Gowmacmorran Farm is a productive dairy farmsituated in a private rural position within the South Lanarkshire countryside. The village of Forth is only 2 miles away and provides a number of local day to day amenities including fuel station, several
convenience shops, village hall, and a GP surgery. The farm benefits from excellent transport links to the A71 and the M8 providing access to larger populations within Central Scotland.
There is choice of three local primary schools in Forth, Braehead and Auchengray, whilst the nearby towns of Lanark and Carluke both provide secondary schooling and are roughly equidistant at 9.5 miles away, and both have a larger selection of retailers, professional services and banking facilities. Livingston, about 16 miles to the north, offers a wider range of amenities including large shopping centres, leisure and business facilities with regular mainline rail connections to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within an hours commute of Gowmacmorran. Edinburgh and Glasgow International Airports are only about
25 and 40 miles distant respectively and offer regular domestic and international flights.
Gowmacmorran Farm is situated close to an area of extensive woodland and the hill ranges of the Southern Uplands and nearby Pentland Hills. 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 20 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. The farm lies within 10 miles of Lanark Mart and 35 miles from the two Livestock Marts in Stirling providing an excellent choice of outlets for
finished livestock produced on the holding.
The farm is equipped with an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings including parlour and cubicle housing for just over 100 cows, with a number of straw bed courts for young stock. The farmhouse requires complete modernisation
throughout and is situated centrally within the holding, adjoining a range of the traditional farm building set in a courtyard formation.
The farmland is separated into 3 principal blocks with access provided to the majority of the fields either directly from the adjoining minor public roads or via a network of farm tracks.
The farmland is all down to pasture and used for grazing and fodder production with the majority of the land located to the north and west of the B7016, and the remainder split into two smaller enclosures situated to the south and east of the B7016.
