Offered for Sale
Offers Over £870,000
The land at Newlaw is situated about one mile northwest of the village of Dundrennan in Southwest Scotland. The area is distinctly rural in character with agriculture and tourism forming the backbone of the local economy. The region is noted for its fertile and productive grassland. The land lies in a climatically favoured area which is known for its mild climate and long growing season. This has contributed to it being recognised as one of the most productive livestock rearing and dairying areas in the United Kingdom.
The subjects are within easy reach of both Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright, which provide all essential services with the regional centre of Dumfries, some 33 miles distant from the farm.
THE LAND AT NEWLAW
The Land at Newlaw extends in total to 467.04 acres (189.01 hectares) to include the areas occupied by the farm steading, access tracks, amenity woodland and Newlaw Moss. The agricultural land is contained within a ring fence in clearly defined field enclosures. At present the land is all down to grass for grazing or mowing, but it is noted that a number of the fields have, in the past, been cropped for cereals and for other forage crops. The land at Newlaw benefits from good road frontage with various access points and an internal hardcore roadway. At the southern end of the land there is a useful modern livestock handling facility, with arrangements for loading at the roadside.
The land rises from about 80m above sea level to 183m at Newlaw Hill and is mainly classified within yield classes 4² to 5² of the Macaulay Land Capability Scale as produced by the James Hutton Institute. Within the boundaries of the farm, and contained within the total acreage, are about 16 acres of amenity woodland, which were planted under Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme in 2005 / 2006. A further area of about 21.5 acres, known as the Newlaw Moss, is designated as a SSSI and is located at field 12 on the sale plan, which forms part of the sales particulars.of the Basic Payment Scheme, as regions 1 & 2 and the majority of the land is currently tenanted by a neighbouring farmer under a Short Limited Duration Tenancy (5 years ending 27th November 2017). We understand that the tenant has included the subjects within their IACS / SAF submissions as forage hectares and has benefited from both the basic payment, greening payment and LFASS over the entire subjects.
THE STEADING AT NEWLAW
Located to the south eastern edge of the land is a small steading comprising a pole barn of monopitch cantilever construction, with box profile cladding, a large former cattle corral and a purpose built stable block which benefits from both mains water and electricity supplies.
BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS
The land at Newlaw has benefited from a Basic Payment Entitlement but given most of the property has been let on a Short Limited Duration Tenancy, the Sellers will use their best endeavours to transfer (with land) all and any entitlements that may be made available. The Sellers will not be held responsible for any siphon which may be applied to any transfer. The Basic Payment Entitlements equate to 123.12 region 1 & 20.20 region 2.
