The land situated at the front of the main house running toward the river is good arable land suitable for growing a variety of crops. There is also sufficient land available with the property to afford the opportunity to create areas of native woodland for carbon capture or carbon credits.

A hard-standing suitable for a new agricultural building is also available. The Crofting Agricultural Grants (Scotland) Scheme provides grants for the erection and improvement of agricultural buildings and the provision of fences, hedges, walls, gates and the improvement of amenities.
