Our Story


We changed our lives back in 2016, giving up on suburbia to move to the countryside. After a chance encounter with alpacas we welcomed our very own five and began this wonderful adventure.  


With a growing herd, we have a number of alpaca activities to offer something for everyone. From treks and strolls to visits, events and picnics. Today we have twenty five alpacas, a mix of male and female and breed our own cria (baby alpacas).

As the Beirhope family continues to grow, adventure awaits. Our off grid and eco friendly campsite, Beirhope Campacas, offers the opportunity to truly experience the magic of Beirhope in the rolling hills and countryside, under the most spectacular dark skies, of the Scottish Borders.

About Beirhope Farm

Beirhope Farm lies at the heart of the Cheviot Hills, in the beautiful Scottish Borders. Once a farm, it is now home to a growing herd of alpacas. As smallholders, we have many things farms have but on a much smaller scale.  Our hens provide us with the most delicious fresh eggs daily and our garden is now providing much of our fruit and vegetables. Our horses, Sol and Beano, and our pet sheep and goats are all close by and often stop by to say hello in the hope of an extra treat.
