These lands form part of the Letterfourie Estate which is available in up to 5 lots, including Letterfourie House, which is a fine Adam house with 41.93 acres of garden, policies and woods.
The agricultural land and woodland is available in 4 lots.
The organic fields at Letterfourie are classified as Class 3(2) by the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research. As such they are capable of producing good yields of cereals. Latterly the land has been run on an organic basis with grass for the flock of Soay sheep. Cropping has in the past been let on a seasonal basis to an organic farmer, including for potatoes and carrots. The land rises in height from 90 m to 195 m (295'-620') above sea level. Being close to the coast this part of Scotland is renowned for its productive farmland due to the mild coastal climate.
Letterfourie Estate has policy woods and commercial plantings. Providing amenity, shelter and privacy these facilitate shooting currently let on an annual basis. Many of the woods were planted in the 1960s and include Sitka and Norway Spruce, Douglas Fir and areas of aspen.
Within the woods is Craighead Well, which might supply the nearby house site, a mineral well and a former ice house.
