Lot 2: West Sunnybraes ruins and field
This block of land extends to 20.5 acres of mainly ploughable south-facing, recently reseeded grassland with the Saline Burn on its south boundary. West Sunnybraes ruins lie at its east end with a road along its full north side. There is a ruin in the field which has medium to long term potential to secure planning consent for a house. The field is in excellent condition. It has good fencing, a burn water supply and a mains electricity line going through it. Vehicular access is through Killernie Farm (see plan). There is a condition on the road that the land can be used for agriculture, grazing, silage. The access right states: ‘Right of pedestrian, agricultural and vehicular access and that for agricultural (including silage transport), sporting (including for vermin controllers used by the Retained Subjects Proprietors) and forestry (including non-commercial timber haulage).’
Lot 3
20 acres of land including a tree shelter belt and a burn which is set in an attractive sheltered area. A section of the land is quite hard and not boggy. Unfortunately there is a condition from the wind turbine company that they would have to approve of any structure being built within 600 metres of the wind turbine. The whole area sits within this perimeter.

Potential Section 75 equestrian house plot for lots 2 + 3
If a purchaser bought Lot 3 they should be able to secure planning consent for a mobile home and then a section 75 house two years after running a business on the land.
