LOT 3B: CASTLECRAIG LAND EAST AND PIG UNIT
(About 514.80 acres)

LAND
The land within Lot 3B is a good combination of arable, pasture, woods, and scrub/cliff. It is mostly classified as grade 3, with the pasture classified as grade 4 and grade 5 next to the coastline. Lying within a ring fence, it comprises 169.98 acres arable, 184.87 acres permanent pasture, 8.16 acres rough grazings, 77.81 acres woods and 73.98 acres of scrub/cliff/miscellaneous ground.

The land faces mainly south. The grazing fields are fenced for livestock and are served by a private water supply. A farm road passes through
the centre of the farm.

Circa 77.81 acres are categorised as woods within Lot 3B and are in four principal blocks. A Felling Licence (Licence Number: FLA00097) was granted to fell the largest block situated at the northeast of Lot 3B (numbered 40 on the Lotted sale plan) and known as Pond Wood. This wood was felled in 2016 and required an extension of the farm road
which provides useful access running the full width of the land. The purchaser will be responsible for the conditions within the Felling Licence in relation to the restocking and future maintenance of Pond Wood.

A second area lying to the south of the pig unit (numbered 32 and 35 on the Lotted sale plan) is also encompassed within the Felling Licence which grants permission to thin the wood. This work has been completed and there is no obligation to replant. Further information is available from the selling agents.

PIG UNIT
A high-health pig unit has a standalone location in the heart of Castlecraig Farm and at the west of Lot 3B. It is accessed off the internal farm road and was established in 1970. An advantage is its
private situation, away from residential properties and other livestock, ensuring control of disease. It includes an office block and weaner unit,
with the ability to go from farrow to finish and housing for all progeny.

The unit has a private water supply sourced from a spring and supplied via a syphon and pump system. There is a back-up mains water supply.
