October brings autumn colour, blustery walks and leaves falling as the evenings grow steadily darker. The farm is now back to its winter sheep stocking numbers that are easily sustained alongside our rich flora and fauna in the hills. There is a brief respite on the farm before tupping time.
What's on around Edinburgh in October?
Make the most of Edinburgh's delicious restaurant, gin & cocktail festivals for nights out in the capital this month. For a scary (but mainly fun) night out take advantage of the dark evenings for a Halloween-worthy ghost tour by vintage bus!
