Unhindered by the impending Scottish referendum CKD Galbraith has brought several new farms to the market in recent weeks. Furthermore, the firm expects high levels of interest for two outstanding farms in particular, both offering potential buyers the flexibility to purchase as a whole or as separate lots.
Ingleston Farm is an attractive amenity and livestock farm on the Solway Coast at the mouth of the River Nith. The principal lot extends to about 247 acres in total and includes a traditional four bedroom farmhouse benefiting from fine views over the surrounding countryside and east towards the sea.
The range of modern farm buildings includes; a modern general purpose shed, a Dutch barn, several cattle courts, cubicle houses, a feed store and stabling for up to four horses. The land is mainly Class 3(2) and is ideally suited to support a dairy, beef or sheep enterprise. Of the 247 acres there are roughly 190 acres of silage ground, 22 acres of permanent pasture and 24 acres of woodland.

Duncan Barrie, handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: "Both units present a range of opportunities to nearby farmers and individuals from further afield, we are therefore anticipating a good repose for each of the farms and their respective lots of sale.
"Both farms are located within desirable locations, with local services, amenities, and transportation links close by. Edinburgh and Glasgow are within commuting distance from Clydeside Farm and Ingleston Farm is only nine miles from the town of Dumfries and has a fantastic range of outdoor activities available on its door step, thus the farm is likely to appeal to the wider amenity purchaser in addition to existing farming business."
