Lying adjacent to the farmhouse is a modern steel portal frame shed which currently is the home to the StrathBraan Brewery which is owned and run by the current owners.The land lying immediately to the south of the public road is all down to grass and made up of a number of fields, with a woodland strip towards the eastern boundary. The hill ground lies to the north of the house, with a woodland area on the eastern side and a telephone mast site at the top of the hill.This hill ground offers potential for woodland creation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The land rises from about 229m on the low ground to about 447m above sea level at its highest point. Deanshaugh Farm is available as a whole or in three lots as follows:LOT 1 – DEANSHAUGH FARMHOUSE AND GROUNDS EXTENDING TO ABOUT 8.95 HECTARES (16.60 ACRES)Deanshaugh Farmhouse was built in 2003 on the site of the former farmhouse.
