We also like to have a bit of Scottish banter and try to make the time here enjoyable. You will be staying in an ensuite room usually used for bed and breakfast. Meals will be with us in the farmhouse kitchen. I am happy to answer any queries you may have.We have mostly Cheviot cross Border Leicester ewes mated with Texels and a Suffolk plus some pet Zwartbles. We lamb indoors and have PTZ cameras to watch them. Over the years we have had many helpers staying at lambing. They have loved watching the ewes on the screen. It is very interesting to see how they behave when no-one is there and learning the signs of imminent lambing. I enjoy teaching and try to follow best practice. Helpers become very knowledgeable about the different situations. 90 ewes are enough to give variety and experience without being too rushed.
