They let you watch the sheep dogs at work herding the sheep on the mountains. Afterwards, you get to watch a sheep sheared. It was more fun than I thought. Be sure to visit the gift shop for neat gifts and soaps.

Awesome! Beautiful location. It was so much fun watching the Border Collie work. Be prepared for changing weather. We had hail and sunshine. Great experience, don't miss it. Seven euros very reasonable. It is short but very fun.
