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.

Soggy blog!

It's been a bit of a 'driech' week with heavy rain and mist although thankfully by the end of the week it had cleared up a bit.  Wee Eck with his ears like radar scanners approaches out of the gloom to see what is going on.
The rest of the gang are equally unimpressed by the elements with Fergus and his wet knees in front.
Always camera shy, Faro gives the photographer the 'tail in the air' sign that he's alert.
 Fyta likes to show off his haughty look.  A damp looking Fidget is in the background.
Remember that it doesn't rain for ever, Gaucho!
Gully - he just loves having a roll when he is soaking wet.
And finally...........couldn't finish without a final Wee Eck photo of the dripping fringe!


  1. Not great photo weather, but great shots all the same.

  2. Atmospheric! dreech, all the same.

  3. You certainly bring out the "characters" of those chaps for your readers! Hope the sun comes out again soon boys!

  4. Hope they are back to fluffy again soon !
