Hear of witches, cannibals, murders, thieves, body snatchers, blood thirsty mobs and the devil in disguise.

You even get a chance to knock on Bloody Mackenzie's door, if you dare! Madam McKinnon will guide you through our streets under cover of darkness. She's been dead for almost 200 years and does not take kindly to modern nonsense. She will however, crack your sides with laughter over her dry Scottish wit.

Weather permitting we will then meet the main herd, observing the special herd bond that you now share. This gives you a chance to stretch your legs and see a bit more of the farm and the beautiful landscape. The Experience of making close contact with this proud but affectionate breed of animals will remain with you for a long time, and also equip you with entry-level understanding of how to establish an understanding with another species.
