Galbraith is handling the sale of several good quality landholdings for those keen to expand their current land portfolio or who may be looking to purchase a productive farm along with farmhouse and outbuildings.
Duncan Barrie, partner and head of farm sales and valuations at Galbraith, said: “The more productive arable land and mixed farming units remain in high demand with a number of interested parties competing for each sale at closing date. Demand from land for afforestation and commercial tree planting and bare land for wider natural capital purposes has continued to underpin interest in the more marginal area of land, although buyers have begun to be more selective in last six months.
“The farms we currently have offered for sale represent a mix of geographical agricultural areas and includes two mixed farming units in Aberdeenshire, a compact former dairy unit in Ayrshire, and block of grassland and woodland within Dumfries and Galloway. As a firm we also have several other properties offering alternative development and amenity potential throughout Scotland and Northern England.”
