This is a most attractive parcel of land and comprises mainly of improved pasture land/improved hill offering sound grazing and some potential for mowing. The majority of the land, except field no. 4868, has been ploughed and reseeded within the last 15 years. Most of the enclosures are hedged and the land benefits from a number of small coppices of trees offering shady places for livestock to shelter. There are sheep handling pens in field no. 9413 and a stoned area being a great benefit for livestock handling. The north-west boundary is along the Bearded Lake, set in a picturesque hollow at the highest point of the holding. Running east of the lake is a small valley named ''Carrig ateb' with a stone landmark in the centre inscribed ''To Echo'. The undulating pasture allows the ground to remain relatively dry which ensures it can be accessed and used to its full potential throughout the year. There is good access to the land via a right of way over a well maintained stone road. Further to this a stone track leads to the sheep pens that are central to the holding. The land is contained within the following schedule:
