Visitors to the farm will be able to walk around the drawing and are encouraged to book a free ticket and make a donation to the Foundation in return.

Speaking about his motivations for supporting My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, Crawford said: “Doddie Weir was a giant of a man, not only in height but also in character,

“I can’t think of a better way to show how huge an impact he has had, and his legacy continues to have on rugby, MND research and Scotland.
