The property comprises a productive area of east facing hill and pasture ground and a telecoms mast currently leased to EE until January 2036, generating an annual income. Harry Graham of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
The hill ground is currently leased for grazing on a seasonal basis but would be well suited for a new commercial forestry enterprise, subject to obtaining the necessary planting approval. We anticipate that the land will appeal to forestry and local farming interests but also other amenity type purchasers who are keen to enter the market for larger areas of grazing and hill ground.
The land sits in an accessible location near Auchterarder, with excellent links to the A9 which is some seven miles to the north west providing swift access to Stirling, Glasgow and Perth, and the M90 being ten miles to the east providing access to Edinburgh and the north of Scotland. Gleneagles mainline railway station is about seven miles to the north west.
The lowest point of the holding is 210m above sea level, rising to 270m above sea level at its highest point, offering stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The Ochil Hills are popular with hill walkers and cyclists. The land is principally east facing and has been classified by The James Hutton Institute as a mixture of Grade 5.2 and 5.3. The property is accessed via a number of field gates located to the south of the holding, which lead off from a private road which connects with the A823.
