Do you have a 2 - 15 acre plot of land for sale in Scotland? I'm looking to buy ASAP and would be keen to talk to anyone who is willing to sell.

Thanks,
Alister

Hi Bipper,

I’d ideally be looking for landless than 2 hours drive from Glasgow but for the right plot I’d be happy going a bit further. I’m looking to use the land for recreational purposes and build a small off grid structure on it for my small family to use. Do you have any land that you would be looking to sell at all?

I feel I’ve signed up to them all @Highland Mule but was just wanting to see if anyone on this forum had any land that was not advertised that they were keen to sell.
Would be unusual that someone would be keen to sell but hadn’t advertised.

Plenty crofts out there in Caithness and Sutherland, last I looked, and quite a few house plots on the west coast too.

What’s the budget?

As beautiful as Caithness is I’d ideally be looking for somewhere closer to Glasgow.

Try the local crofting/farming Facebook pages. Also land agents and solicitors. Quite a few house agents getting about these days. Don't forget to check out rain fall figures and midge numbers!o_O

Thanks @Dry Rot I’ve signed up to a few. Could you recommend any?
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors used to produce a book listing all the surveyors, you might be able to access a copy through the public library service. Try searches on FB using specific key words, e.g. "Highland", etc. so "Highland Farming", etc. should come up. Solicitors have their own groups. The Law Society? Public librarians are trained to help in these sort of searches.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
