The whole of these Possessions are newly marched and arranged, but this arrangement may be altered to suit Candidates.

The Farms are well calculated for Turnip Husbandry, and are of early excellent soil – in proof of which, it may be mentioned that the Crops of the last two years were in general harvested in good condition, and free of damage; they are beautifully situated along the banks of the river, in a fertile district of country, in all respects well accommodated; they are susceptible of easy improvement, having lime at a reasonable distance – near markets, and have good access to the turnpike roads leading to the neighbouring sea-port towns of Banff, Macduf, and Portsoy. – Tenants of capital and enterprise will meet with every encouragement; and to suit persons of this description, the marches can be easily so arranged, by uniting adjoining Possessions, as to form sundry compact and desirable Farms of 300 or 250 Acres each.

The Farms and boundaries will be pointed out, on Mondays and Fridays, by John Brown, overseer at Netherdale; and offers in writing will be received by the Proprietor, at Netherdale House, until the time of Set, for which an early day will soon be fixed and advertised.
