The Scottish Wool Centre
The Scottish Wool Centre is just 5 minutes from the site, in Aberfoyle. The Centre is situated at the end of the cycle track and shares a car park with the supermarket in the centre of town. It has many activities in peak season, including the Gathering, a three times daily dog and duck show, where a shepherd will give you a history of Scottish sheep and work his dog ‘on hand’ with Indian Runner ducks.
You can also wander around our outside paddocks where there are rare breeds of sheep, goats plus the miniature horses, Calamity and Merlin.
If birds are your interest, there is a birds of prey area, fan tailed doves in the dovecot, plus a pond area with various breeds of hens for you to see or to buy.
More active visitors can play crazy golf or enjoy the kid’s park, next to the beer garden. There is also a large retail area with something for everyone, from cashmere, Harris Tweed, country and casual wear plus many gifts to take home including a large range of whisky in the food and whisky hall.
