    We are establishing a new garden in the Perthshire countryside and we farm cattle, sheep and bees.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very happy living in such a beautiful area so we want to share it with others.
    This area of Perthshire has tremendous remote areas with interesting wildlife, birds, mushrooms and plants. We have mountains, forests and rivers for walks, rafting/canoeing sailing and canoes.

    We are in a great place to see birds and wildlife, happy to make progress slowly and enjoy the quiet countryside at a walking pace.
