As we are sure you will be aware, the impact of the Covid-19 Coronavirus continues to accelerate and affect many people’s lives in every aspect including the industries and workplaces they are part of.  We have been closely monitoring the guidance given by both the Government and the Legal Services Governing bodies about how and what work we can continue during this time to ensure we keep staff, clients and their families safe and help slow the speed of the virus.

With such uncertain times, the third party services and other industries we rely on to progress the work we do for clients are having to take unprecedented measures (such as the recent temporary closure of the Land Register of Scotland for Applications, and direct guidance from The Law Society of Scotland that conveyancing and transactional work should be ‘paused’) to ensure their staff are safe also.  Much of what we do cannot be done without these third party services being operational. 

The Governments have not categorised workers in our field to be ‘key workers’ who can continue to travel to work and therefore in these circumstances of national emergency, we feel that we are left with no other option but to close our office premises with immediate effect until further notice or until the restrictions placed on us by our Government are lifted. This action has been taken in the interests of public health and to ensure we are not putting our staff at risk.

We have been working remotely as much as possible to date to attend to client business but there is only so much that can be done from home without our main office being operational.  We also need staff in the office to operate. As we cannot have staff in the office, we cannot have staff working from home either. Therefore we are extremely limited in what we can do for you at present.

At this time, we would ask our clients and third parties to communicate by email to . If your matter is urgent, please call 01557 330 692, However, there are currently only two of us (Ian Rodger and Ross Ireland) to deal with everything. We may not be able to respond quickly. We will try to help if we can, but are very limited in our capacity to do so at present.

We will of course continue to closely monitor the Scottish and UK Governments advice and await the release of any further information or details that will impact on the welfare of our employees, clients and our business.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we all try to adjust and allow our country to ensure the safety of its people during these unprecedented times.  We hope that we will be able our doors again soon to continue servicing the needs of our clients and community.

Stay well and stay safe.


Your Williamson and Henry Team

The Burgh Parks field lies on the south-west of Castramont Road at the part of  the road known as “Memory Lane”. A plan is included in these Particulars to show the layout of the plots and this gives a good indication of the comparative size of each plot. At the time of preparation of these sales details, the boundaries between the plots are about to be marked by pegs, and therefore a site visit will allow interested parties to see the extent of each plot. The guide prices and approximate areas of the plots are as follows:

Plot 1 – £75,000     0.18 acres
Plot 2 – SOLD
Plot 3 – SOLD
Plot 4 – SOLD
Plot 5 – £120,000    0.33 acres
Plot 6 – SOLD

Memory Lane is a very quiet road, with only farm traffic and occasional traffic to the cemetery, apart from that serving the few houses on the road. Opposite Burgh Parks are some former Local Authority houses and it is understood that all of these except one are now in private ownership.

The seller also owns Galloway Lodge Preserves, who make pickles, preserves and similar products in the two buildings adjacent to Plots 1 and 2. The third building lying behind (ie to the north-west of) these other two buildings is currently used for storage only. The plots will have the benefit of a title condition in respect of the Galloway Lodge buildings to the effect that if the buildings ever require to be replaced, they will not be replaced with buildings greater than one storey in height.

Gatehouse of Fleet is an active community and benefits from many local amenities, such as a primary school, shops, several good hotels, a library and Health Centre. There are active sports clubs (for example snooker, bowling and golf) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including sailing, fishing, golf, cycling and hill walking. Within the wider area, there are many beautiful sandy beaches and rocky coves within easy reach, and equally dramatic inland scenery, with magnificent hills, glens, and lochs.

There is access to each plot directly from Memory Lane.  The seller will undertake the widening of Memory Lane and the construction of
a pavement on the south-west side of Memory Lane in accordance with the terms of the Planning Permission.

Water, gas, electricity and telephone are available, and each purchaser will require to arrange connection to the services running along the frontage of the plots.

A connection to mains drainage will be available to the sewerage pipe running along Memory Lane. Plots 3 to 6 will require a holding tank situated lower than the house with a duct connection, through which individual private pumping can be laid to connect to the foul sewer, whilst Plots 1 and 2 will not require pumping, but instead will be provided with foul sewer disconnecting manholes at their respective plot boundaries. All six plots will require to have soakaways within their curtilage for disposing of surface water.

The sellers are not imposing any restrictions on the positioning or design of the houses to be constructed on the various plots. Therefore, provided purchasers can obtain Planning Permission for the design they choose, they may build to
whatever design they like.

A Deed of Conditions is in the course of preparation defining the various title conditions between the six plots. This will primarily be to ensure compliance with the planning requirements.

In respect of plots 4, 5 and 6, the seller also owns the land between the plots and the River Fleet. The seller may be prepared to sell additional ground in this area, if desired, or alternatively, the seller may agree to a title condition restricting the height of trees in this area, or such other requirements as purchasers may have, to allow the views enjoyed from the plots to be preserved.
