Mill of Plunton Farm is situated within close proximity to the Solway Coast not far from the pretty village of Borgue. Mill of Plunton Farm is an exceptional stock rearing farm benefitting from a very well-presented traditional farmhouse, a farm cottage, modern and traditional farm buildings and about 220 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage).

The farmhouse at Mill of Plunton has been extremely well-maintained and sympathetically modernised within the current ownership. The dwelling has been tastefully decorated throughout and is in walk-in condition. The detached farm cottage is situated at the farm road end within its own generous garden grounds. The cottage would benefit from some cosmetic upgrading, however, provides a blank canvas for any potential purchaser.

THE LAND
Mill Of Plunton Farm extends in total to about 223.80 acres (90.57 Ha), to include the areas occupied by the farmhouse, cottages, steading, yards, access roads, etc.
The holding features 20 specific field enclosures, which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage). The land is classified as predominantly yield classes 4 and 5 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production. The grazing fields given the topography and natural cover afford grazing livestock shelter and benefit from the ability to outwinter breeding stock. The land and indeed the farm are all watered from natural sources.

BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS – IACS / SAF
The whole of the agricultural land has been allocated payment region 1 & 2. We are advised that the vendors are active farmers (as currently defined under EU Regulation 1307/2013 and the Scottish Statutory Instrument 2014/58). We are further informed that the sellers completed an IACS/SAF submission 2021 (a copy of which can be made available for inspection from the sole selling agents during normal office hours).

Mill Of Plunton Farm benefits from 79 units of region 1 and 1.65 units of region 2 entitlements with illustrative unit values of €160.66 (Euros) and€34.35(Euros)respectively. The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer any and all established Basic Payment Entitlements.
For the avoidance of doubt any such payments already applied for prior to the completion date, will be retained by the sellers, i.e., the 2021 Basic Payment, 2021 greening payment and LFASS payments.

The purchaser upon occupation of the subjects of sale will be required and be responsible to comply with the statutory management requirements and good agricultural and environmental conditions, as laid down within the cross compliance documentation 2021, this obligation expires on 31st December 2021.
