Attin Wood is a delightful young woodland of an age where the trees are still a manageable size. The undergrowth is thick with prolific honeysuckle and an array of flowers, some wild and others such as crocosmia, jacob's ladder, and buddleja 'the butterfly bush", commonly found in a garden.
This diversity is the cornerstone of a healthy woodland infrastructure wherby flora and fauna thrive, whilst allowing the woodland owner to also make their mark.
There is great scope within this woodland to be able to harvest a sustainable supply of firewood for domestic needs as well as providing a safe environment for children to play, explore and create. These woods are in a wonderful location and early viewing is recommended.
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.
Attin wood is a classic example of a self seeded, naturally regenerated woodland, predominated by the pioneer species birch, along with willow, rowan and assorted pine.
The diversity of this woodland is what makes it so special, providing the perfect ingredients for small mammals and birds to thrive. There are animal trails throughout the woods that would be the perfect spot for setting up wildlife cameras.
A wooden bench has been placed just in from the main entrance; the perfect spot to sit a while and set up a campfire.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Access is directly off the B9061 up a strong short track. The entrance to the wood has a useful area of hardstanding for vehicle turning or use as a timber stacking area.
Rights and covenants
Sporting rights: these are owned and included with the land.
The natural regeneration and regrowth of this woodland has been phenomenal, creating the closest we get to jungle in this country. A network of paths have been cut providing the perfect backdrop for some serious den building for young and not quite so young.
Local area and history
The Moray coast is a hidden gem of Scotland that has so far remained amongst the roads less travelled. From quaint fishing villages such as Portsoy and Findochty to hidden bays dotted along the 50 mile coastal trail this is a fantastic place to have a woodland base.
There are a number of castles to explore such as the ruined Duffus Castle near Dufftown, to the magical Findlater Castle set looking out to sea and a reminder of time gone by, to the more formal gardens of the 'pearl of the north', Ballindalloch Castle.
Further up the coast is Elgin, Findhorn, Nairn and Inverness, with great train and plane links, as well as being the closest you will get to 'urban' for quite some distance.
Boundaries are marked out by purple painted post tops.
