Mr Leckie said "traditional family values" were needed at Christmas
Computer games are to be banned by one of Scotland's oldest hotels this Christmas in an attempt to "restore traditional family values".
The Crieff Hydro hotel in Perthshire will ask visiting families to leave games consoles at home and instead spend "quality time" with each other.
Founded in 1868, the hotel is said to be Scotland's oldest family-run hotel.
Managing director Stephen Leckie, said children should not be "glued" to game consoles during the festive season.
He added: "As a father-of-four, I'm well aware of the role that computer games play in youngsters' lives and they undoubtedly have a place," he said.
"However with Christmas holidays being the ideal opportunity to spend quality time with our families, we're asking our younger guests to set their consoles and games aside for just a few days of the year and, instead, sample some new activities which they may never have tried before."
