Lundy Wood £69,000 Freehold


Lundy Wood is predominantly flat land with a gentle incline rising drainage. The access is along an excellent shared track with the quiet public road close by. A varied mix of species abounds, with mature alder flanking the stream that runs down one boundary and a mixture of birch, Scots pine , spruce, holly, rowan and willow throughout.

The area of woodland closest to the unclassified road is very dense and serves as an excellent barrier as it stands; opening up some trails would be time well spent and a straightforward job with hand tools and a willing workforce.

The solid access track is comprised of stone right up to the entrance of Lundy Wood, while the track carries further on into the woodland, leading to an open area of bracken where there is a bench set against the boundary dry stone wall. The stream sits outside of the title on the other side of the drystone wall untill the northern point where the wall veers to the left and the stream becomes the boundary of the wood. There is plenty of scope for creating camping areas or for siting a woodland hut or shelter for weekend trips to the wood.

This is a delightful wood that is well worth exploring as demand is high for this type of woodland, especially with the proximity of a reliable burn.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant

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.


There is a fine mix of different species of tree within Lundy Wood, with birch, rowan, willow and conifer, as well as holly and alder offering plenty of firewood to keep the home fire burning. Opening up clearings within the conifer will add more diversity as well as providing further wood fuel.


Lundy Wood is a real magnet for wildlife; very few people come to these woods leaving the wildlife undisturbed. The stream will attact small mammals and the denseness of the woodland will provide good cover for all manner of creatures. The birdlife is abundant as befits a wood so rich in biodiversity.


Lundy Wood would be a fantastic base for summer holidays whether camping or even siting a shelter or hut.. Access to the stream will make life easier for camping expeditions with plenty of scope for opening up camping areas within the wood.

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.
