Heralding the start of the new year, Arran's first lambs have arrived with the birth of twin blue faced Leicester lambs who were born just two days after Christmas. Rather new to the world herself, four month old Sophie joined her parents Genevieve and Niall McMaster in welcoming the newborns to Springfield Farm, West Bennan where the arrival of the lambs is almost a month ahead of the usual lambing season which starts during February.
