James Butler, Associate Partner in Strutt & Parker’s Edinburgh office, said: “This is a good upland stock farm with a well-balanced mixture of pasture, rough grazings and woods. It benefits from an extremely accessible location with proximity to Edinburgh City Centre, Edinburgh Airport, the city bypass and routes north and south.”

Particular features include superb views, the Lyne Water (a tributary of the River Tweed) running through the farm and the rugged glacial valley known as Windy Gowl.

In recent years, a driven pheasant shoot has been run at the farm and it has the potential to be developed further. The land also hosts a population of roe deer and there is excellent rough shooting for woodcock, snipe and geese.
