A block of productive grassland with an established hardwood plantation.
The land at Kirkbean lies to the north of the village of Kirkbean in Dumfriesshire, an area renowned for its productive farmland. The market town of Dumfries is just over 12 miles to the north of the property.
The land forms a ring-fenced block situated to the east of the A710 and bound to the east and south by the Carse Pow and the Kirkbean to Carsethorn road respectively. Extending to about 65 acres in total, the farmland is divided into three enclosures and extends to approximately 55 acres. It rises on a slope from the Carse Pow to the A710 and lies between 5 metres and 30 metres above sea level. It is classified by the James Hutton Institute as Class 3(2) and 4(1), with a strip of class 6(1) adjacent to the Carse Pow. To the northwest of the block is a parcel of woodland extending to about 10.5 acres. It was planted approximately 7 years ago with hardwood (oak and cherry) trees and benefits from deer fencing.
