A livestock and amenity with sporting and residential development potential.
Situated at the western end of the estate within the valley of the River North Esk, this is a particularly attractive lot which combines a traditional farmhouse with a redundant range of former farm buildings and about 441 acres of land including grass leys, permanent pasture, rough grazing and a significant extent of both commercial and amenity forestry. Access to the farmhouse is via a track leading north for about 300 metres from the minor public road. The house is a traditional harled, stone-built, two-storey farmhouse which includes three bedrooms. It also has a garden and adjoining outbuilding. There is a traditional farm steading just to the north of the house which has been redundant for agricultural purposes for a number of years and is in dilapidated condition. It has potential for a range of uses, subject to planning consent. With a southerly and westerly aspect draining into Glen Esk, the land varies between about 100 metres above sea level on the western boundary and about 265 metres at the summit of Manach Hill on the northern boundary. The land is classified grade 3(2) and 5(1) with soils comprising undifferentiated podzols, calcareous gleys and humus-iron podzols. Current and recent land use has included grazing of livestock, and both silage and cereal production. This lot includes a significant extent of forestry, some of which was planted as a commercial crop with other areas being for sporting and amenity purposes. There is vehicular access for Management and timber extraction purposes via a track leading from the minor public road. The extent of woodland and the topography within this lot provides for productive roe deer stalking and rough shooting for mixed game. This lot includes some of the existing pheasant drives on the estate with potential for further drives to be established.
