The foresaid Farms and Crofts consist of a very considerable proportion of Infield Land; the Outfield is also of a favourable soil; and from their vicinity to the Lime Quarry of Strichen, and to the populous Village of Mormond, have every advantage, both of improvement, and a good and ready market for the prpoduce of the farm - .  Those occupying small farms, in the neighbourhood of the said village, may have constant employment and high wages for Horse Work, when the same can be spared from their own possessions.

James Horn, Ground Officer, will show the boundaries.

Application for farther information may be made, and offers given in, to John Anderson, Factor at Strichen.
