Balthazar testing out our disabled access toilet - access for all!

At Bowbridge Alpacas Scotland we believe everyone should have the opportunity to meet and fall in love with alpacas. With this in mind our aim is to be accessible to all. 

Please let us know of any mobility needs before your visit so that we can prepare for your visit appropriately - such as having the alpacas in a closer paddock. We are wheelchair accessible although there is an element of uneven ground, with a disabled toilet on site. We are also dementia, autism and ADHD friendly, however we know that not all access requirements fit into a single label so please let us know before your visit if you have any access requirements or you would like to ask a question.

Our Alpaca Experiences are suitable for pregnant women. There are no particular additional risks that you will encounter during the Alpaca Experience. As with all our visitors we would encourage you to thoroughly wash your hands after touching or feeding the alpacas. There is a standard risk of trips and falls but we are fully enclosed so you could let go of your alpaca if at all necessary. You can let us know you're pregnant before your visit (confidentially if required) and we will ensure to give you our calmest alpacas for walking. 

Babies and toddlers are welcome although we recommend the use of slings/carriers over prams. There must be one adult per child under 12 years old for health and safety reasons. We would recommend the 1hr Alpaca Experience rather than the 2hr for very young children although we have had many babies and toddlers enjoy the 2hr. Please make sure they are wrapped up warm!

 

Our farm visits are all bespoke to the individual needs of our visitors so get in contact to arrange your visit now.
