FARMLAND
The farmland at Wester Gartchonzie provides the
basis of an outstanding upland farming unit. The
moor provides excellent summer grazings with the
in-bye pasture allowing for a productive block of
improved pasture ground. The woodlands provide
a natural environment for wild pheasants as well as
many roe deer, but also provide excellent shelter for
livestock during harsher periods of weather. The land has been let on a seasonal basis for sheep and cattle for the last 4 years, but prior to that
approximately 30 Highland Cattle plus followers
were run in hand on the farm by the current owners.

The land is generally of a northerly aspect rising
from 79m above sea level at it lowest point adjacent
to Loch Venachar to 414m above sea level at its
highest point being Ben Gullipen adjacent the
telecom masts to the south west of the property.

The land extends to a total of 243.49 Ha (601.66
Acres).
