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.
The farm has been run by the family for over 100 years and we raise Limousin beef cattle and Llyen/Texel sheep. During lambing there are often new mothers and their offspring housed in other parts of the Steading so visitors at this time of year could be right in the thick of it. The Steading sits adjacent to the working yards of the farm so visitors can expect to see plenty of activity, sheep being moved by the resident sheepdogs, hay being carted up to the shed, and of course, lots of chickens running about.
The farm is a fascinating place for old and young alike we are happy to arrange a tour depending on your interests.
The accommodation is well appointed and is a little piece of luxury in the heart of a working farm. It's furnished to a high standard so that you can have a relaxing, comfortable holiday. Enjoy the morning sun as you breakfast round the farmhouse table, take advantage of the picnic blankets to enjoy some al fresco dining, unwind in front of the log burning stove, or in the roll top bath. Sleep well in our wonderful Egyptian cotton bed linen and duck down bedding. The apartment is heated by our renewable BioMass Boiler keeping you warm and toasty whilst environmentally happy.
There is lots to do in the local area – so rain or shine there’s plenty to keep you amused. The popular villages of Gargunnock and Kippen are within easy walking distance. The City of Stirling is only a 10 minute drive to the East, and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park within a 20 minute drive to the North and West.
Old Leckie Farm itself provides a beautiful backdrop to your holiday – combining the bustle of a family farm hosting cows, sheep, chickens and small children with century old trees , hidden bridges and waterfalls.
