Scottish Wool Centre

Stirling | Aberfoyle | Wildlife attraction | ★★

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.
