Lee Pen Wood, Scottish Borders - About 6⅔ acres, £45,000

Lee Pen Wood

A Scots pine woodland situated on the shoulder of the majestically imposing hillside of Lee Pen. At 380 metres above sea level the woodland offers commanding views over the Innerleithen hills.

Access within the wood is made easy by the well spaced pines. The slopes leading up to a more open level area lend themselves to many projects such as conservation, camping, woodland management and nature watching. A newly made track and turning area make it easy to get a car into the wood.

Wildlife has a well established home in Lee Pen Wood, from the deer that forage through, to the lichens clinging to tree stumps. Intermittent bursts of drumming reveal the whereabouts of the woodpecker, busily seeking out an invertebrate lunch. A glance upwards may reveal its tree-trunk home.

Ownership of this wood would give a worthwhile investment in the future with unbounded possibilities to enjoy the 'here and now'.

Access: Is along the stone track which leads from the main entrance to a ride-stop at the woodland entrance. This track continues through the wood.

Surrounding area: The Tweed Valley in Tweeddale in the Scottish Borders is known the world-over for the dramatic beauty of its landscape. The woodland is set in the upper parts of what was the old Glenormiston Estate, in previous generations variously known as Wormiston, Ormiston, Ormistoun and Ormieston as new owners took over the lands. The quality of the area is demonstrated by the numbers who come to enjoy activities on offer: walkers enjoy the Southern Upland Way just a mile or so to the south; anglers the River Tweed with its salmon fishing flowing in the valley bottom while mountain bikers come to two of the best biking centres in the UK, Innerleithen and Glentress. For a sense of history a quick look at the OS map shows many ancient monuments, hill forts, settlements and cairns. For more recent history, Traquair is claimed to be Scotland's oldest inhabited house whilst the nearby St Ronan's Well is a Victorian spa visited by many.

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