Crooklands Farm is situated close to an area of extensive woodlands and the hill ranges of the Southern Uplands and nearby Pentland Hills, home of Scotland’s first coast to coast long distance hiking trail. The local area provides a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuits with golf courses at Lanark, West Calder, Carluke and Carnwath, and there are a number of challenging shoots locally, and fishing on Cobbinshaw Loch. New Lanark World Heritage Site, approximately 11 minutes away, offers many attractions and exhibitions.
Agriculturally the surrounding area of South Lanarkshire provides an attractive location with a combination of productive pasture and arable ground with rolling hills in the distance.

Crooklands Farm is a productive and compact stock farm with an extensive range of predominantly modern framed buildings with loose bedded accommodation for over 30 head of cattle plus followers. The modern farmhouse and the majority of the farm buildings sit to the north west of the farmland which is easily accessed from the main road via an excellent network of internal tracks and comprises largely of pasture and some ploughable silage ground.
A significant capital investment has been made to the farm buildings and farmland by the current owners over the years.

To the south east of the principal farm steading there is a further range of buildings, providing further livestock housing and storage space for fodder.
