Mains of Williamston


ON Saturday the 30th of October, at 11 o'clock, forenoon, there will be Let, at Pitmachie, the Farm of MAINS of WILLIAMSTON, lately occupied by JOHN ROGER, with the adjoining possession lately occupied by Peter Wood, for a lease of 19 years from Martinmas first.  These Farms together consist of about 165 Scots acres, mostly arable, of excellent soil, well adapted for Turnip husbandry, and under proper cultivation capable of bearing every species of grain crop.  The distance from Aberdeen is 26 miles, from Inverury, where lime and colas may be always had by the Canal, 11 miles, and from Huntly 9 miles, and the turnpike road passes through the Farm.  On the premises there is a substantial steading, all covered with slate, and the Barn is adapted for a Threshing machine, with the benefit of water.

Offers in writing will, in the mean time, be received by Andrew Jopp, Advocate in Aberdeen, and the Rev. Mr Ellis, at Culsamond, will cause the boundaries of the Farm to be pointed out to enquirers.
