and woodland plantations. The farmland has been previously let out on a seasonal basis for sheep and cattle, prior to that approximately 30 highland cattle plus followers were run in hand on the farm by the current owners. The woodland provides a natural environment for wildlife as well as excellent shelter
for livestock during hasher periods of weather. The land has been principally classified as Grade 4.1 with areas of Grade 4.2 and Grade 5.2 by the James Hutton Institute and is generally of a northerly aspect rising from 85m to 120m above sea level.
