General Purpose Shed - Approx. 17.5m x 8m
A useful general purpose shed which is currently used for storage.  The shed is constructed of a Steel Portal Frame with corrugated iron clad sides and roof and a concrete floor. There are two  arrays of solar PV panels on the roof which supplies the farmhouse and generates a useful annual income.
 
There is also a small wood store a short distance west of the farmhouse.
 
Woodland
The current owners at Succoth Farm have carried out a substantial program of mixed woodland planting which adds to the overall amenity of the property.  With reference to the attached plan, approximately 29.2 Ha (land parcels 1 and 2), were planted in 1994 and approximately 14.18 Ha (land parcels 3, 4, 7 and 9) was planted in 2003. Both were planted under Woodland Grant Schemes and it is understood there is no further grant income due. 
 
The woodland comprises a broad mix of native broadleaves including elder, gean, alder, rowan and ash along with Scots pine. This species diversity, along with pockets of open space and natural regeneration, provide a visually appealing aspect to the woodland whilst also providing shelter to the property and ample firewood for domestic use.
 
The remaining land at Succoth Farm comprises hill grazing,  ploughable fields, riparian areas and permanent pasture.  There is also a trout pond on the southern boundary of land parcel 2.

Situation
Succoth Farm enjoys a secluded and elevated position commanding spectacular views of the surrounding hills and River Deveron valley.  The property is situated close to the hamlet of Haugh of Glass, between Dufftown and Huntly in Aberdeenshire. The peaceful rural setting, woodland and open hill ground are a haven for wildlife including pine martens and birds of prey as well as providing sporting potential for deer and reared gamebirds.  Succoth Farm could be considered a small estate, with a spacious 3/4 bedroom farmhouse, versatile outbuilding, extensive woodland, sporting and agricultural opportunities.

 
The town of Huntly provides a wide range of shops, supermarkets, healthcare, sports facilities and a mainline railway station.  Dufftown in the west also provides local amenities and is situated in the heart of Speyside, the world renowned malt whisky region.  There are many recreational and leisure opportunities in the area including walking routes, golf courses, fishing on the River Deveron, the Nordic Ski and Outdoor Centre in Huntly and ski centres at The Lecht and the Cairngorms.
 
Primary education is found at the nearby Glass Primary School (4 miles) with secondary education available at The Gordon Schools in Huntly (8 miles). School transport is available with a pick up point at the end of the farm road. 
 
The City of Aberdeen (41 miles) provides theatre, two universities and shopping facilities far surpassing most other cities of its size.  In addition, Aberdeen has a mainline railway station providing inter-city and sleeper services to the south and also an airport operating regular flights to London and other UK cities, as well as overseas destinations.

Entry
By agreement.
