We visited here because the family likes dogs. What we saw was and amazing display of real farm like in Scotland. The ability of the shepard to control the dogs - and the ability of the dogs to control the sheet - was astounding. I learned more here and enjoyed this demonstration more than anything else in Scotland. The shepard... More

A very interesting presentation on working sheep dogs. Having seen a different presentation in Ireland, this one did not impress as much. However, if you have never seen these amazing dogs in action, it is well worth the stop.

We visit this area often and always try to make a point of visiting the farm. Over the years we have recommended to many family and friends too. The sheepdog demonstration never fails to impress us and the interaction and devotion between Neil and the dogs is wonderful. Afterwards there is an opportunity to feed the lambs and meet some...

Didn't really know what to expect when we traveled down the gravel road towards the farm - definitely didn't expect to see 3 tour busses and a bunch of cars waiting to see the dogs in action. I really can't find the words to describe the interaction between Neil and his working dogs - the use of voice, whistle and... More

The Working Sheepdogs at Kincraig are a brilliant end of day thing to impress adults and children alike. The way Neil Ross handles his dogs 9about ten of them) with voice commands to control quite a lot of sheep is good. Afterwards the children got to meet the puppies, which my grand daughters (three and six) loved. There was also... More
