What you'll do
Arrive on the farm and park beneath Old Leckie Tower House built in 1530. Alison, your host will welcome you and, if needed, will kit you out in footwear to suit the mud conditions! We will then set out on foot to meet some of our cows, sheep, pigs and hens and explore the historic landscape of Old Leckie Farm. Try your hands at feeding some of our animals, collecting and packing eggs and if the weather conditions allow we can include a quad bike tour around the fields. Ask as many questions as you like about farming in Scotland and what's involved with actually being a farmer. If you're catering for yourself during the trip take the chance to buy some of our farm produce: free range eggs, tasty organic salad, mouth watering beef, pork and lamb. Hear about the links between Old Leckie and Mary Queen of Scots, and why a soldier was shot when Bonnie Prince Charlie came to dinner here, then walk part of the old Military road down to ruined mills and pretty 17C bridges. Toilet and handwashing facilities available.
We have plenty of welly boots to suit all ages and sizes
My family has been farming at Old Leckie for over 100 years and we have been guiding people around our working farm and historic landscape for the last 5 years. Passionate about high quality local food production, high welfare and free range ethos, I am an ideal person to introduce you to the real life experience of farming in Scotland!
