ANIMAL lovers are being invited to join in a trek on an Ayrshire estate - with the estate's own flock of pygmy goats for company.

Six dates have been unveiled this month for the guided walks at the Kelburn Country Centre, on the Kelburn Estate near Largs.

Experts will be talking all those taking part through safe handling procedures before starting the trek, to keep both you and the goats safe.

Ayr Advertiser:

The whole experience will be up to an hour long including safety talk, the trek and a chance to feed the goats at the end.

Children of all ages are welcome but the walk is brisk and uphill. All under-16s must be accompanied by a supervising adult, and all those taking part are asked to wear stout footwear.

Dates available for the treks are August 3, 10, 12, 13, 17, and 20.
