We were blessed to be able to watch Neil Ross command his wonderful dogs round up and herd the sheep by whistles and commands. It truly was one of my husband’s and my highlights visiting Scotland! He asked if anyone would like to see what...More

We visited the farm and immediately saw it is a working farm. There were several collies in the yard. All of them were very well behaved. As the demonstration started, I can't call it a show because this is what he does. He demonstrated the...More

We sat on the Scottish hillside and watch the once Scottish Brace Champion whistle up his sheepdogs sounding up the sheep and it was a truly awesome experience! Amazing! How they respond/obey his whistles, verbal and non-verbal commands is outstanding. We were all mesmerized! It...More

We enjoyed the whole show. How they work the dogs to bring the sheep in or separate the herd was amazing. Learned a lot too. How the sheep aren’t scared of the dogs and how the dogs love what they are doing. The dogs are...More

The dogs are so nice and well behaving. I was amazed how smart they are. Each dog has its own set of commands and acts on them accordingly. Very nice to see how dogs listen to commands and do exactly what the shepherd wants.

Optional experience with Trafalgar Tour. Highly recommend if you have never seen how the border collies dogs control the herds! Neil provided excellent info on farm life. Such cute puppies too! Able to try our hand at shearing and how much skill is involved!

Unique experience. Neil Ross does an excellent presentation of traditional shepherding skills with border collies. He demonstrates, answers questions, encourages participation in sheep shearing, then brings out the orphaned lambs and border collie puppies for fun interaction. Not to be missed if you're in that...More

What a lovely group of working dogs under the direction of their owner, Neil. It was such a delight to watch the talents of Neil and his working sheepdogs as they moved the flock from the outer field up front to where Neil was waiting....More

The day we were there it was raining and we were there about an hour. If the weather had been nicer would the 'show' have been longer? Not sure. Sorry don't know what to tell you about the time.
