Crovie farm lease

To Let, for such a number of years as may be agreed on,

THE Farm of CROVIE, in the parish of Gamrie, containing about 146 acres; the soil is excellent and early.  It is only about a mile from the sea-port of Gardenstown, and eight from Banff.  There is an excellent Steading of Houses on the Farm; and the Dwellling House would accommodate a genteel family; to be given over on a dead inventory.  It possesses many local advantages, having plenty of sea ware, moss, manure, shell sand, and fisher's dung, within a rig-length of the Farm. - The Farm, and roads upon it, have been greatly improved of late, and is in excellent order, seldom to be met with to an entering tenant.

The incoming tenant may, if he chuses, get the hole Crop and Stocking, as also the Household Furniture, at a fair valuation, and the price to remain in his hands for some years.

James George, the present tenant, will shew the Farm; and offers may be made to him, or Thomas Burnett, Esq. Advocate, Aberdeen, factor on the Estate; and entry may be had at Martinmas or Whitsunday next.
