Location

Mains of Kirkbuddo is situated in the heart of Angus, some 7 miles south east of the county town of Forfar. It is almost equidistant between Forfar, Arbroath and Carnoustie. Angus is one of Scotland's most productive farming counties, extending from Dundee in the south west, up to Montrose in the north east. There is a mart in Forfar and the area is well served with grain and potato merchants, agricultural dealers, and a successful machinery ring.

Being situated adjacent to the junction of the B9127 and the B978, Mains of Kirkbuddo is well served with good communications. There is easy access north to Letham and Forfar, east to Arbroath and south to Carnoustie and Dundee.

Description

Mains of Kirkbuddo is a highly productive block of arable land, with some woodland and a good agricultural shed. It has been farmed as part of a significant farming business and is well suited to a wide range of winter and spring crops. Past cropping has included spring barley, winter wheat, peas, beans and potatoes.

In addition, at Burnside of Kirkbuddo, just to the south, there is a useful farm steading and a small paddock, which may have potential for development, subject to planning.

Lot 1 - Land at Mains of Kirkbuddo (north) About 131.68 acres (53.29 ha)

Adjacent to the B9127 is a useful modern steel framed general purpose shed (14.65 m x 36.25 m) with block walling, box profile cladding and roofing and a concrete floor, together with a side cattle court (8.75 m x 36.25 m).

The land extends to some 131.68 acres (53.29 ha) and ranges in height from 150 m to 170 m (490' to 555') and the land is classified by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research as being Class 3(1). As such it is highly productive and capable of growing a wide range of arable crops and consistently good yields. The fields are easily accessed, either directly off the B9127 or from good internal farm tracks, and are of an easily worked size. There is a block of mature conifer wood, extending to some 8.22 acres.

Lot 2 - Land at Mains of Kirkbuddo (south) About 65.77 acres (26.62 ha)


This block of land extends to some 65.77 acres (26.62 ha) and also ranges in height from 150 m to 170 m (490' to 555') and is mainly classified by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research as being Class 3(1). As such it is capable of growing a wide range of arable crops and consistently good yields. The two principal fields are adjacent to both the B978 and B9127, and are of an easily worked size. The smaller field, lying to the south, is again accessed off the B978 and has in the past been in wild bird seed.
