Farms & Crofts in Maryculter


To be let, and entered to at Martinmas or Whitsunday next, the following Farms and Crofts on the estate of Maryculter, in the county of Kincardine, viz.

BOGFON, lately possessed by Robert Thomson.
MUIRSKIE, possessed by William Malcolm.
CROFT of BOGFON, adjoining ditto.
BURNSIDE, lately possessed by Widow Tait.
Part of EASTSIDE, possessed by John Barclay and Widow Strachan; And
CROFT of WEETSHAW, possessed by David Smith.
The above Farms and Crofts, from their local advantages, being only distant 8 or 9 miles from Aberdeen and Stonehaven, are worthy the attention of industrious tenants of skill and capital, to whom every encouragement will be given.  The extent of some of them is very considerable; and they principally consist of a strong rich soil, highly improvable.

They will be let at Maryculter House, upon Saturday the 16th of October next; and in the meantime, application may be made fur further particulars, and offers given in, to Mr Hay at Fyvie, factor on the estate, or to Charles Chalmers, advocate in Aberdeen; and Archibald Abernethy, at Burnside, will point out the grounds and boundaries.
