About this property

  • The land at Westruther lies to the east of Westruther village.

The site is relatively flat with attractive views over the open countryside and trees to the north east.

    The Westruther Mains plot is located in a green field site of grazing pasture and is of a size that will accommodate a detached house with a substantial garden surrounding it. The plot is positioned to offer the optimal level of privacy for the proposed dwelling and the neighbouring properties.
