Balcaskie has a number of refurbished traditional farm steadings, no longer suitable for machinery or animal welfare standards on a modern farm. With the intention of reproviding workshop and studio space lost over the years from nearby villages, we have a long-term programme of reinvestment into our traditional steadings.
