**CLOSING DATE: WEDNESDAY 9th AUGUST AT 12 NOON** A PRODUCTIVE STOCK REARING FARM LOCATED ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF GATEHOUSE OF FLEET
Offered for Sale
Clauchan Farm is situated not far from the pretty village of Gatehouse of Fleet. Clauchan Farm is a fertile stock rearing farm benefiting from a modern farm steading and land lying within a ring fence. For the avoidance of doubt, Clauchan is farmed in conjunction with two other properties which are both being offered for sale at this time by Threave Rural and particulars are available (Barharrow Farm & Land at Plunton), both which lie contiguous to Clauchan.
There is no dwellinghouse at the farm, however, given the size and productivity of the unit, there may exist the opportunity to construct a house, subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted. The steading is of mainly modern construction and is currently utilised for the overwintering of both dairy young stock and a beef herd. The farm could be self sufficient in home grown forage, if it were run separately
CLAUCHAN FARM STEADING
The farm steading at Clauchan is mainly of modern construction, utilised for the overwintering of dairy young stock and a beef herd. The steading briefly comprises of four linked portal structures containing 220 cubicles with feed barriers, automatic scrapers and slatted tank. There is also an area for cattle handling and some of the feed barriers have self-locking yokes for ease of handling.
There is a further large modern farm building which houses feed and general storage, a large workshop and machinery store, along with bedded cattle courts. Adjacent to the steading is a slurry ring, two Collinson feed bins and a silage clamp.
Clauchan Farm extends in total to about 201.44 acres (81.52 ha), including the areas occupied by the steading, yards, access roads, etc. The holding features 14 specific field enclosures, which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage) or other forage crops. The land is classified as predominantly yield class 4 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm would be self-sufficient in home-grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production or cropping if run as a single unit. An access track from Clauchan leads to Barharrow which was installed as the farms were farmed as a single unit. Field 14 on the sale plan belonged to another family member and has not been registered with the AFRC-RPID, however, at completion the land maintenance form will reflect this as a first registration.
