These long necks can be troublesome… This morning Apollo bolted his breakfast too fast (probably had two bowls, knowing him) and ended up getting some lodged in his throat. This is known as ‘choke’ and causes them to cough as they try to regurgitate it, foam at the mouth, and drool excessively as they can’t swallow their saliva. It’s quite distressing to watch. It usually rights itself in a short time with no intervention. But today, poor Apollo was choking for 4 hours! He was calm and still wandering with the herd, but obviously trying to shift it. I was just about to call the vet when he seemed to clear it by himself. Phew! Then he just wanted his dinner, so he got sloppy warm sugarbeet as he’ll no doubt have a sore throat after all the retching. Poor Apollo!

What better way to celebrate the kids going back to school on Monday than getting out for a bit of fresh air with an alpaca! January treks are by request rather than scheduled, so may not be on regular days, but there is one available to book online on Monday 8th January.

As the sun sets on another year, we’d like to wish all of our friends and customers a very happy new year. We hope it’s alpaca’d with fun! Thanks for all your visits in 2023. Special thanks to for these beautiful photos of Cosmic and Chaos. Pop over and follow his page for some great pics!

We had to cancel yesterday’s trek’s due to the rain, so added a trek tomorrow so people could reschedule. As not everyone could make it, there are a few spaces at 11am. It’s looking like the driest day of the week, so if you fancy taking advantage of the last availability this year, get booked on!

Merry Christmas to all our followers. Thank you to everyone who has visited us over the last year, and made our wee business viable, meaning I can spend quality time with my fluffy boys, and can afford to treat them like the little kings that they are! We look forward to seeing you all in 2024 🦙😃

Last post for pre-Christmas delivery has gone out this morning, so any vouchers ordered now will not be delivered before Christmas. However, a print out of the booking confirmation is enough, so if you’re looking for a last minute gift, head to the website to book a voucher 💝

If you haven’t been lucky enough to get a space at our Festive Alpaca sessions this Sunday, come and sing carols with the horses in Dores instead!

Come and join in the fun but please obey signs and stewards to keep people safe from the horses. All for a good cause.

Due to a cancellation we have 7 spaces available for a Festive Hot Chocolate with the Alpacas at 1.45pm on Saturday. So if you’re looking for some festive family fun this weekend (also jingle trek availability on Sunday) snap them up before they’re gone.

Join us on our Jingle Trek at 1115 on Sunday. Hopefully Apollo will be wearing his Santa hat properly as we wander down to the beach to have a hot chocolate after you’ve done carrot kisses and taken lots of great photos! Head to the website to book on!

Nosey boys! 👃 Always following me around the field when I’m cleaning up, just incase I have any carrots in my pockets!

We had such fun today at our festive ‘Hot chocolate with the alpacas’ feeding sessions. We also enjoyed hot chocolate on the beach as the sun went down, on our ‘Jingle Trek’ (sorry - I was enjoying the view too much to remember to take photos!). We are fully booked tomorrow, but have a few limited spaces next weekend, so come and join us!

I’ve had so many people messaging to ask if we’re doing treks between Christmas and new year. We had originally planned to be closed for family time but have decided to do a few treks so the boys can burn off their Christmas dinners! We will be trekking on 27th and 30th December, and 2nd January. Spaces are limited so please book online assp if you’re looking for something to do over the holidays 🎄🦙💝

What a dreich day! But animals need looking after whatever the weather. Today was the winter pamper day for the boys. 96 toenails were checked, cleaned and trimmed, 12 fringes were snipped and everyone got a monthly dose of vitamins to make up for the lack of daylight at this time of year. There was also a bit of poking and prodding through their thick fleece to bodyscore them to make sure they’re maintaining a healthy shape. We need them to be in good condition now so that they cope ok with the leaner winter months. There’s not as much nutrition in the grass now, so it’s important they have free access to hay, and a little extra food each day. Our boys have worked hard this season so they deserve a little pampering 💅 ✂️ 🥰

Despite the rain we had a great first day of Festive Meet & Greets and Jingle Treks. We were very grateful for our new cosy shelter to keep the rain showers off our heads, and the hot chocolate to keep us warm. There are a few spaces left over the coming weeks, so snap them up before they’re gone!

One of my oldest and dearest friends is visiting from Australia, so came on an alpaca trek this afternoon. I paired her with little Luno - like her, he is diminutive in size, blonde, and a little bit cheeky. He was sporting his elf ears today too! A perfect pair. And it looks like they got on like a house on fire!

I’ve been a busy bee at Loch Ness Alpacas today! The Alpaca Shack is finally finished (thanks to talented and handsome husband!) and we’re decorated and ready for our festive sessions tomorrow. We have some alpaca themed bits for sale in the Shack if you’d like to take home a wee souvenir of your visit, but there is absolutely no obligation to buy. See you soon 🎄 🦙

A morning of frosty fluffy bums! But it shows how incredibly insulating alpaca fleece is. It’s a hollow fibre so traps heat. The cold doesn’t get anywhere near the alpacas skin so they stay toasty warm. It doesn’t stop the spoiled boys from getting a hot bran mash breakfast though
