Boghead & West Doura Farms, a mixed arable and livestock enterprise with farmhouses and a cottage, has entered the market.

The 492.93ac site lies in South Ayrshire and include two farmhouses, a three-bedroom cottage and agricultural sheds with productive land ranging from class 3.2 to class 4.1.

It is available as a whole for offers over £3.86 million or in four lots.

Close to Tarbolton, the farm is situated eight miles from Ayr and 30 miles from Glasgow.

Davidson & Robertson associate, Will Dalrymple, said: “It’s not every day that a farming enterprise of this calibre comes up for sale.

“It is all currently farmed as one unit and is an exceptionally well maintained property with excellent fencing, buildings, good tracks and a recently laid tarmac drive.

“Available as a whole (offers over £3.86 million) or in four flexible lots, it creates opportunities that will appeal to a range of buyers.”

Boghead Farm

Lot 1 comprises Boghead Farm, a self-contained 295.51ac unit that includes a four-bedroom farmhouse with enclosed garden.

It also has a combination traditional stone built and modern purpose built buildings and well maintained ring-fenced land.

There is also the option to develop additional accommodation subject to the necessary consents.

The traditional buildings are of traditional stone construction under pitched slate roofs and include the old milking parlour, former byres, and general purpose buildings.

These sit adjacent to a range of purpose-built modern buildings, including a grain and machinery store made of steel portal frame construction under a corrugated roof with box profile cladding and concrete panel walls over a concrete base.

There are two cattle courts, both of steel portal frame construction under corrugated roofs with concrete floors.

The first has a feed barrier running the full length of the shed and the second has 128 cattle cubicles, feed yolks, a central feed passage and automatic scrapers with tanks that are piped into the slurry towers.

They store approximately 100,000 gallons and 200,000 gallons, respectively.

Other steel portal buildings include the straw shed, a lean-to cattle handling shed with a concrete base and cattle crush and the silage pit which is understood the pit takes approximately 90ac of first cut and 40ac of second cut.

The land (predominately Class 3.2 with an area of Class 4.1), is a ring-fenced block with the exception to two paddocks which are separated by a minor road.

The arable land (207.82ac) is farmed on an arable rotation, with the remainder as permanent pasture and a small area of woodland.

The 38ac block of Class 3.2 land at Tarbolton Moss Landfill, is close by and is currently laid to permanent pasture for cattle grazing. It lies between 73 and 95m above sea level, includes a small area of woodland which is accessible from the roadside.

Lots 2-4

Lot 2 comprises 196ac of ring-fenced land (a mixture of class 3.2 and 4.1), with centrally located crop and machinery buildings.

It is currently farmed as one unit with lot 1 and would make a good extension to Boghead Farm, Davidson & Robertson said.

Lot 3 is made up of West Doura farmhouse and buildings and includes a traditional stone built farmhouse.

There is a traditional stone U-shaped courtyard in good condition that has recently been refurbished.

There is a large kitchen, living area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an opportunity to renovate and extend the accommodation.

Outside are useful outbuildings, Davidson & Robertson said.

Lot 4 comprises Knowehead Cottage and garden. It includes a traditional stone cottage with an adjoining garage and garden.

The cottage comprises a kitchen, living area, three bedrooms, and a bathroom.
