The New Keig and Kinstair Farms comprise five named agricultural units, which are farmed as a single extensive arable enterprise alongside a custom-built grain processing and storage facility, currently handling circa 4,000 tonnes of seed per annum.
Formerly known as Caledonian Seeds, Prospect Buildings forms an integral part of the current farming business, utilising staffing resource from autumn through to early spring specialising in the processing, treatment and bagging of high quality grain seed for regional and national agricultural merchants.
The area under crop extends to just over 1,000 acres of Class 3 land with a south and west facing aspect.
The land is in good heart, consistently producing high quality crops including oil seed rape, winter wheat, winter barley and spring barley for malting.
Cairncosh Farmhouse (currently undergoing a full renovation which will be completed prior to a sale) provides a spacious single storey home, including four bedrooms enjoying fine views across open countryside and located adjacent to the site of a former steading, now demolished and with planning permission for three new dwelling houses.
There are a number of traditional steadings and sites across the property, offering the opportunity for creating new steading complexes, or potential for development to alternative uses, subject to planning.
Evelyn Channing, Savills, commented: “This is an important launch for the 2022 farmland market in Scotland.
“Prospect Buildings is a large scale modern grain facility with an established client base serving a significant area of Scotland.
“With an experienced workforce adding value to both home produced and imported seed, the outcome is a meaningful additional diversified income which will be attractive to many.
“As a result, we anticipate interest from all corners of the UK.
“The farms are being offered for sale in lots and therefore are also likely to appeal to those looking to expand locally as well as those seeking to relocate from further afield.”
