Holl Wood, Fife - Over 6 acres, £49,000

Holl Wood

Holl Wood takes its name from Holl Burn, a fast running stream that flows past the main entrance of the wood and eventually feeds into the nearby Holl reservoir.

This young conifer woodland has shown vigorous growth and will provide ample woodfuel for many years to come.

There is a fine open area already established suitable for camping or the siting of a woodland shelter, and this will provide a good base camp for the future work of managing the woods. The southerly views are spectacular and, with good reason, the woods are part of the Lomond Hills regional park.

This woodland will provide an oasis of peace and tranquility for its owner.

Surrounding Area:

The surrounding woodland is called Bridle Bank and looks out north, across to the distant Lomond Hills, or the 'Paps of Fife' as they are commonly known. This hilly area will entertain the mountain biker and walker alike. The surrounding area, east of Loch Leven, is easily within reach of Edinburgh to the south and Dundee to the north. The Lomond Hills have a rich and varied history. From the Iron Age are the remains of several hill forts, which can be found around the summits of both East and West Lomond as well as at Maiden Castle, a grassy knoll that lies between the two.

Bridle Bank sits next to Holl reservoir, one of several in the area and it is from here one can take an alternative route up Bishop Hill. The route starts from the car park at Holl Reservoir and winds its way up through farmland and forestry plantings to emerge on the grassy open hilltop. This is a perfect place for a leisurely picnic while enjoying the wonderful views of Loch Leven with its islands and castle far below. Holl Meadow is one of Fife’s finest. More than 100 kinds of plant grow in the grassland beside the reservoir and is a short walk from Bridle Bank.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

There is a growing interest in hut, bothy and temporary shelter building, especially in Scotland; for those interested in erecting a hut or shelter, here is some interesting and very helpful guidance from Reforesting Scotland’s Thousand Hut Campaign. Your Local Planning Authority should also be consulted.
