CLOSING DATE SET FOR WEDNESDAY, 10 August 2016 AT 12 NOON.

Corston Mill Farm stands in a most attractive and impressive rural setting mid-way between the villages of Strathmiglo and Gateside in the Howe of Fife, about twelve miles to the west of Fife's bustling and thriving county market town of Cupar. The farm lies in an area of beautiful rolling countryside and productive farmland in a dramatic picturesque location with open aspects to the Lomond Hills.

Strathmiglo and Gateside are close by and provide a useful range of local shops and services with a wider offering being provided in Cupar. Perth is no more than a twenty minute drive from Corston Mill with Dundee about half an hour distant over the Tay Bridge, between them offering the full range of city shops, services and amenities. Some thirty minutes to the east lies St Andrews, the ancient and historic university town world renowned as the "home of golf" with a superb cosmopolitan mix of shops, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions. The fine countryside around Corston Mill is home to an array of wildlife and, for the outdoor enthusiast, offers ready access to an excellent range of recreational pursuits including walking, cycling, riding and golf, with many highly rated courses within comfortable reach including numerous fine courses in and around St Andrews where The Old Course regularly plays host to the British Open Championship. Challenging fishing and shooting may be taken locally with the varied and interesting Fife coastline within comfortable driving distance. In terms of days out, the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the excellent sandy beaches at Tentsmuir, St Andrews and Elie, are well within striking distance. There are also a number of interesting National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Falkland Palace and Hill of Tarvit Mansion House. State schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St Leonards in St Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are mainline railway stations in Markinch, Ladybank and Cupar with Edinburgh Airport about a 35 minute drive to the south. The busy regional airport at Dundee also offers a good selection of short-haul flights.

The Buildings
The farmhouse, steading and mill lie centrally within the farm with a pair of semi-detached traditional farm cottages which are set under a pantile roof situated a short distance to the west. The majority of the farm buildings and farmhouse are intact to wall head level, with the exception of the stone barn, bothy and former mill which sit under a mix of pantile and slate roofs respectively. Subject to all permissions and planning consents being obtained it is believed that there may be scope to develop the buildings for residential use.

The Farmland
The farmland at Corston Mill extends to approximately 81.76 Ha (202.03 Acres) in total and is classified principally as Grade 3.1 and 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute. The farm steading lies at approximately 80m above sea level and the land has a generally southerly aspect and is split into 20 enclosures as shown on the farm boundary plan within these particulars. The River Eden flows through the farm and the land is capable of growing a wide range of cereals, potatoes, vegetables and other crops.
