Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built between 1810 and 1820, Kinloch was one of the principal farms of the Pitfour Estate, based at Pitfour House, the ‘Blenheim of the North’ about 12 miles west of the house.

The House
Set in 8 acres of garden and policies, the house sleeps 15 and has 8 bedrooms (including the annex), six of them ensuite. There’s an additional large family bath and shower room.

The Farm
572 acres including 107 acres of dunes and 55 acres woodland. The land is mostly grade 3.2, is gently rolling, rises to 130’ above sea level and has a mostly SSE aspect. Unusually, the Kinloch title extends to the low water mark which at low tide can add as much as 200 acres.

The Business
In addition to the traditional agricultural enterprises, a 650kW biomass boiler now provides all the heating and hot water requirements of the house and cottage as well as heating workshops and ancillary buildings. A drying floor, heated by the boiler, provides dry woodchips not just for Kinloch but for other local biomass installations as well. Not only does the biomass eliminate expenditure on oil, the government supports the saving on fossil fuels by paying the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which is an index linked contract with a further 17 years to run. There are good prospects for wind and solar projects to be explored.

The Woodland
Approximately 55 acres in areas ranging from 1.5 acres to 15 acres. About 10 acres is mixed hardwoods.

The Shoot
Until quite recently, Kinloch was a highly regarded low ground shoot with partridges and pheasants released in roughly equal numbers. The
topography of the ground, the game crops and hedgerows all combined to make a challenging shoot. However it is now run very much as a rough family shoot providing both driven and walked up game. There is exciting wildfowling and roe stalking.

The Beach
There are 107 acres sand dunes held in place
by marram grass. With steep, sandy bowls
and gullies the dunes are great for adventures,
barbecues and bracing walks. Wild flowers
abound in spring and summer and in the
winter, woodcock rest here on their migration
from eastern Europe.

NOTE
There is a slight discrepancy in the southern boundary of lot 4. The correct boundaries as per the title plan for lot 4 are shown in the photographs.

General additional information relating to all four lots is available on request.
