The farm is run entirely by volunteers and is open 7 days a week (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day & 2nd January). Although we try to be consistent with our opening hours, from time to time these need to change due to our volunteers availability. Our current opening hours can be found on our “About Us” page here.
Please drop in and see our lovely animals! The Farm is based at Barrhill Road, Erskine, PA8 6EZ (please use PA8 6BU in your Satnav). If you need to contact the farm directly during opening hours our landline is (0141) 812 5335. As we are a charity we do not charge entry into the Farm. However we recommend a donation of £5/ family of four. All donations, no matter how small, are always most gratefully received.
We encourage groups to visit the farm. However, in order to maximise your visit we do request you book a time and date with us at least 3 to 4 weeks before your planned arrival. Booking in advance allows us to ensure that a Volunteer will be available for you. All fees go towards the welfare of our animals.
Current charges (@ 5/2/20) for organised group visits (schools, nursery’s etc) are £3.00 per child for groups of over 5 children. If you want a full one hour guided tour and information on the animals, including animal handling, then there is an additional charge of £2.00 per adult.
Travel by foot
Erskine is the ideal town for travel by foot. Approaching from Bridgewater, take the footpath past Park Mains football pitches up to Barrhill Road. We are in such a prime location why not incorporate Lamont Farm into your weekly stroll!
From further afield, you can approach Lamont Farm either from Junction 29 near Glasgow Airport, or else take the A726 at the Erskine Bridge. The farm lies at the southern end of Barrhill Road, and you will need to approach from Old Greenock Road to avoid a pedestrian section. Enter ‘PA8 6BU’ in your SatNav; the farm is sign-posted once you get close. In respect for our neighbours, we would kindly ask that you park after the farm gate or use our car park (just past the first field, opposite the fork in the road before the bollards andthrough the break in the wall on the right hand side). Thank you.
McGills Buses operate frequent services from Glasgow, Paisley and Clydebank. The bus stops on Rashielee Road and Barrhill Road are less than 5 minutes walk from the farm. Use the Traveline Scotland site to plan your journey.
