This 329-acre farming enterprise is on the market - Includes two houses, cottage and farm shop

A 329-acre arable farming enterprise, with two farm houses, a farm cottage and farm shop, is for sale as a whole with offers over £3.75million sought.

This is one of the first commercially equipped farming enterprises to be launched in Scotland this year and is marketed by Savills.

Gilrivie, Tayock and Langley Park Farms in Angus lie adjacent to each other on the northern shore of the Montrose Basin, an area famed for its rich soil and agricultural heritage.

Chris Thomson, Savills, stated: “Collectively, these three units in Angus, a county famed for the quality of its land, are highly productive.

“With a good farmhouse, further residential properties which could generate additional income, as well as a substantial range of farm buildings, they are likely to attract strong interest, particularly given the limited amount of farmland currently available.

“Demand is likely to come from Scottish farmers, as well as those from Northern Ireland and south of the border, as farming families aspire to acquire high quality land to protect their businesses for the future,” he concluded.

Extending to circa 329 areas in total, the farming unit is centred around a practical farmhouse which is well suited to a working farming family.

The spacious farmhouse is set out over two floors and has an abundance of natural light throughout.

Of particular note is the sitting room with its central fireplace and French doors which open to the outside.

The fitted kitchen comes with integral appliances and provides ample space for a breakfast table.

On a practical front there is a welcoming porch, farm office and store room.

The farms are well equipped with an extensive range of farm buildings, with storage for grain and 4,000 tonnes of potatoes.

In addition there are machinery stores and a range of traditional outbuildings at both Gilrivie and Tayock.

The land extends to 329 acres, made up of 302 arable acres, six acres of pasture and 20.68 acres of tracks, steadings and other.

The current rotation is based around spring barley and salad potatoes.

In the past, a wider range of arable crops have been grown including winter wheat and oil seed rape.

There is a successful self service farm shop which sells home grown produce, as well as produce from other local suppliers.
