Productive block of farmland on the Rhins Peninsula
The Land at Knock and Maize is located in one of the most southerly parts of Scotland on the Rhins of Galloway peninsula. The area is renowned for having a mild climate and one of the earliest growing seasons in the country. This part of southwest Scotland is well known for dairy and livestock farming, magnificent countryside and dramatic coastline. The land is located 4 miles north of the attractive coastal village of Portpatrick, with the town of Stranraer being situated only 6 miles to the northeast. The area is well served by numerous grain merchants, agricultural suppliers and contractors.
Extending to about 148.43 acres (60.07 hectares) in total, Knock and Maize forms a contiguous parcel and is readily
accessed off the public road intersecting the property. It includes 102.65 acres (41.54 hectares) of mowable pasture
and 42.6 acres (17.24 hectares) of grazing and rough pasture. The land lies between 140m and 164m above sea level and is classified by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research as predominantly Classes 5 and 6. In recent years the land has been utilised for silage production as part of a larger farming operation. There is a useful concrete framed general purpose shed (approximately 500m2 internally) located towards the western portion of Lot 1.
The land is being offered for sale in two lots, summarised as follows:
Lot 1 118.85 acres in total comprising 87.08 acres (35.24 hectares) of mowable pasture and 31.15 acres (12.61 hectares) of grazing pasture. General purpose shed.
Lot 2 29.57 acres in total comprising 15.57 acres (6.30 hectares) of mowable pasture and 11.44 acres (4.63 hectares) of grazing pasture.
Knock and Maize provides useful additional grazing and silage land to an existing farming business, but equally could be utilized for smaller grazing blocks or forestry planting.Kay Paton
