The pretty hamlet of Straiton dates back to the 1760s. It lies in the heart of rural southwest Scotland midway between Maybole and Dalmellington (being 7 miles from both). It is just over an hour’s drive from Glasgow and half an hour from Ayr.
The Buskin Grazings are attractively located just to the east of the village. The fields are sheltered by mature woodland to the north and gently rising ground to the south. They have a warm and sunny south-westerly aspect with gentle slopes.
The grazings are of unimproved grassland punctuated by rushes, and a stream bisects the fields giving year-round water. Most of the stream is fringed with trees - principally alder with minor elements of willow and ash plus plenty of hazel. As well as being an attractive feature they also provide useful shelter for livestock. The entire perimeter is surrounded with serviceable stock fencing.
As well as offering grazing this property could be considered for woodland planting. The site is fenced, reasonably drained and thanks to the underlying brown earths has good fertility for a wide range of native species and commercial conifers.
This property also has a strong amenity element. It is sheltered but enjoys long views westwards. It has water and a small element of woodland that could be expanded. Access is excellent with road frontage and an area of hard-standing at the entrance to the property.
