Full description

Ballygreggan Farm is an attractive and well equipped dairy farm situated on the Kintyre Peninsula on the West Coast of Scotland. The farm is situated in some of the best agricultural land found on the Peninsula with Machrihanish Bay and the Atlantic Coast lying only a short distance to the west.

The small settlement of Drumlemble lies a short distance away from the farm on the B842 where a local primary school and Post Office can be found, whilst Campbeltown with its larger range of shops, schools and professional services lies 3.5 miles to the east. Campbeltown Airport is situated just to the north of the farm and offers regular flights to Glasgow. Glasgow is also accessible via the A83 from Campbeltown and is 135 miles distant by road.
The Kintyre Peninsula offers a wide range of recreational pursuits. There are a number of walks throughout the area and the Kintyre Way runs the length of the Peninsula. For the golfer there is an 18-hole golf course adjacent to the village, whilst the championship course at Machrihanish, and the new Machrihanish Dunes are a short drive away. Kintyre enjoys a mild climate being on the Gulf Stream, with the beautiful Dunaverty Beach at Southend and the famous surfing beach at Westport also close by.

The ‘Kintyre Express’, a small passenger ferry, has daily trips to Ballycastle, Northern Ireland, and the summer car ferry service from Ardrossan to Campbeltown, run by Caledonian MacBrayne, offers an excellent link to the Ayrshire coast. The islands of Davaar, Gigha, Islay and Arran are also within easy reach from Kintyre.

The agricultural nature of the area ensures it is well provided for by agricultural merchants and contractors and machinery dealerships, and there are regular haulage routes to the livestock markets in, Stirling, Oban and Dalmally.

Ballygreggan has been farmed by the same family since 1875 with the seller being the fourth generation of the family to run the holding. The farming system originally centred on milking 100 - 120 dairy cows plus followers up until 3 years ago before the cows were sold, and the land and buildings are now let on a seasonal basis to number of local farmers. The parlour, bulk tank and all other fixed dairy equipment remain in situ and are included with the sale of the farm.

Ballygreggan is a well-equipped mixed farming unit situated to the south of Machrihanish Aerodrome on the Mull of Kintyre. Rising from 12m above sea level at its lowest point to the north east of the holding to 57m at the highest point south of the property, the land is of varying aspects throughout and has been classified by The James Hutton Institute as being predominantly Grade 4.2 and 5.1 with a section of Grade 3.1. The land is well suited to growing excellent crops of grass and has historically grown cereals with the majority of the pasture ground having been reseeded on a rotational basis over the past few years. All of the land has benefited from regular applications of farmyard manure and slurry generated on the farm. The farmhouse is built of traditional stone, under a series of pitched slate roofs, and forms the middle section of an impressive and well maintained steading courtyard. There is an extensive range of modern farm buildings which lie adjacent to the farmhouse and comprise modern parlour, range of cubicle sheds, indoor and outdoor silage pits, with other fodder, slurry and machinery stores

Ballygreggan Farmhouse is situated centrally within the holding and accessed via a shared private drive which leads from the B843 public road. The farmhouse forms part of the traditional courtyard steading with spectacular northerly views over the Peninsula and is of traditional stone construction set under a slate roof. The house provides spacious accommodation laid out over two floors with a number of period features and spacious public rooms. The accommodation is laid out in more detail in the floor plans contained within this brochure.

To the front of the property, enclosed by the courtyard area, there is a large area of tarmac providing car parking for a number of vehicles. To the rear of the property there is a private and south facing garden area including patio, drying green, a number of raised beds and a garden store.
