Knightland Wood - SOLD, Aberdeenshire - Nearly 3.75 acres, £29,000

Knightland Wood - SOLD
Knightland Wood - SOLD
Aberdeenshire

A mature but well thinned pine woodland, with a fine deciduous understory close to the picturesque town of Huntley.

Knightland wood is set in the quiet and peaceful countryside of north Aberdeenshire, ten minutes drive from Huntley. The wood has been carefully thinned to preserve and promote the best specimen pine trees, with plenty of light now getting through to the forest floor. This has created great diversity within the woods with a flourishing understory of ash and rowan, interspersed with the odd beech and oak.

There are no set paths or trails as the terrain is open and easy to walk through with varying degrees of overhead canopy. Three rustic benches have been created in one of the many slightly more open areas, which would also be suitable as timber stacking areas or tent areas. The bird life is abundant, with a buzzards' nest high up in the canopy and in use from around early June as well as the many common smaller birds or even the shy jay.

The nearby town of Huntley was formerly known as Strathbogie but is perhaps best known for being the home of the Gordon Highlanders regiment. The Deveron and Bogie rivers are close by and provide great fishing for salmon and trout. Closer to Huntley is the start of Scotland's longest horse ride trail, Highland Horseback, running an amazing 200 miles to the west coast.

Surrounding Area

Exploring the surrounding area is a well rewarding experience, with the beautiful towns of Banchory, Ballater and Braemar to the south and the stunning countryside of Deeside to the Northwest. The wildness area of the Cairngorm National Park is conveniently close by, as are the many small and pretty fishing villages 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.
