SOLD: Abergairn Wood £59,000 Freehold


This is a wonderful woodland, thick with birch, alder and holly amongst many others. The land is level and though there are some tracks cut through, it is dense with vegetation and further paths could be created while explorers the hidden qualities of this diverse woodland.

A dry stone boundary wall stretches the length of the wood and on the other side of this wall is a handy stream with a good flow of water: an attractive and valuable asset in any woodland.

The woods are very private and blessed with the sound of silence, allowing the woodland owner time and space to enjoy nature at its best, unsullied by human activity. There is a great deal of biodiversity within these woods, with many of the hallmarks of ancient woodland present, even though the wood is currently in a regenerative cycle. The location will make these woods extremely sought after and early viewing is reccommended.

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.


A lovely mixed species woodland with a high number of holly and alder specimens. Holly is a native species that provides good cover for nesting birds with the berries being a vital source of food for birds and small mammals such as wood mice.

Local area and history

Burgie Woods are close to Forres which is a town and former royal burgh in the north of Scotland on the Moray coast, approximately 25 miles (40 km) northeast of Inverness and 12 miles (19 km) west of Elgin. There are many geographical and historical attractions nearby such as the River Findhorn, and there are also classical, historical artifacts and monuments within the town itself, such as Forres Tolbooth and Nelson's Tower. Brodie Castle, the home of the Brodie Clan, lies to the west of the town, close to the A96.

Findhorn Bay witnessed a brief episode in the 1745 Jacobite rising. In March 1746 the French brigantine Le Bien Trouvé entered the tidal waters with dispatches for Bonnie Prince Charlie but her departure, with the Prince's aide-de-camp on board, was delayed by the arrival of two British men-o'-war.
