Secluded garden grounds and enchanting woodland and burn envelope the farmhouse comprising mature trees and decorative shrubs, lush garden lawn and decorative patio with a full-circle driveway and ample parking provided at the rear.

Both buildings have electricity and piped water installed. Combined, the buildings have over ten stable boxes.

A short tree-lined, walk from the yard takes you to the 30 x 40m silica sand, flood-lit manège enclosed with timber fencing and surrounded by adjacent paddocks. The paddocks, equating to 2.31Ha (5.71 acres) or thereby are well fenced and served with piped water troughs providing excellent equestrian grazing. The yard and paddocks have a good level of tree and shrubbery planting providing shelter as well as the Mossat Burn, attracting a wide variety of wildlife birds. Newmill is the perfect home for those nature enthusiasts due to the diverse range of wildlife that frequents the area. As well as the joyful song of many species of birds in the skies above, the burn and woodlands attracts many species of wildlife including otters, red squirrels, heron, black cap with the occasional sighting of the elusive Scottish wildcat.

“Newmill offers the potential to diversify into a holiday or glamping business, or perhaps to merge into equestrian holidays and staff ’away-days’ for local businesses and visitors.”


The south-facing traditional stone-and-slate steading at Newmill has a floor area of around 360sq.m and comprises a generous workshop with adjoining bothy and studio area as well as general purpose storage and tractor / implement shed. Subject to Local Authority consents, the steading offers excellent potential to be converted for a variety of purposes including a residential annexe or holiday accommodation, business use or could be converted for additional stables and dedicated equestrian therapy/wellbeing provision.
