    Did anyone bid for Troston tender nr Moniaive?.....

    Hi All

    Wondered if anyone tendered for the 1,100 acre Troston Estate nr Moniaive?.... (Dumfries/Galloway).

    We reckon it must have gone for over 6 per acre.....

    Past cull records were approx 20 Roe a year, Reds are starting to come in, it included a ski type chalet with water & electrics - crazy price for the acreage & cull potential....

    yes we put a bid in for it, don't know who got it ,but it must have been silly money, nice ground but certainly not worth more than 2.50/ 3.00 an acre at best.
    I believe the holiday cottage/chalet was not included in the lease, but could be used by separate negoition, (extra cash).
    The people at the land agency insisted that it went to the highest bidder,regardless of anything else, so good reputations and years of doing the job correctly count for nothing these days.
    As most of you will be aware,cash appears to be king these days.
