Scottish Wool Centre

Stirling | Aberfoyle | Wildlife attraction | ★★

[Scottish Wool Centre]

The Scottish Wool Centre in Aberfoyle is largely just a rather large shop - and so a type of tourist attraction which we don't regularly write about on Scotland Off the Beaten Track. But for 6 months each year the centre runs low key but nevertheless entertaining livestock demonstrations, 3 times daily. If you happen to be visiting the village at the right time, they're well worth hoofing it across the road to; the demonstrations are also free, as presumably the staff are looking to fleece you in the shop instead. The Gathering - as the show is called - features Indian runner ducks being herded around various obstacles by sheepdogs. As might be expected for a wool centre, there are also a variety of different breeds of sheep to lock horns with, as well as goats, horses, hens and doves.
