    probably an arm and a leg!

  • Not many farmers are going to want to sell you an acre of land, sorting it all out is a real pain in the backside, and those that are willing will want to make it worth their while.

    Good quality land's worth up to £15,000 to £20,000 an acre but, that's usually large fields.

    You'll be lucky to get it for anything less than £40,000 and that'll probably include a no-building clause.

    If you can find a good bit for sale - anywhere from £3-5k per acre for pasture (availability of running water for the higher rate). If it has road frontage or is very near an urban conurbation £4-6k per acre. With services and road frontage... very, very, very rarely available in the borders - up to £12k????

    Your first born son.

    Seriously, you can't hope to buy land in Scotland. No one sells, land is inheirited to avoid the Queen from buying anymore of it.
