Landlord is selling up, any advice on possible investors to buy them out?

They'll be putting it on the market later this summer, Scottish Highlands, 17th century castle with walled garden, wooded driveway and lodge house. Farm has two houses and sufficient buildings and infrastructure to run 120 suckers, there's 350ac of good ground that's in rotation between grass and crop, 450ac of hill suitable for sheep. Farms valued at 1.5m, not sure on the Castle yet, can see it being a similar price as the farm.

Ideally looking to make contact with long term investor, farm value has risen 300% since early nineties so It's a good opportunity for anyone looking to avoid tax or improve carbon foot print of other business interests.

Maybe they will have watched Jeremy Clarkson by then, and think sod doing that myself!
