“The sale of Auchensalt Farm represents an excellent opportunity for the purchaser to establish a small farming business in a wonderful scenic area. In addition to the productive land, there are a range of modern and traditional farm buildings useful for a variety of purposes."

As well as the land, there is also a three-bedroom farmhouse present.

Commenting on the potential future of the residence, Christie said: “The farmhouse could be upgraded but there is also planning permission for the demolition of the farmhouse and the construction of a modern, five-bedroom home.

"This would offer the purchaser significant potential to increase the value of the asset and create a bespoke family home. The views from the property are outstanding.

'Significant demand'
