Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The land extending to 2,500 acres is characterised by gentle rolling moorland, peatland and enclosed grazing/mowing land, forming an enchanting and diverse property.

The majority of the land is made up of undulating heather ground and peatland which is home to an abundance of flora and fauna including the rare Sphagnum Majus moss. The scattered wet splashes create a diverse and rich environment for wildlife and provides a welcoming habitat for a number of rare bird species. The topography of the land offers a vegetation rich feeding ground for deer and the woodland to the north of the estate provides valuable shelter in inclement weather. As a result, the land holds red hinds and has a large resident red deer population, along with a few roe deer. The Estate offers challenging and exciting stalking opportunities for all abilities. The current owners do not shoot the deer heavily, only taking around 7 stags a year. However, we believe there is scope to increase cull figures and still maintain healthy deer stocks. The Estate is an active member of the Northern Deer Management Group.

The rolling heather ground to the west of the estate is an ideal habitat for snipe, woodcock and the occasional grouse and offers good walked up shooting. For those seeking additional sport there is scope to utilise some of the existing hill lochans as duck flighting ponds.

The enclosed grazing/mowing land extends to 25.6 acres (10.4 Ha) and is conveniently located adjacent to the surrounding the house/buildings. This land is naturally watered and offers improved grazing for sheep or cattle and currently provides one cut of silage a year; it could be used as pony paddocks.

Crofting

The property is registered as owner occupied croft land, whereby the proprietor is the owner of the land outright and there is no crofting tenant. There are no third-party interests. The purchaser would therefore become an owner-occupier crofter in terms of the Crofting Acts.

As a croft there are a number of significant capital grants available for the improvement and management of the land. These include schemes for woodland creation, habit restoration and the renovation of the cottage.
