SOLD: Druman Wood £49,000 Freehold


This is a lovely regenerating woodland with a diverse mixture of flora and fauna. The land is relatively flat; easy to traverse and wind your way through and explore. The track side is more open with younger vigorous growth, with more mature trees deeper into the back of the woodland; space to lose oneself in.

Throughout Druman Wood the wonderful diversity stands out, whether on the forest floor, a good sign of a healthy vibrant woodland, or higher up in the protective, bigger trees. As always it is the smaller things that are sometimes the most interesting, whether it is wildflowers, fungi or mosses. A plethora of small insects and mammals make their homes within the woods and it is only with time spent observing that these delights will show themselves.

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 diverse mixture of old and young trees in this regenerating woodland, with a couple of lovely mature and characterful Scots pine on the northern boundary. Plenty of scope too for additional planting in the main body of the wood, benefitting from the shelter of the surrounding trees.


These woods are perfect for setting up wildlife cameras to see what lives and moves about the woods when people are not present.


A real asset to the woodland is the small but lovely stream that runs the length of the woodland boundary; it will prove to be a magnet for large and small mammals.

The access tracks are due to be attended to when the weather and ground conditions are appropriate.

Rights and covenants

All sporting rights are included in the sale.


The location lends itself as a holiday destination and will provide the perfect spot for summer camps or as a place to park a campervan.

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.
