Unfortunately, due to the availability of our volunteers, we are now only able to offer informal tours to the general public at weekends.
Not all of our animals can have treats, due to some being a tad large (our vet tells us off frequently ). Visitors are welcome to bring porridge oats, sweetcorn and blueberries for the ducks and geese, and an assortment of greens (kale, spring greens, spinach, broccoli) for the small flurries. Many thanks.
Bookings for formal Group visits, to include a tour and handling session, may be requested by organisations such as Schools and Nurseries. Please note that these are only available by booking in advance and can only be facilitated by us if we are provided with at least 48 hours notice. This is necessary to allow us to check the cover availability of our volunteers. A minimum charge applies for this service (£10 for up to 10 adults and children) and thereafter the cost is dependent on Group size.
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 and through 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.
