The land rises from approximately 3m to 37m above sea level at its highest point and is all bound by a combination of post & wire and post & rylock fencing as well as dry stone dykes. Situated in an area with an extended growing period, the land lies to the east of the A716, following the shoreline along the coast. Access to the fields is taken direct from the A716, from the track leading to Balgowan Farmhouse, or from field to field access.
