Welcome to Knockbain Farm

Knockbain Farm sits above the market town of Dingwall in the Highlands of Scotland and is run by two generations of the Lockett family. David and Denise bought the farm in 1971 and have lived here since then. Richard grew up on the farm and moved back to Knockbain with his wife Susie in 2014.

Knockbain produces high quality food with a commitment to a healthy, diverse, attractive environment. With a network of paths and tracks, we welcome visitors from near and far. Knockbain is a great place to stay and we offer a range of accommodation options including luxury bed and breakfast and a chance to stay in a unique Shepherd's Hut.

Our work is making the farm increasingly attractive to wildlife. We have restored a 10 hectare wetland habitat and lapwing have recently returned to breed. Red kite are a regular sight and now also breed on the farm. We run an environmental consultancy service with the aim of sharing expertise in farm conservation.
