Donald and Ailsa Currie farm at Bellevue Farm, on the idyllic west coast of Arran close to the village of Blackwaterfoot, with help from their young children Donald jnr and Andrew. Young Donald is the 7th generation of Donald Currie to farm on Arran. The farm is a traditional beef and sheep farm and offers visitors a happy, friendly and authentic atmosphere. There is always something different going on depending on the time of year.
Tours take place in and around our farmyard at Bellevue Farm, Blackwaterfoot. A great activity for children and parents alike. Our visitors are taken for a relaxed walk round our working farm and will meet our farm animals along the way. We’ve also got a few special friends in the form of our donkeys – Hamish & Murphy, Tabitha, our miniature Shetland pony, highland cows, chicks, rabbits, ducks and hens – and Benita, Granada and Eriskay, our cuddly alpacas. You can see machinery, tractors and hear the story of real life on an island farm.
The nature of the tour depends upon the season, weather and conditions at the time – every day on the farm is different!
Visitors will be taken as part of a group and are encouraged to get up close and be involved but need only do what they are comfortable with.
Tours normally last for 1.5 to 2 hours and we are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
