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!
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...lots of unusual chickens, 21 Indian runner ducks, 2 peacocks, 3 smiling goats and 3 sheep with a difference! All 80+ animals 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 September to March : Friday, Saturday, Sunday 11am - 4pm.
Toilet and hand washing facilities, free wi-fi and USB charging points are available.
MOLLANS CAFÉ at Callanish Alpacas serves award winning fish and chips (and more), home baking and hot/cold drinks each Friday/Saturday midday - 7.30pm and Sunday midday - 4pm! All the food is homemade and cooked by Rachel and Julie to order. The chips are hand-cut. Much of it is gluten-free including the batter. Ethical considerations including never using palm oil and virtually 100% recyclable waste are uppermost.
