Pygmy goats and pilates is a most unusual combination - but they came together for a unique event held in Fife recently. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) brought them together as part of a programme to mark its 40th anniversary.

Pilates fans attended a class with difference at Bellcraig Farm, near Glenrothes, where they were joined by the pygmy goats - named Maggie, Mabel, Hazel, Fergus and Angus - while taking part in a whisky tasting event to mark an important milestone. They enjoyed three drams with a summer theme.

The event was hosted by Jo Munro of the Pilates Attic in Edinburgh - the only one in Scotland which offers the goat-pilates combination which has become a big hit with enthusiasts in the USA.

Creating unique settings is such an exciting way to host sensory experiences - it’s fascinating to see how these events affect the appreciation of whisky.”She added: “The trend for goat pilates has swept the nation and it felt like the perfect, adventurous idea for a whisky tasting.
