A farming family on Loch Lomondside has been chosen for a project which aims to drive forward the Scotland's vibrant agritourism sector.

The Lennox family have run a bed and breakfast and self-catering business at Shantron Farm for the past 30 years.

Now, thanks to their extensive experience, they have been selected along with another farming family on the east coast to jointly lead Scotland’s latest Agritourism monitor farm project.

Working with other farms, estates and crofts, the two new agri-tourism monitor farms located in East Lothian and Dunbartonshire will help to improve their profitability, productivity and sustainability through practical demonstrations and sharing of best practice.

Three generations of the Lennox family farm at Shantron, near Luss, where they can trace their history back to 1750.

Bobby Lennox, 64, is the ninth generation at Shantron where he has lived all his life.

He farms sheep and beef in partnership with his wife Anne, 66.

Their daughter Kay, 34, works full-time across a number of business ventures.

Kay and husband Dougie, 38, who have two children, are developing a glamping and farm experience business together.

Dougie will use his boat building skills to build the glamping pods himself.

Bobby said: "We wish to be the agritourism monitor farmers so we can work with others to learn how to make money from selling the farm experience, in a way that is a unique day out for the tourist and is financially lucrative for ourselves.

"We have three generations living from the farm and we wish to all earn a decent return for what we do and ensure the farm is viable for future generations.

"We have been in both farming and tourism for a long time but we feel that by combining the two much more smartly, we can develop a distinctive and innovative agritourism product in the Scottish tourism market.

"As monitor farmers we hope that other farmers can also learn alongside us how to tell and sell their farming story much more effectively.”

Anne and Bobby became well-known faces to TV audiences as one of the farming couples to star in the first series of the BBC’s award-winning ‘This Farming Life’ programme.

The family are also stalwarts of the Loch Lomondside community where they play an active role.

The Scottish Government’s agri tourism monitor farm programme is being delivered by Scottish Enterprise and Highlands & Islands Enterprise.
