EAST BOWHOUSE ARABLE (105.41 ACRES)

The arable farmland at East Bowhouse Farm is all south facing and lies at approximately 107 metres above sea level. The land is classified by the James Hutton Institute as mainly Grade 3(1) with some Grade 3(2) parallel to the southern boundary.

It is productive arable ground which is made up of mineral podzols and the fields have access off the internal farm track, which is accessed in turn from the A911. Selected fields have been farmed in an arable rotation by way of a contract farming agreement which is due to end in September 2018 or can be terminated by the seller with three month’s notice. Selected fields are grazed under a grazing agreement, which can be terminated by the seller with two month’s notice.

The land is mostly easily worked and suited to cereals, potatoes, vegetables and turn production.

East Bowhouse Farm enjoys a peaceful location with superb south facing views.

Complementing its private setting, the farm is very accessible, being located between Edinburgh (27 miles) and Perth (22 miles) where swift access to both cities is provided by the M90 motorway.

The nearby village of Scotlandwell (1 mile) has basic day-to-day facilities, while Kinross (7 miles) provides primary and secondary schooling, supermarkets, banks, leisure facilities and a number of professional services. The closest railway stations are Markinch (9miles) and Inverkeithing (16 miles) which provide direct commuter services to Edinburgh as well as regular connections north to Aberdeen and Inverness.

Edinburgh airport is nearby (27 miles) and provides air travel connections to domestic and international destinations.

There are private schools within easy reach of the farm including Craigclowan, Glenalmond, Kilgraston, Strathallan, Dollar Academy, Fettes and St Leonards.

For the outdoor enthusiast there are many walks and cycle rides both in the Lomond Hills and around Loch Leven. Trout fishing can be rented on Loch Leven. For keen golfers, there are courses at Milnathort, Kinross and Ladybank as well as Championship courses at St Andrews and Gleneagles Resort.

There are livestock markets at Forfar and Stirling, and a wide range of agricultural suppliers and merchants who serve the district.
