Always knew he was a star

Star Quality

Anyone who has visited us will undoubtedly have met and enjoyed spending time with our Cyril, the pygmy goat. Cyril came to us in 2019 and touched many hearts with his mischievous ways. Sadly we lost him to old age last Christmas, but Cyril's memory lives on in the release of a fabulous new film shot in and around Wigtown. If you had the pleasure of meeting Cyril and would like to see his film debut, "Stella" can be found on STV Player and is magnificent (especially the parts with Cyril!).
