Life on the Farm

Donald and Ailsa Currie farm at Bellevue Farm with help from their young sons Donald jnr (11) and Andrew (6). Young Donald is the 7th generation of Donald Currie to farm on Arran.

The farm is a traditional beef and sheep farm and offers visitors a happy and friendly atmosphere. There is always something different going on depending on the time of year and children are welcome to join in and help with day to day activities throughout the farming year.

Children are free to play within the gardens surrounding the cottages but should be accompanied by an adult when walking through the farm yard.
