Woodcockdale Farm is a versatile mixed farming unit situated within a short distance of Linlithgow and about 21 miles west of Edinburgh city centre. 

The farm has been in the same hands since 1961 and, over the years, has expanded through the acquisition of several neighbouring and additional outlying areas of land at Williamscraig, Easter Carribber, Castlehill and Manuel Mill. 

The farming system at Woodcockdale was historically centred on a mixed dairy and arable system with cereals and temporary grass grown as part of the rotation, with some of the grain and all of the straw used for home consumption. 

In 2008, there was a change in the farming policy and the dairy enterprise was replaced with a predominately grassland-based cropping system to accommodate the larger beef enterprise and the addition of a closed Lleyn cross sheep flock.

For sale as a whole or in separate lots 

The farmland at Woodcockdale comprises a mix of productive arable, silage and pasture ground, along with several areas of grazing land and a mix of amenity woodland areas located throughout the holding, providing shelter and amenity. 

The farmland extends to approximately 261.27 ha in total, with the majority of the arable and pasture ground largely classified by the James Hutton Institute as grade 3.1 and 4.1/4.2 with some smaller areas of grade 5 and 6 forming a mix of grazing ground. 

Duncan Barrie, partner handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “Woodcockdale Farm presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a mixed farming unit located in a highly accessible location within a sought after area of West Lothian.  

“The farm is split by the main roads and therefore is for sale as a whole or in six separate lots, offering a variety of options for interested parties to either buy the farm in its entirety, or purchase the desired portion to their needs.”

Well served by a wide variety of agricultural contractors 

The property at Woodcockdale includes a modern eight-bedroom farmhouse situated to the south of the farmstead and providing spacious accommodation over two floors.  

The farm also benefits from a range of modern and traditional farm buildings that are situated in a group and are surrounded by a productive block of farmland and amenity woodland which bounds the southern bank of the River Avon. 

The Galbraith agent added that the area of West Lothian is well served by a wide variety of agricultural contractors, merchants, and suppliers.  

Regular livestock sales are held at UA Stirling Agricultural Centre and Lanark, providing an outlet for high-quality livestock, which the surrounding area is renowned for producing.
