Daric Wood, Moray - Nearly 4 ½ acres, £35,000

Daric Wood
Daric Wood
Moray

A young and very diverse woodland, located within easy reach of the beautiful Moray coast.

The name Daric is gaelic in origin and means strong or oak hearted; it is well suited to this young, vibrant woodland. To come from Moray would make you a Moravian and back in the 10th century it encompassed Aberdeenshire and large parts of the Highlands in what was probably a distinct kingdom, commonly known as the Mormaerdom or Kingdom of Moray.

The woodland was previously a clearfell site, that was left to natural succession and has resulted in a wonderful and natural spread of regeneration. It has had very little in the way of human traffic and is proven to be a haven for flora and fauna with an abundance of birdlife nesting within the woodland. To the east against the quiet lane, a band of gorse acts as a convenient screen while to the west the woodland becomes more open and heath like in nature. The gorse though spiny, is an incredibly important early Spring food source for bees and other pollinators, as they seek to replenish food reserves. As with all things it can be hard to put into words the incredible diversity of this woodland and perhaps the easiest solution would be to spend a few hours getting to know it in person.

The entrance to the wood is up a short, shared track, a lockable wooden gate has been installed and in due course and when circumstances allow, the area of hardstanding will be strengthened allowing sufficient space turn a vehicle or to use as a timber stacking area. Walking into the wood from the gate there is a wide open area full with woodruff, a plant sometimes known as ' wild baby's breath'. The latin name is Galium Odoratum and as this name suggests, it is strongly scented and is widely used in its dry form for potpourri or as a flavouring.

New planting can be seen to the periphery of the woodruff, adding another layer of diversity to this young wood made up of oak, beech, hawthorn and hazel.

Surrounding area:

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, that boasts great train and plane links, as well as being the closest you will get to urban for quite some distance.

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.
