John and Keith Morrison farm at Fairburn just outside Macduff, Aberdeenshire, in the northeast of Scotland. In 2013, the farm needed to increase its winter accommodation capacity. After some deliberation, the decision was made to go for a roundhouse.

The key factor that influenced the decision was the fact that it provided both housing and handling all in one bespoke system. In the centre of the Roundhouse is the handling unit. This means that there is immediate access from any pen of animals to the crush and headgate.
