Make a four-legged friend this St Andrew's Day!

St Andrew's Day free activities at Redwings Mountains

Redwings Mountains will be celebrating all things great about ponies during a special weekend of fun, family activities in honour of the patron saint of Scotland.

Between Friday 1st December and Monday 4th December, our Angus visitor centre is offering a series of events showcasing everything we love about ponies! You’ll be able to meet our fluffy four-legged friends, including handsome cob Adoption Star Gibson. Members of the centre’s care team will also be on hand to show you how they look after our adorable mini residents with a series of fascinating guided tours and talks. There’s even a chance to have a go at pony grooming yourself!

After making some new pony friends, why not pull on your boots and explore the visitor centre further? You can meet some of our other four-legged residents, including super-friendly Adoption Star donkey Minnie and her son Mouse, as well as sheep Toffee and Treacle. There’s also 220 acres of paddocks and woodland to discover which are home to bountiful wildlife such as red squirrels and mountain birds.

Before you leave, why not warm up with a cuppa and slice of cake in our Nosebag Café? We also have a gift shop, which offers a wide variety of souvenirs with all proceeds going towards the hundreds of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in Redwings’ care nationwide.

Redwings Mountains, near Forfar, Angus, is open all-year round every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). Entry is free and dogs on leads are welcome!

We hope you can make it!
