Full description

Closing date set for 12 noon on Friday 21st September 2018.

Located close to Banchory off a minor public road to the south of the River Feugh. The farmland is approached along a track through an area of native birch woodland which is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. It has not been disturbed for many years and is a lovely place in which to wander and relax on one’s way down to the river. The haugh field is well screened beside the river and has an atmosphere of peace and seclusion. The field lies at about 75 metres above sea-level and is classified 3(2) by the Hutton Institute Land Capability maps.

Included in the sale will be part of the bank of the River Feugh. The Glen Dye Estate owns the salmon fishings, but on the basis that the bank is owned by the seller, the rights to fish for trout are included. The opposite bank is actively managed for salmon fishing. The Burn of Affrusk forms the eastern boundary.

Blackness is situated 20 miles west of Aberdeen, it is easily accessible to Banchory and lies in the parish of Strachan.

This is a beautiful unspoilt rural area. The picturesque hamlet of Strachan is located a mere 2 miles from Banchory and benefits from a local shop, post office and village hall. Primary and secondary education are at Banchory.

Banchory itself is a thriving town with a wide range of shops, a supermarket, several churches, golf courses, hotels and provides most of one’s everyday needs.

The North East of Scotland is a vibrant area with the prosperity from Aberdeen and all the oil related companies permeating into the local economy, there are therefore some excellent restaurants and shops, but at the heart of the area is the attractive countryside with its mixture of farmland, woodlands and heather hills. The area is also a mecca for sportsmen with salmon fishing on the River Dee, quality grouse and pheasant shooting, roe stalking and golf.
