Our original four boys came from Ardo Alpacas in Aberdeenshire. We are not alpaca breeders and have our boys purely as pets. Our experience is that you don't need to be a breeder and that a 'batchelor herd' can give much pleasure to the owner. We have 5 acres including our big garden and grazing for the boys, 15 miles north of Inverness, Scotland. I spin, knit, felt and crochet with the fleece from the boys.


Just a reminder that clicking on (most) of the photos will show them greatly enlarged.

A Hogmanay blogette!

It's been a real wintry week for the boys, everything from snow, sleet, rain and howling gales to contend with so the best thing for them to do was 'hunker down' and keep eating the hay.  When the sun did put in an appearance the favourite activity was to roll in the mud.  Gully has been wearing his mud pack for ages now and keeps adding to it when he can.
Not exactly Hester Blumental or Nick Nairn, more Robbie's Rations as the sugar beet gets  organised in the garage ready for the boys to slurp!
And finally, the last blog of 2012...............Hunkey Dunkey and his hens, the alpaca boys and the two coughing and sneezing humans at Tigh Mhor wish all blog readers a very happy and prosperous New Year.  Keep dry and take care - see you next year!


  1. Happy new year to your all, here's hoping it's a bit drier for us all!

  2. Happy New Year...tonight is one night you dont want to be dry...Cheers!!
