One of the first commercially equipped farming enterprises to hit the market in Scotland this year is a triple bill of productive arable units – Gilrivie, Tayock and Langley Park, which lie adjacent to each other on the northern shore of the Montrose Basin

Extending to around 329 areas in total, the enterprise is centred around a practical two storey farmhouse, with family accommodation, farm office and store room.

The three farms are well equipped with an extensive range of farm buildings with storage for grain and 4000 tonnes of potatoes. In addition there are machinery stores and a range of traditional outbuildings at both Gilrivie and Tayock.

The land extends to 329 acres made up of 302 arable acres, six acres of pasture and 20.68 acres of tracks, steadings and other. The current rotation is based around spring barley and salad potatoes. In the past a wider range of arable crops have been grown, including winter wheat and oil seed rape. There is already successful 'self service' farm shop which sells home grown produce, as well as produce from other local suppliers.

Savills' Chris Thomson commented: “Collectively, these three units in Angus, a county famed for the quality of its land, are highly productive. With a good farmhouse, further residential properties which could generate additional income, as well as a substantial range of farm buildings, they are likely to attract strong interest, particularly given the limited amount of farmland currently available.

"Demand is likely to come from Scottish farmers as well as those from Northern Ireland and south of the border, as farming families aspire to acquire high quality land to protect their businesses for the future.”
