Crailloch Farm is situated in a secluded yet accessible rural location about 13.5 miles southwest of Newton Stewart and about 20.5 miles east of Stranraer. Crailloch Farm is an exceptional stock rearing and feeding farm benefitting from a three-bedroom farmhouse, modern farm steading and about 345 acres of agricultural land. The property is accessed by way of an impressive, tarred driveway crossing the Water of Malzie which forms part of the farms boundary.Crailloch is a highly productive stock rearing unit with the land classified as mainly yield classes 4 & 5 of the Macaulay Land Capability Scale as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The land is fertile, well drained and fenced with access tracks and shelter belts, which give an excellent degree of sporting potential.
The farmhouse at Crailloch has been a wonderful family home for many years which has been sympathetically modernised and maintained to a really high standard, benefitting from an elevated site with far reaching views across the open countryside.
The steading comprises of a range of modern farm buildings of mainly steel portal construction. The buildings are linked on both sides of an extensive concrete yard and have been configured for usage either for cattle or sheep.
This bespoke farm steading has been designed for ease of use and safety of the handler and allows one person to carry out all livestock tasks. A handling race for cattle is also under cover with the sheep system adjacent to the yard. The steading is extremely well-maintained and incorporates a workshop and other storage facilities. The large enclosed concrete yard is utilised for fodder storage and the entire steading benefits from mains water and electricity. An aerial photograph is included as part of these particulars and gives a true reflection on the size and scope of the accommodation.
