    Highland cow extravaganza
    I took guests I had on a Scottish tour and they had an absolutely amazing time with Stuart and Christine. So informative and passionate about the Highland Cows and the farm. Getting up close and personal with the cows and even a cute little calf called Maggie May. This was an amazing experience that I’ll be recommending to all our guests at Braw Scottish Tours.

    Outstanding!
    We (3 adults) had the highlight of our trip to Scotland in the tour of this farm! Jon was so very accommodating, knowledgeable and pleasant! He gave us s grand tour of the hills, the highland cattle, including a tea on Loch Awe! We had the extra delight of our visit coinciding with a vet visit and we could observe him ministering to several animals! The ‘coos’ were adorable and Jon’s tour impeccable. I cannot recommend this enough.

    A uniquely Scottish experience
    I cannot recommend a tour here highly enough. The property is gorgeous, with outstanding views over Loch Awe. The owners are gracious and knowledgeable, and the cows are wonderful. We had an amazing time on our tour.

    Must-do-experience
    This is not just a visit to see the Highland Cattle. You get insight into the workings of the farm, breeding, rearing, and economics. You also learn about the interesting history of the estate, the surrounding lands, and you might also get to pet some pet rescue sheep! Lyra's (6) favorite was riding in the tractor with Stuart as our six-person group was towed in a spacious ride to the fields to brush the cows and then to our picturesque spot for tea. The wagon is covered, and there's not much walking to be done, so rain is not an issue. We will do this when we are in Scotland again!

    Highland Coo's, a Must Visit.
    If you are anywhere near this part of Scotland you must make time to visit this wonderful place. Queenie and John are amazing people who not only own Cladich Fold,but they take a very hands on approach in showing you around their Highland cattle holding. These are very passionate and hard working people, backed by Stewart and his team. The tour takes you through from new Calves and mothers in the barns at this wet time of year,right to the top of their land to meet the herd close up. We were looked after very well and John even had towels to wipe the seats dry between our stops at various points as the rain kept coming. On the day we visited it was raining hard but that didn't stop us having a great time. This included an off road vehicle trip to see all aspects of the Coo's lives and welfare on top of the Mountain side, bringing local Jobs and famies back to the community and was rounded off with a hamper coffee and cakes to warm us back up again. Thank you very much guys, we will return on a dry day in the future i am sure to get a better view of the Lock below ! Clive and Helen.

    Way exceeded our expectations, even in the rain....
    I'm not sure I can add much to the amazing reviews already online, but just to say this trip was absolutely worth every penny, and every mile! Queenie was a very kind and hospitable host, and taught us everything we could want to know about highland cow farming. My daughter who is doing agricultural at university learnt quite a lot of interesting things too! After the tour, Queenie's lovely husband kindly came over for a little chat while we said goodbye to the coos. Highland cows are a very gentle breed, and everyone gets plenty of time to groom them, although of course if you have a nervous disposition you could just watch and admire, but they are completely safe and just stand there calmly and happily while they have their grooming therapy! For me the highlights were the sweet little calves, and the stunning views of the mountains all around, sometimes with beautiful Loch Awe in the background too. For us the views and variety of highland cows you get to experience (different colours, ages and genders) made it well worth us travelling the 3 hours to get there (and 3 hours back) with our guests (we did it in a day trip!) There is a gorgeous hotel you can combine it with, called Loch Awe hotel, about 15 minutes away, where you must find the stunning secluded side lounge which has huge picture windows overlooking the castle (not the same room the bar is in, but you can take your drinks there). I'm not sure they serve meals, so have your picnic at the castle or in the car if it's wet!

Queenie was amazing as a host and tour guide, she was incredibly knowledgeable and considerate, and you could see how much she loved the animals. The tour wasn’t too expensive considering it was a private tour.

This was hands down the best thing we did in Scotland! John was so warm and informative. He didn’t rush us at each part of the tour. We had tea in what I can only assume is a fairy glen, brushed the hairy coos, took many pictures, explored the beautiful landscape in a fun Polaris. 10/10! I would make a trip back to bring our adult children to this experience.

One of our best experiences in Scotland! Stuart (the farm manager and a Trustee of the Highland Cattle Society) gave a very personal and informative tour on a small all-terrain vehicle. We were able to see many cattle up close and without a fence in between, which is safe because they are very tame. We could even brush their coats. Stuart provided much information concerning this very special breed and how the farm operates. The farm itself is astonishingly beautiful.

Such an incredible experience to watch these beauties close up. Booked as a birthday gift for me and we couldn’t fault the entire tour. Stuart was very knowledgeable about the area and history, lots of photo opportunities and even a tea and cake pit stop with the coos.

You can tell the farm is run with such love and we cannot wait to be back! Thank you for a fabulous birthday 😁
