The land at Alton of Bandeath is located in the County of Stirling on the southern banks of the River Forth. The farm is situated in the fertile area of the Carse of Stirling lying between the Ochil Hills and the Kilsyth Hills and is well known for its productive farmland while also remaining easily accessible.
Alton of Bandeath is located close to the village of
Fallin, and is conveniently placed for the M9 motorway, with the city centres of Stirling (3.5 miles), Glasgow (29 miles) and Edinburgh (35 miles) all within easy reach. The farm sits amidst open and attractive countryside close to the River Forth and is accessed via the A905 public road which passes through Fallin to Stirling.
The area is well served by agricultural suppliers,
established agricultural contractors and livestock
markets, including Millhall Auction Mart (2 miles) and Stirling Agricultural Centre (6.5 miles).
The Land at Alton of Bandeath forms an area of
productive farmland which is situated in a single block extending to about 89.18 Ha (220.36 Acres) in total. The farmland is currently all down to pasture and used for livestock grazing. The land has benefited from variations of arable forage and high clover mix for over a decade, and as result the land is in good heart and would be well suited to the introduction of potatoes and other winter harvested vegetables as part of an arable rotation.
The individual fields are all of a good size with stock
proof fencing and benefit from excellent access onto
a private track, which leads on to the public road. The majority of the enclosures have access to a natural source water supply.
The land benefits from a separate access via a field
gate which leads onto the minor public road. The
majority of the land has been classified by the James Hutton Institute as Grade 3.1 with a small area to the south being Grade 3.2.
