What is Arran Alpacas?

Welcome to Arran Alpacas! Our fun & engaging trekking experiences with our loveable alpacas are accessible for all - there are options for every group size (and age)!

Experiences We Offer:

Meet, Greet & WEE Trek (60 mins)

Meet, Greet & BIG Trek (90 mins)

Playtime with the Alpacas (90 mins) - School holidays only

Treks begin with meeting our alpacas, feeding them and learning some fascinating facts. Enjoy a WEE or BIG trek which involves leading an alpaca around our farm and surrounding fields. Playtime with the alpacas is aimed at younger children who can enjoy playing at our park with a small feeding session.
