‘Annie the Alpaca’ travelled to Edinburgh to spend the day at luxury Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel

Annie the Alpaca traveled from Stirling, where she lives at the Alpaca Trekking Center, in Edinburgh in October for the shoot at the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel.

The alpaca happily posed for photos and was photographed sending Christmas cards, posing in party favors and even paying the bill for her drinks at the hotel bar!

The hotel rolled out the red carpet for Annie to help promote their PAWfect Stay Package, which provides guests’ pets with everything they need, including a comfy bed, treats, and a bowl for eating or drinking. .

The experience of the comforts of home at the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel did not come as a huge shock to Annie, as she was raised differently from the 74 other alpacas who live off the farm at the Trekking Center.

After Annie was rejected by her mother just 10 minutes away, her owner, Dannie Burns, took her to his house and raised her by hand.

Dannie would wake up every two hours to bottle-feed her – “like a baby,” he said.

When he took his dogs to the bathroom, Annie would come too, cementing his status as a pet. Hanging out with her owners’ puppies clearly affected Annie, as Dannie put it: “She doesn’t think she’s an alpaca – she has nothing to do with the rest of the herd. She just thinks she’s a dog.

Indeed, like a dog, Annie slept next to Dannie’s bed – although she is now over a year old, she is too big for the bedroom and sleeps on the porch.

Even now Annie lives outside half the time, she is still just as loving according to Dannie, and still runs to meet him as he drives down the car ride each day.

Some might think that an alpaca wouldn’t like to be the center of attention, however, Dannie thinks Annie’s opposite. He said, “She’s a little bit crazy, she loves attention.”

Visiting a hotel hasn’t been a feat for the attention-loving alpaca, who Dannie says “gets along with everyone.” She is regularly taken to weddings, birthdays and nursing homes for visitation.

Annie posed in reindeer ears in one of the hotel’s luxurious rooms.

It’s not just alpacas that can visit the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel. The hotel welcomes all pets, whether they are furry, feathered or scaled. They said, “As long as they can fit in the elevator, they’re welcome!” “.

Kieran Quinn, General Manager of the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel, said: “As we all know a dog, cat, parrot or even an alpaca is for life and not just for Christmas which is why we are so thrilled. to donate £ 5 from each PAWfect stay package to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home throughout the month of December This is a wonderful local charity and is just a small way to say thank you for everything what they did for the amazing cats and dogs of Edinburgh “.
