The land at Dalquhairn is situated to the west of Irongray Church and is adjacent to Dalquhairn Farm. The land is being offered in two lots and comprises of both mowing, grazing land, potential planting land and an area of established commercial woodland. The land is located in an area known for its long grass growing seasons and is in a fertile and accessible region of Southwest Scotland.

This area of Southwest Scotland enjoys one of the most varied and picturesque landscapes within Scotland, ranging from the moorland of the Southern Upland Hills to the bays and sandy beaches of the distinctive coastline. This is a rural county where agriculture and tourism thrive to form the backbone of the local economy. The area has been relatively unscathed by modern industry.

Comprising of 3 field enclosures and two areas of woodland amounting to about 30.77 hectares (76.03 acres). The agricultural land ranges from first class mowing land adjacent to the Cairn Water to two fields of permanent pasture, which benefit from 3.91 hectares of mature amenity woodland providing an exceptional shelter belt. It is noted that in field 3 of the sale plan, there is the remnants of a former dwelling, it therefore may be the case that a lifestyle property could be created, subject to the normal planning constraints. It is further noted that the sporting rights are included in the sale.

Amounting to about 58 hectares (133.31 acres), comprising of about 85.6 acres of established commercial woodland, which we understand was planted circa 1990. The plantation comprises of mainly Sitka, Larch, Ash and Rowan. The plantation is extremely well-grown and with the inclusion of an additional 57.6 acres of potential planting land, affords any potential purchaser to operate a small-scale forestry portfolio.

It is noted that servitude rights of access will be granted for forestry purposes only and for use only by the subjects of this sale and not adjoining properties. These rights will be granted between points ‘A’ & ‘B’ on the sale plan. Area 7 on the sale plan, will comprise of approximately 2 hectares (4.94 acres), which is part of a larger field and a new fence will require to be erected between points ‘X’ & ‘Y’.

Some of the land contained within Lot 1 benefits from region 1 entitlements and given that the lands form part of a larger holding, there may be some entitlements available and any enquiries in this respect should be directed to Threave Rural.
