Darach Wood - SOLD, Highland - Just under 5 ¼ acres, £39,000

Darach Wood - SOLD

Darach Wood is a flourishing woodland that has been expertly thinned and enjoys a verdant and thriving understory, thick with delicious blaeberries and home to animals small and large. Being surrounded by greater forestry, Darach Wood is frequented by deer and birdlife abounds, while at the other end of the scale, the Scottish wood ant also has its home here, with trails of industrious ants marching off here and there to important business.

The wider Baddengorm forest is home to a very important cappercaille population; this particular species is endangered and the RSPB appreciates owners who are prepared to work on establishing best practice regarding the protection of habitat to help sustain this enigmatic species.

The woods are dry, open and very easy to traverse, though there is plenty of scope for additional planting of native deciduous trees to increase diversity. The Scots pine is productive and reaching a good height. It will provide plenty of firewood or timber for carpentry projects.

A bench has been installed next to a gnarly veteran pine providing the perfect excuse to stop and sit awhile.

These woodlands are very popular for understandable reasons.

Access: There is a full right of access over the shared private woodland track as shown in green on the detailed map, with maintenance according to use.

Sporting Rights: These are owned and included with the land.

Surrounding area: Darach Wood is part of Baddengorm Wood and is situated close to the attractive highland village of Carrbridge in the Cairngorm National Park, which is well known for its mountain ranges, outdoor pursuits and diverse native wildlife. Ancient Caledonian Pine Woodland sites are nearby to the north and to the south at the popular Rothiemurchus estate. Aviemore, the Spey and Speyside way are all within 10 miles. The city of Inverness is about 30 minutes to the north.

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.
