Airyolland Farm is situated in a stunning coastal location in the Machars area of Dumfries & Galloway. The property lies some 4 miles north west of Port William and about 9 miles south east of Glenluce and the A75 trunk road. This area
lies within the climatically favoured south west corner of Scotland with the farm directly benefitting from the Gulf Stream, which makes for a mild climate and a long growing season. This has contributed to the area being one of the most
productive grass growing regions within the United Kingdom.
The well-known fishing village and tourist destination of Port William has local services including a primary school, hotel, restaurant, post office, hardware store and petrol station. The nearby town of Newton Stewart, 20 miles, provides a more extensive range of services including secondary schooling, leisure and sporting facilities, banks, supermarkets, a variety of shops and professional services you would expect to find in a major market town. Wigtown, with its renowned annual book festival is about 12 miles north east of Airyolland and Whithorn is around 10 miles to the south east and both offer a range of local services.
Communications to the area are much improved with the A75 trunk road providing quick access from the south via the M6, A74 and M74. The ferry links to Northern Ireland run from Cairnryan, which is approximately a 30 minute drive from the farm.
The international airports of Prestwick and Glasgow are about an hour and an hour and a halfs drive from the property respectively.
This area of south west Scotland is one of the most varied and picturesque parts of the country, incorporating a landscape which ranges from the moorland of the Southern Upland Hills to the bays, inlets and sandy beaches of the distinctive coastline. This is a rural county which has been relatively unscathed by modern industry, where agriculture and tourism thrive to form the backbone of the local
economy. South west Scotland is well known for the quality of its field sports and the area offers boundless opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast, such as salmon and sea fishing on the nearby Cree, Bladnoch and Luce as well as sea fishing in Wigtown
and Luce Bay. In addition, driven or walked up shooting is available on many local estates and for the golf enthusiast there are a number of excellent golf courses within easy reach of Airyolland. Given the proximity to the coastline there are good opportunities for all water sports with safe anchorages found at Port William and the nearby Isle of Whithorn.
Airyolland is a highly productive residential, arable and stock rearing farm. The farm has been improved and modernised in the last five years. The late Georgian farmhouse with three reception rooms and five bedrooms sits in a stunning position with panoramic views over Luce Bay towards the Mull of Galloway and the Isle of Man. To the north of the farm steading is a recently modernised cottage and
adjacent to this is a derelict cottage with consent for demolition and the erection of a new cottage. There is a further stone cottage which could be renovated to provide extra accommodation or could be let as a holiday house. The modern and traditional farm steading are complemented by the land lying within a ring fence with good access tracks, which provide excellent rotational grazing of all field enclosures. Airyolland Farm extends in total to 232.29 Ha (573.99 Acres) in all and an acreage schedule is provided in these sale particulars.
