Productive Arable Land, By Linlithgow, On The Market With Galbraith

Land At Myrehead, By Linlithgow consists of 99.28 acres (40.18 hectares) of productive arable land, within an accessible location in West Lothian. 

The land is just one mile from junction four of the M9 and three miles from the desirable town of Linlithgow.

The land at Myrehead is classified as being principally Grade 3.1 by the James Hutton Institute and is currently divided into three good sized enclosed fields, currently used for cereal and fodder production with an area of approximately 4.37 acres (1.77 hectares) down to amenity woodland. There is a lease agreement currently in place with a local farmer, with the contract running until March 2019. 

Duncan Barrie, handling the sale of the land for Galbraith, said:

Myrehead is a particularly accessible location within easy reach of Linlithgow and the M9 which will be very convenient for various different types of purchaser. This is good quality arable land, which is likely to appeal to both existing farming businesses looking to benefit from economies of scale, and investors or other non-farming interests who may wish to continue with the existing lease arrangement currently in place or farm under a contract farming arrangement.  

In addition, there may be scope to utilise the land, subject to the necessary planning consents, for alternative uses, given the good road access and the proximity of the M9, the village of Whitecross and Linlithgow.

The nearby village of Whitecross benefits from regeneration development plans for the growing settlement. It is intended that the Myrehead road from the A803 to Whitecross will also be upgraded as a planning condition of the Whitecross expansion. 

The land at Myrehead is available in two lots or as a whole, as follows: 

Lot 1:  offers over £420,000; 

Lot 2:  offers over £210,000; 

As a whole: offers over £630,000.
