The farmland has principally been classified as a mix of Grade 3.2, 4.2, and 5.2 by the James Hutton Institute.The mixed farming system has been centred on a mix of cereals, potatoes, and temporary grass, and all of the land has benefited from regular applications of farmyard manure generated from the Seller’s existing livestock enterprise which comprises approximately 60 suckler cows with followers with sheep brought in over the winter months. However historically the farm has run upwards of 200 sucklers with 200 sheep.The arable land can be worked to a good depth and a continuous programme of ditching and drainage works, has ensured that the land is farmed to its maximum potential. In addition, a significant proportion of all existing fences have been renewed in recent years. The fields are all well laid out and are of a generous size and can easily accommodate modern machinery with the majority of the enclosures having access to natural source or mains water supplies.The majority of the enclosures to the north of the farm and adjacent to the settlement boundary of Comrie are predominantly down to cereals or used for fodder production with one field currently let for potatoes, with the remainder of the land split between productive pasture and grazing ground. A schedule of the cropping history is contained at the end of this brochure.There are several small areas of woodland throughout the holding providing an element of shelter and amenity and comprising a principal area of woodland known as Cowden Woodland, with several smaller areas of mixed amenity woodland adjacent of the Water of Ruchill.DIRECTIONSFrom Perth take the A85 road signposted towards Crieff/Crianlarich and travel along this road through Crieff towards Comrie.
