It’s been a busy holiday and today was no exception. Gorgie Farm is one of those places you pass all the time and always say about going but never get around to it.
Well, today was different, our Edinburgh Under Fives book gave it a good write up, especially for younger children, so off we set – well actually it’s only about a ten minute drive away. The farm, being in the city centre, was more comprehensive than I had expected. The array of animals included hens, goats, sheep, a snake, ponies, pigs, birds, guinea pigs and rabbits. There was also a small play park with picnic area and a farm shop.
There was plenty to see and do, and on a warmer day we could have easily spent a couple of hours. Today was a little chilly so we introduced Erin to the animals and their respective noises, she really enjoyed it and started trying to make the noises herself, we left after about 45 minutes knowing we would definitely be back! Did I mention that admission was free (there is a donation box)!
