Major leisure opportunity brought to the market in Fife

25 Mar 2020

A substantial land holding in Fife could become a major new tourist destination for Scotland after being put up for sale by Hargreaves Land.

The 930-acre St Ninians site, located near Dunfermline, is designated for leisure, tourism and recreation uses and incorporates a range of woodland and agricultural land. 

Part of the site includes a restored former surface mine which is already home to stunning landforms by world-renowned landscape architect Charles Jencks, which represents the four continents across the globe influenced by their Scottish residents throughout history.

Situated 10 miles from the Forth Bridges at Junction 4 of the M90 and with 80% of Scotland’s population located within 1.5 hours’ drive, Hargreaves Land is eager to talk to interested parties about St. Ninians’ long term potential.

Ryden and Davidson & Robertson have been appointed as joint agents to begin marketing the site and will be implementing a series of events to showcase the opportunity.

Philip Rayson of Hargreaves Land, who is based at the firm’s new Glasgow office, explained: “This really is an incredible opportunity to develop a unique and stunning landscape and create a vibrant future for this site.”

“The site includes two water bodies suitable for a range of leisure uses, and Loch Fitty has previously been operated as an international standard trout fishery”.

Niall Milner of Davidson and Robertson Rural commented: “We’re delighted to be bringing St Ninians to the market in conjunction with Ryden. It truly is a rare opportunity for such a sizeable and well connected leisure site to become available with a clear steer from the local authority on what development will be favourably considered”.

Neil McAllister of Ryden added: “It is a privilege to be appointed by Hargreaves Land to market such a large area of land in Central Scotland which adjoins one of the busiest motorways in the country, the M90 which connects Edinburgh with Perth. The ease of accessibility to the majority of Central Scotland’s population will hopefully allow the purchaser to take advantage of the site’s development potential for leisure and tourism related uses.’
