Depends on your budget, there are a couple on the market in Aberdeenshire, but they're not cheap!  Have a look at Aberdeen & Northern Marts website:

https://www.anestates.co.uk/property-search.cfm

This isn't a bad area to be located, there's an abattoir in Inverurie that does cattle and it used to be an area that produced a lot of milk 20 odd years ago before they all sold out.

"Mackies" dairy is still based in the area if you want to Google that.

You could also try contacting some of the "Estates" in the area to see if they'd rent - many rent houses, not so sure about land rental though.

Scotland is officially TB Free - so you'll probably need to test everything and cull as necessary before moving stock, but it does mean you don't have the annual test to contend with.  We aren't allowed to sell unpasteurised milk though - just in case that's part of your plan.

I am very tempted by scotland tbh. Nah we don't sell unpasturised, everything is pasturised

If there's anything you're interested in and need help with in relation to local knowledge etc don't be afraid to drop a message through and I'll do my best to help.
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

We have had a couple of leads, but nothing concrete yet. Still looking :)

What's your budget and what sort of acreage are you after?  Are there any other specifications in relation to ground type/number of bedrooms/barns etc?  It may help us find something for you if we know what you're looking for.
ideally under a million. Would preferably rent instead of buy tbh. Acerage, anything between 60 and 150. The buildings need to be decent for housing animals and such :)

You need to look at the properties that are POA then.  Those are the ones no-one else can afford!  :roflanim:
