A young farmer is being sought to take over a 47-acre mixed farm near Wick, Caithness, Scotland.

Bill Hazell, the current farmer, is selling up due to ill-health.

“I’d definitely like to see it go to a younger person – it’s a peaceful way of life [here] and I’ve kept cattle, sheep and pigs over the years,” said Mr Hazell.

The farm has sea views and includes a house, feed store, cattle sheds, silage pit and implement shed. The land is a mix of arable and grassland with some rough grazing.

It is for sale at a guide price of £249,950 including SPS entitlements. (Rural & Equestrian 01553 618 834)
