Of particular note is the privacy of the estate, being situated beside the River Dee and Loch Ken.

"The estate extends to about 1,068 acres in total.

"It is ring fenced with a number of attractive dry stone walls. It consists of 94 acres of grass leys, 134 acres of permanent pasture, 460 acres of rough grazings, 352 acres of woods, and 28 acres of miscellaneous/unclassified land.

"The farmland qualifies for agricultural grants under the Less Favoured Area Support Scheme."

If they fancy it, the new owners can take up some of the sporting activites that are currently available on the estate.

These include driven pheasant shooting, duck flighting, roe deer stalking and rough shooting for pigeon, snipe and woodcock thanks to the two miles of single bank river frontage on the River Dee.

As well as this, the estate also has a forestry element, which covers almost a third of the land.

These provide, amost other things, livestock shelter and are a mix of conifers and mixed broadleaves.

All in all, not bad a buy...if you have the budget.
