About this property

  • Situation
    The land at Catherinefield lies 3 miles to the north of the town of
    Dumfries, to the east of the A701 and on the edge of the area known as Locharbriggs, a semi-rural suburb of Dumfries.

    The land forms a single block of grazing land with access leading
    off Catherinefield Road. It is bound by the Lochar Water on all sides with a railway sleeper bridge over the water course providing access from the west of the land. Extending to about 52 acres in total, the farmland is restricted to grazing only and is generally flat with an altitude of 15 metres to 25 metres above sea level. It is classified by the James Hutton Institute as class 4(2). The land has LFA status. It is understood that the land was part of the land drainage scheme under the Land Drainage (Lochar Water) Improvement Order 1970. This scheme involved the diversion of water from the Lochar Water into the ‘New Cut' burn which runs along the western boundary of the site.
