Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

What a hidden Gem just outside Stirling. We spent the weekend at Old Leckie and the place is amazing. The accommodation is spacious and well kept with three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with an large shower and bath) and a very spacious lounge with a woodburner. The kitchen has all the utensils you need and theres a nice big table for everyone to sit at. Its right on the farm and the owner showed us around all the animals - the kids loved it. There's plenty of walks around the area and you can even walk into the small village (about 20 minute walk) and get some food at the local pub. There's plenty of countryside to explore and great if you have a bike. The owners were great, very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. There's also a Safari Park (although this closes in winter). Stirling is about 10 minutes away and from here you can get to Glasgow or Edinburgh in about 45-50 minutes. The property is exceptionally clean and there is place to park cars in the courtyard. They have good wifi. This area is really historic and located next to an old 15th (?) century house and there is also a nearby Broch (some two thousand years old). I really recommend this place! Fantastic!!

We stayed in early November and had a really great time. The cottage was beautiful and Alison and Fergus couldn't have been more welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. They even organised a bonfire for us on bonfire night. We had young children with us and they loved the farm! The farm tour with Alison was the highlight for them (and us) during our stay. We had lovely walks around the farm and the nearby village during the days and cosied up in front of the fire in the cottage at night. We used their farm shop a lot. The produce tasted amazing so we ended up ordering lots of extra to take home . Would highly recommend old Leckie Farm.

I could not have been any happier to book at the Old Leckie Farmstay. The farm and lodging were both beautiful. Located in the center of Scotland makes it perfect for sightseeing. Alison and Fergus were extremely friendly and very helpful with traveling suggestions. Upon opening the house we were greeted with fresh food from the farm (homemade loaf of bread, butter, eggs, and wine) which provided the warmest welcome I have ever received. Scotland was amazing and we had a great time seeing the sights but we loved the farm so much we are planning a future trip just to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the farm.

Just back from a 5 day stay at the lovely Old Leckie Farm near Stirling. Our family had a wonderful stay made very special by the lovely welcome we got from the owners Alison and Fergus who gave us a tour of the farm. Pigs, piglets, sheep, cows and hens what more could the kids want. The girls even got to collect the eggs which was a great hit. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, well equipped and warm so we were delighted with everything. The location was brilliant, so central to everything we wanted to visit. I would highly recommend this stay to all.

This farm was such a great place to stay. Alison was an amazing host and we learned a lot about farming in Scotland. The farm house was very charming and well kept. My kids loved seeing all of the farm animals. It was also very convenient that we were close to Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh. I would definitely recommend staying here!

If youre from the country this place will feel like home.. if youre from the city this is as real as it gets! No gaudy pretense, real working family farm with lots of daily excitement, or hunker down in the brand new, but very old, barn/guest house conversion. Alison and Fergus welcomed us into some of their daily activities but the accomodation is also well set-up for privacy.

We had an amazing 3 nights here with my parents and our two kids (5 and two and a half). Alison could not have been more helpful and we had a lovely tour of the farm. The highlight for the kids was collecting eggs from the hens, which we did several times each day! Thanks for a great holiday. We are hopeful we will get to come back!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days here exploring the area. Loved the accommodation. Alison is an excellent host. Our grand children loved putting the hens to bed at night and seeing the pigs. I'm sure we will return one day perhaps with our French friends next time. Thanks Alison and Fergus
