54ha of prime agricultural land appears on the market near Stirling

Galbraith is marketing 133.16ac (53.89 Ha) of good quality agricultural land in a very accessible location close to Stirling and junction 10 of the M9 motorway.

The land at Dripend, Stirlingshire, presents an excellent block of well managed land which is all classified as grade 3 by the James Hutton Institute.

Alistair Christie of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:

This land will appeal to existing farming businesses in the central belt and beyond looking to expand their landholding without the need to buy infrastructure such as houses or farm buildings.

“It may also be of interest to investors looking to purchase the land as a long-term investment, meanwhile generating rental income.

“The land has been very well managed under the current ownership and is suitable for a range of arable crops or fodder production.

“The close proximity to the motorway network and agricultural services is an added advantage for the purchaser.”

Land features

The land is predominantly flat in aspect lying approximately 10m above sea level, and is accessed via a farm track which forms part of the property.

A significant drainage programme has been undertaken by the current owners with a combination of plastic and gravel drainage systems having been installed.

The land at Dripend forms part of the well-known Carse of Stirling soil, which is traditionally well suited to the growth of fodder, such as Timothy Hay and a range of arable crops which are suited to heavier clay soils.

There is a useful set of livestock handling pens and a mains water supply for livestock watering or crop management.

The property is located only half a mile from Stirling Agricultural Centre where Galbraith and United Auctions, along with a number of other businesses, work closely to service the Scottish agricultural industry.

Junction 10 of the M9 is 1.5mi distant; Blairdrummond is 1.5mi away and Stirling is 2mi away.

The land at Dripend is on the market for offers over £580,000.
