The land comprises a “ring fenced” block of mixed grassland, totalling approximately 12.51 Ha (30.91 acres) divided into two fields of mainly permanent pasture grazings with a number of mature and semi-mature “fence line” trees.
The land is fenced, with a number of stone walls in places. Stock drinking is provided from natural spring supplies.
The land lies at a height of between approximately 190 metres above sea level, along the western boundary, to approximately 260 metres above sea level, within the north-east corner and roughly along the eastern boundary. The topography is sloping with both moderate and steep slopes in places and all retaining a mainly westerly aspect.
The land is located approximately two miles north of Peebles and 21 miles south of Edinburgh, within the Eddleston Water valley. The surrounding area comprises a mixture of similar agricultural and farm woodland areas.
Post Code: EH45 8PL. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on a Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any scheduled viewing.
Traveling south from Edinburgh on the A701, continue straight on at the Leadburn junction onto the A703 and travel south for approximately 5 miles. Carry on through the village of Eddleston and continue for approximately a mile and a half. Field gate access to the land is on the left had side, approximately 100m beyond the Cringletie House Hotel entrance. There is space for vehicles to park off the public road and access the field gate.
From Peebles, travel north on the A703 for approximately three miles. Turn right off the A703 approximately 100m before the Cringletie House Hotel entrance, at the same access point, as described above.
