attention and I will ask for some phone-free periods to experience the Mindfulness of your new flock.

Masks will be worn to arrive under Airbnb guidlines and I ask you to respect any Scotgov changes.
Please cancel with as much notice as possible if you have symptoms.

I recommend walking from the village to the location, 25 mins but you can drive the rough stone farm track of 1k.

This is an outdoor experience in the Trossachs & Loch Lomond National Park.
Dress warmly and ready for quick changes of weather

Chose to try something new to celebrate my wife’s birthday and this experience was more than either of us could have imagined. We LOVED connecting with Beccy and her lovable sheep. We really appreciated that it was more than just a “sheep petting” but rather an educational and centering experience getting to connect with other people and with the animals.

An absolutely one of a kind experience. Beccy is a wonderful host and has a truly beautiful relationship with the sheep. Great food and a gorgeous environment. Couldn't recommend it more.

What a lovely experience! Beccy is an excellent host, her home and property are stunning, and of course the sheep were very naughty and cute.

An awesome experience had while exploring Scotland. A gentle introduction to sheep, body language, and all about them before meeting, feeding and petting the lovely boys! Their personalities were allowed to shine through in this intimate setting. Wonderful :)

Picture an open wooden shelter on an umbrageous countryside, pay attention to the sound of the rain and the smell of the grass, have a look at the dramatic fall colours, what could be better? 4 lovely sheep and a traditional delicious home made tea in this enchanted garden. To recommend 100% with a special mention for the rain which was kind of magic actually!
