Description

Block of livestock grazing land divided into 8 main parcels with additional areas of woodland and forestry. The land, which has been run alongside the arable land to the north is in exceptional heart throughout and has been re-seeded as required. A huge investment has been made with a number of new fences being present while the majority of the hill land is surrounded by electric fencing. The fields are well drained and large enough to run high numbers of livestock comfortably on a rotational basis.

Altitude
The land sits at a height of approximately 140-277 metres above average
sea level.

Soils
The land is predominantly Class 3:2, with the top of the hill being Classes 4 & 5 as per the James Hutton Institute Land Capability for Agriculture Land Classification and is generally capable of producing high yields of grass with occasional forage crops.

Irrigation
No irrigation is possible.

NVZ
The land lies within the Strathmore & Fife Nitrate Vulnerable Zone.

Sporting
The sporting rights are in hand but other than vermin control, no shooting currently takes place on the farm. There is however, huge potential to
establish an in-hand shoot by utilising the varied topography and range of mixed woodlands on the property particularly if purchased as a whole.

Minerals
Insofar as they are owned these are included in the sale.

Access
Access to the land is taken via a shared access track through Johnston Mains Farm. A central hill track allows access to all fields. It should be noted that the Vodafone & EE masts are not owned by the seller and a right of access over the land has been granted in respect thereof.

General
All of the land is registered under the IACS registration system for Basic Payment purposes.
Basic Payment. The Basic Payment Scheme entitlements are included in the sale.

Growing Crops
It is the seller’s intention to have all growing crops removed before the entry
date.
