Auchgoyle Farm is situated in a peaceful and private area of Argyll & Bute approximately three miles to the south west of the village of Tighnabruaich and overlooking the small village of Millhouse. The agricultural land at Auchgoyle extends to 188.52 ha (465.83 acres) in total and the sale comprises a traditional five-bedroom farmhouse and separate two-bedroom stone cottage.
Historically, Auchgoyle was run as a dairy farm, equipped with an extensive range of modern and traditional buildings which are now utilised for the running of a successful sheep operation with a current flock size of 150 -200 sheep, as well as housing an established beef herd of 50 suckler cows plus followers.
The farmland is split into several enclosures with the majority of the in-bye pasture located to the south of the farm steading and principally used for fodder production. The remainder of the farm provides an excellent balance of low ground in-bye pasture and hill grazing which have been used for more extensive grazing by livestock. A number of amenity woodland areas also exist, providing shelter and may present the opportunity to expand the sporting dimension on the holding.
Auchgoyle Farm is one of a number of farms and parcels of land currently being brought to the open market through Galbraith with a total acreage of 2,222.3 and combined value of over 7.5 million. Duncan Barrie, handling the sale for Galbraith, said:
Auchgoyle Farm is a productive livestock farm offering the perfect rural location ideal for family living. The large traditional farm house presents generous living space and the separate farm cottage provides accommodation for visiting guests or farm employees. There is also the potential to develop on some of the land adjacent to the farm as well as a ruined cottage offering a development opportunity either as additional accommodation or establishing a holiday-let cottage.
The Scottish farm market is extremely healthy right now with many buyers keen to make their next move, be it a large scale operation or purchasing an additional parcel of land. Auchgoyle Farm represents a fantastic opportunity given its current operation and the development potential and is sure to attract a lot of interest.
