Calroust: opportunity arises to acquire a piece of high bird heaven

High bird heaven shoots to the top of the market

Hidden within the Bowmont Valley lies an opportunity to acquire a first-class sporting estate and fertile hill farm. New to the market, Calroust offers 1,955.38 acres of immaculately presented land, properties and shooting infrastructure.

Purchased by the current owner in 2008 with an ambition to develop an outstanding pheasant shoot, there has been significant investment into woodland and other cover, tracks and shoot infrastructure to create the world-class sporting estate that it is today.

The property is, without doubt, one of the best high bird shoots in the UK, with many of the guns returning year after year and often several times during the season to enjoy the fabulous shooting and stunning scenery.

Calroust is widely admired within the shooting sphere as an exceptional experience. David Carrie, who is regarded as one of the country’s leading Shots and who regularly shoots at Calroust, puts the quality of birds at Calroust on a par with his “Best in Britain” of Drumlanrig, Brigands and Warter Priory.

In addition to the excellent shooting, the 1,955.38 acre estate offers a fantastic opportunity for a farming enterprise. The land is ring-fenced with well-maintained stock-proof fences and rises from 260m at Calroust Burn to 561m at the summit of Windy Rig to the south of the farm on the border with England.

Situated in the heart of the Cheviot Hills, yet only a short distance from the twin villages of Town Yetholm and Kirk Yetholm and 14 miles from Kelso, Calroust provides privacy while being easily accessible and close to local amenities.

The sale of this renowned sporting estate includes three properties, planning permission for a new principal residence, a range of traditional and modern farm buildings, 105.34 acres of permanent pasture, 1,585.47 acres of rough grazings and 248.83 acres of productive and native woodland.
