Arable and pasture land for sale in lots on 95.41ac

The land at Drumbauchly Farm forms an area of productive farmland which is situated in four blocks, extending to 95.41ac in total.

It is situated in a peaceful and scenic location in rural Perthshire, approximately 1.5 miles from the village of Methven and some 6.5 miles from Perth.

The land benefits from good access on to the minor public road which links Methven to Glenalmond.

Traditionally, the Strathearn Valley is known for its fertile land, capable of producing high yields of an extensive range of crops and the surrounding area is well suited to livestock.

Duncan Barrie, partner with Galbraith, said the opportunity offered by acquisition of the land is excellent: “It is rare to have a development site accompanied by a larger area of farmland within the local area, and we expect a considerable degree of interest in this property.

Rolling pasture and arable land

“The agricultural land is a mix of rolling pasture and arable, all of which is currently down to grazing but has historically been used for cereals and potatoes,” commented Duncan.

“The land has been classified as Grade 3 by the James Hutton Institute and the individual fields are of a good size and are enclosed by stock fencing.

“The land benefits from good access from the minor public road known as College Road which splits the holding and leads north west out of Methven towards Glenalmond.”

The individual fields are of a good size and are enclosed by a combination of rylock and post and wire fencing.

Lot 1

The farmland in Lot 1 comprises a productive block of arable and pasture land extending to 38.52ac, which surrounds the development site and is bound to the south by Carse Burn and to the north by the adjacent Stottleburn Woodland.

Commenting on the residence, Duncan said:

The current owners have secured consent to build a substantial five-bedroom home on the land, in an elevated position, which will benefit from panoramic views.

“The purchasers will therefore be able to build a property in a style of their choosing in a very private spot, surrounded by attractive countryside.

“This is a desirable part of Perthshire but it is also very accessible to Perth and the major roads network,” he detailed.

The finished dwelling would provide for spacious and modern family accommodation whilst maximising natural light into the property and allowing for uninterrupted views to the south.

Lot 2
