About this property

  • Elphinstone Tower Farm is a productive arable holding equipped with an extensive range of buildings and a two bedroom cottage. Extending to about 464 acres in total, the land is split across 14 fields and includes 408 acres of arable ground, 3.95 acre paddock and 45 acres of woodland and rough grazing.

    The land lies between 100m and 150m above sea level and is contained within a contiguous block, intersected only by a public road, which together with the network of internal tracks enables easy access across the holding. The fields are well laid out and of a generous size easily accommodating large machinery.

    The soils across the farm have an excellent working depth and are described as a medium loam derived from the Rowanhill soil association characterised by Brown soils and Mineral gleys, and are capable of growing excellent yields of cereal crops. The present farming system is based on a rotation involving winter wheat, winter barley, spring barley, spring beans and winter oil seed rape. Potatoes have not formed part of the recent rotation but have been grown in the past.

    The holding is farmed in-hand as part of a larger farming enterprise including other land in the area which may be available to rent in addition. The farm is offered for sale as a whole or in up to three lots which can be summarised as follows:

    Lot 1 - Elphinstone Tower Farm, 203 acres - offers over £1,500,000
    Lot 2 – Land West of Elphinstone Tower, 153 acres - offers over - £970,000
    Lot 3 – Land at Tower Hill, 107 acres - offers over - £780,000
