Scalpsie Farm is located on the west coast of Scotland, about an hour from Glasgow, on the Isle of Bute.
Our farm carries a herd of about 170 suckler cows, mainly “Saler cross” cows with Charolais calves at foot, and about 1,000 breeding ewes consisting of 150 Herdwicks and 850 Highlander and Aberfield Ewes.
Farmed by Ian and John Dickson, the farm is producing “lamb and beef” which is sold mainly through Scotbeef to supply Marks & Spencers aswell as our local butcher R. H. McIntyre, Rothesay and Bute Kitchen.
Secluded Scalpsie Bay is a great place to relax and enjoy with stunning scenery at our doorstep. The wildlife includes the seal colony, porpoises, otters and basking sharks can be seen – as well as the best scenery of Arran and the Holy Isle.
There are plenty of beautiful walks to be explored, as well as interesting history and geology of the bay.
