LOCATION
The land lies about 5 miles northeast of the village of Canonbie, about 5.5 miles south of Newcastleton, and about 9 miles southeast of Langholm, with the City of Carlisle at Junction 44 on the M6 Motorway lying about 17 miles to the southwest. The land has frontage onto a minor public road. For directions to the property please see the attached Location Plan.

DESCRIPTION
The property is shown edged in red on the Sale Plan and extends to some 41.87 hectares (103.46 acres). It is believed that the Liddel Water (excluding its south bank) lies within the southern boundary of the property, but this is to be confirmed. Part of the Muir Burn runs inside the property's eastern boundary. Whilst these areas of water are included in the property, they are excluded from any area measurements used in these Particulars. The property is bounded by the B6357 public road immediately to the north.

The property includes about 30.37 hectares (75.04 acres) of permanent grass and rough grazing, appearing as fields 1 - 10 on the attached Sale Plan. The bulk of the rough grazing is in field 2, but there are some smaller areas scattered in parts of some of the remaining parcels, which are otherwise down to permanent grass.

All of the agricultural land (except for Field 5) is served by water troughs which are connected to the main water supply.

There are also about 11.14 hectares (27.53 acres) of woodland/riverbank included in the property. Of this, there is a small parcel of mature woodland situated to the west of Bankhead Farmhouse, measuring around 0.21 hectare (0.52 acre). The remaining 10.93 hectares (27.01 acres) of woodland/banking lies mainly at the east and south of the property, alongside the Muir Burn and the Liddel Water. The woodland includes a variety of tree species of different ages, adding to the sporting and amenity value of the property.

The property includes a track running from the B6357 public road to Bankhead Farmhouse, together with an adjacent parking/ hardstanding area, which serves the agricultural land.

Bankhead Cottage and Bankhead Farmhouse and steading, and any associated land, are not included in the sale. These excluded properties are shown coloured in yellow and edged in red for identification purposes on the attached Sale Plan.

PHOTOGRAPHS
For avoidance of doubt, it is pointed out that photographs included in these Particulars have been taken at different seasons of the year, some time prior to the preparation of this brochure.

LAND STATUS
We understand that the Scottish Government has provisionally allocated all of the agricultural land to Payment Region 1 for the purpose of the new Basic Payment Scheme.

All of the agricultural land lies in the Less Favoured Area and is categorised as Severely Disadvantaged by the Scottish Government.

RIGHTS & BURDENS
The land is sold subject to all rights including rights of way, whether public or private, rights of light, support, drainage, water and electricity supplies and other rights, obligations and servitudes/easements, and restrictive covenants and all existing and proposed wayleaves for masts, pylon stays, cables, drains and water, gas and other pipes, whether constituted in the title deeds or not. In addition:-

The property is to be sold subject to the reservation of a heritable and irredeemable servitude right of pedestrian and vehicular access from the public road to Bankhead Farmhouse and steading, along the route of the existing track marked A - C on the attached sale plan, for the benefit of the occupiers of Bankhead Farmhouse and steading and those authorised by them.

The property will be sold subject to a servitude right of pedestrian and vehicular access from the public road to Bankhead Cottage, along the route of the existing track marked A - B on the attached sale plan, for the benefit of the occupiers of Bankhead Cottage and those authorised by them.

The responsibility for maintenance and repair of the existing track shall be shared on a user basis between the purchaser, and the owners of Bankhead Farmhouse and Bankhead Cottage. The right of access over the track enjoyed by the owner of the Bankhead Farmhouse property is on the basis of its present state (i.e., one dwelling and farm buildings only), and the owner of the Bankhead Farmhouse may upgrade the track only with the permission of the owner of the track.

The property will be sold with the benefit of a servitude right of pedestrian access, from the private track currently serving Whitlawside Cottage, which lies to the west of the property, along the pathway, to Point X, as shown on the attached Sale Plan.

The owner of Bankhead Farmhouse and steading has a servitude right to use the water supply pipe located within field 5 (which serves a water trough on land immediately to the south of that field), and to access the same for inspection, maintenance, repair and renewal purposes. Prior to the date of entry, the field trough currently serving Field 5 is to be removed from the property and onto land immediately to the south of that field, so that it then serves only the land forming part of the Bankhead Farmhouse property.

We are informed by the sellers that Scottish Power hold wayleave rights in respect of the power lines crossing the property for the benefit of the Bankhead Farmhouse and Bankhead Cottage properties.

It is understood that there are taildrains/outflows located within the property boundary which serve the sewage tank for Bankhead Farmhouse, and that the owner of this property has servitude rights to inspect, maintain, repair and renew these taildrains/outflows.

The responsibility for maintaining, repairing and renewing the fence along the north boundary of the land around Bankhead Cottage is to be shared between the purchaser and the neighbouring proprietor, on a 50:50 basis. The south boundary of the Bankhead Cottage land is to be treated on the same 50:50 basis.

There is a ditch running along but within the north boundary of the Bankhead Cottage property. The owner of Bankhead Cottage will be obliged in the future to maintain and keep this ditch clear, whilst the purchasers of the property will be granted a reasonable right to deepen or improve the ditch for agricultural purposes.
