The Land at Glenkerran extends to approximately 162.05 Ha (400.43 Acres) in all and provides a mix of grazing land and amenity woodland. The Kerran Water runs through the property to the south with the surrounding hill ground and forestry providing an abundance of wildlife and presenting an impressive backdrop.
The land at Glenkerran extends in total to about 400 acres and rises up from around 30 m above sea level, at the Kerran Water, up to 170 m above sea level at its highest point to the south of Gartloskan Hill. The land provides an excellent mix of good in bye pasture with further grazing on the hill ground. The hill ground is well drained and a number of hill burns provide a reliable water supply.
The land has historically stocked about 250 sheep and allows for summer grazing of around 40 cattle. The land is scheduled as being principally Grade 4(1) and 5(1) by the James Hutton Institute of Soil Research with a small area of grade 6(3) to south of Gartloskan Hill.
There are a variety of smaller woodland plantations which provide additional shelter but also add to the sporting dimension.
To the north of Glenkerran there is a larger area of commercial woodland which was planted in 1988 and extends to approximately 80 acres which will provide a further source of income in about 10 years.
Please note there is a further block of 100 acres of low ground which may be available in addition. Please contact the Selling Agents for more details.
