CALLANISH ALPACAS is a family run alpaca visitor centre located directly on the Hebridean Way in sight of Callanish Stones on the Isle of Lewis. We are open on a Sunday…and serve fish and chips and much more!
CALLANISH ALPACAS (www.facebook.com/callanishalpacas) offers booked feeding visits/animal tours (via the Facebook page) and drop-in visits.
Booked visits involve feeding our 6 alpacas and a tour of the other animals...37 quirky chickens, 45 amusing ducks, 2 peacocks, 3 smiling goats and 4 sheep with a difference! All 90+ have names!
The animals are our pets so we can only offer a maximum of one feeding visit per day but you may view all the animals and take photos anytime during opening hours. If you are visiting the island and have specific dates which are not available, please message us.
Outdoor footwear and clothing recommended!
No charge but voluntary donations are welcomed.

Opening hours - April to August : Wednesday to Sunday 11am - 5pm

MOLLANS CAFÉ at Callanish Alpacas serves award winning fish and chips (and more), home baking and hot/cold drinks each Friday/Saturday 4 - 7.30pm and Sunday midday - 4pm! All the food is homemade and cooked by Rachel and Julie to order. Much of it is gluten-free including the batter. Ethical considerations including never using palm oil and virtually 100% recyclable waste are uppermost. Opening hours are seasonal and extended from April to September.
