Bamflatt Farm is an attractive compact holding situated to the south of the popular town of Biggar, in a private and scenic position on the border between South Lanarkshire and the Scottish Borders. The farm sits in an accessible rural location about 3.5 miles from Biggar with good links via the A702 to Edinburgh and via the M74 to Glasgow and the south.
There is an excellent range of independent shops, and primary and secondary schooling is provided in nearby Biggar. The market town of Lanark is some 9.5 miles to the north of the farm, offering a wider range of services including shopping, leisure and business facilities.
Edinburgh and Glasgow are within commuting distance and easily accessible by road from the A702 and M74 respectively, with rail services to Glasgow from Lanark and to Edinburgh from Carstairs. Both City Centres, with their exceptional range of shops, business, cultural and leisure amenities, can be reached in about an hour. Glasgow and Edinburgh International Airports are only about 35 and 50 miles distant respectively and offer regular domestic and international flights.
The area has a wealth of year round sporting and recreational amenities. These include walking in the nearby hills, trout fishing on the Clyde and a leisure pool at Lanark. There are excellent golf courses at Biggar, Carnwath and Lanark.
The farm is situated in a particularly scenic part of the country with a combination of productive farmland and rolling hills beyond. There is an excellent agricultural infrastructure serving both the arable and livestock sectors. Lanark and Stirling Markets provide excellent outlets for sheep and cattle bred on the farm.
Bamflatt Farm was historically run as a dairy farm until the 1980s, before the present owners converted it to use as a stock farm. The holding is centred on a traditional farmhouse which is in need of modernisation with a traditional Bothy and L-shaped steading which present longer term development potential, subject to the necessary consents. The farm is equipped with a group of modern farm buildings and a former ‘lade’ runs through the property which historically formed part of a working mill.
The holding is accompanied by a productive block of arable and pasture ground, suitable for grazing and forage production with the majority of the fields having been ploughed and re-seeded to maintain and improve the quality of the grass swards. The farmland in total extends to 43.43 Ha (107.32 Acres) including roads, yards and buildings and is split into two ring fenced enclosures by the public road
