PRIME ARABLE LAND
EASTER ROSS, IV18 0NE
Offers Over: £145,000
Contained within a single field, this prime arable land extends to approximately 11.01 hectares (27.20 Acres), and is considered productive for the region. It is generally level, easily worked and is currently in arable production. Lying approximately 20 metres above sea level and close to the Cromarty Firth, it benefits from a coastal climate which contributes to favourable cropping conditions. The James Hutton Institute Land Capability for Agriculture identifies the land as predominantly Grade 3.1, with a small corner of Grade 3.2. Grade 3.1 land is identified as being capable of producing consistently high yields of a narrow range of crops and/or moderate yields of a wider range of crops. Arable land in this region is often managed in rotations which include potatoes and other root crops, as well as oil seed rape, wheat and barley. Cultivations within the field are unimpeded. The land is a Registered Croft with the Crofting Commission.
The land is situated adjacent (east) of the mainline railway between Invergordon and Fearn, and the A9 trunk road. Access and egress is taken directly from a minor public road which forms the southern boundary. This road connects onto the A9 (west) and the B817 (east) to the south of Milton of Kildary at the settlement of Kilmuir. The settlement of Invergordon is approximately 4.5 miles to the south-west and Tain is approximately 7 miles to the north. The City of Inverness is approximately 28 miles to the south via the A9.
So far as the selling agents are aware, mains services are within close proximity. However, prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries regarding the provision of services.
As there is a requirement for an owner occupier of a registered croft to live within 32 kilometres of the croft, there may be an opportunity for certain purchasers to seek planning consent for permission to construct a house on the land.

The vendor will seek to agree a clawback provision which will be triggered in the event of planning consent being granted for development.
