Old Leckie Farm is run by Alison and Fergus with the help of their three young children, Fergus’ mother and their good friend Al. It is home to 300 Texel/ Llyen sheep, a herd of Limousin X cattle and a fair few tractors. Our location offers exceptional access to some of Central Scotland’s most commanding scenery – all in easy reach by walking, bike, or car.
