The farm is equipped with an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings including parlour and cubicle housing for just over 100 cows, with a number of straw bed courts for young stock. There are also several sheds and stores, a machinery shed, pole barn, slurry store, silage pit, feed bin and garage.
Duncan Barrie, a partner with Galbraith, said:
Gowmacmorran Farm offers a great opportunity to acquire an accessible farm in central Scotland either as whole or in a number of smaller lots. This holding is well-situated, in a private but accessible location, with good transport links via the A71 and M8 and easy access to livestock marts in Lanark and Stirling.
The farmhouse requires complete modernisation throughout, but there is huge potential for the purchaser to renovate and extend the existing accommodation via the adjacent outbuildings, subject to obtaining planning permission. This offers significant flexibility to create a larger home with modern standards of comfort and design, in an attractive and private rural area.
The farmland extends to about 271.22 acres (109.76 Ha) in total, separated into three principal blocks with access provided to the majority of the fields either directly from the adjoining minor public roads or via a network of farm tracks. The farmland is all down to pasture and used for grazing and fodder production. There is also an area of amenity woodland.
Agriculturally the surrounding area of South Lanarkshire provides an attractive location with a combination of productive pasture and arable ground with rolling hills in the distance. The farm lies within 10 miles of Lanark Mart and 35 miles from the two Livestock Marts in Stirling providing an excellent choice of outlets for finished livestock produced on the holding. The village of Forth is only two miles away and provides a number of day to day local amenities, with nearby Lanark and Livingston providing much larger array of services and facilities.
Mr Barrie continued:
The sellers will consider offers for Gowmacmorran Farm as a whole, or in seven lots, and as result we expect the holding to appeal to local farming operations keen to expand but also amenity and forestry interests given the potential development options and the level of grants available at present for woodland creation.
