ALPACA YOUR BAGS and extend your stay on our magical island! Arran Alpacas is based on our rustic and sustainable glamping site which was once a thriving farm.

Alpaca Events!

We can't wait to offer more family friendly events following our successful Christmas 2020 event.

As soon as we can safely provide such fun events, we will let you know!!

Events are planned based on current legislation and government guidance in relation to COVID-19.
