She told STV News: “We were literally due to open the week of the first lockdown – we were meant to have a grand opening but that wasn’t to be.

“Now it’s so lovely to have everyone back and hear and see how happy children and adults are to be here.

“If I could bottle the sounds of their laughter, I would.”

Monty’s Farm has a host of Easter activities on offer, with everything from Easter chicks, to tractor rides, but their star attraction is the ‘Baaternity’ where visitors can feed and cuddle newborn lambs.

Sarah’s husband, Gerry, said: “It’s a special time of year and to see the looks on little boys and girls faces when they get close to lambs.

“It’s literally like Christmas has come round again.”

Across the country, from Arnprior Farm near Stirling to Briarlands next to Blair Drummond Safari Park; there are plenty of lambing experiences and Easter egg hunts for everyone to get eggcited about.
