Penmuir Wood, South Aberdeenshire - Over 8 acres, £52,500

Penmuir Wood
Penmuir Wood
South Aberdeenshire

Private and tranquil woodland with good access and scope for outdoor enjoyment.

Description: Penmuir Wood is a delightful west-facing mixed woodland with an immediate getaway feel to it. It is ideal for enjoying the countryside, camping, conserving wildlife, producing logs or small-scale forestry. Fine middle-aged Scots pine, Sitka spruce, Norway spruce and larch conifers dominate most of the wood, the partial thinning of which has facilitated walking and re-growth of birch and other broadleaves throughout. Good drainage and cleared rides have created useful dry, light and private open spaces. Scope exists to enhance the wood further, create trails and extend tracks via the many thinning racks, into the heart of the wood.

Trees

Pitgarvie Woodlands: which Penmuir Wood is part of, are situated in idyllic, historic and very peaceful rural surroundings. The trees are a diverse mixture of species and ages and have been sympathetically managed. Currently mature Scots pine, young spruce and birch are dominant, but there are significant areas of mixed broadleaves including rowan, oak and alder.

Wildlife

Red squirrels, deer, hare with lots of small mammals and birds including woodpecker inhabit the woods. There are grants for encouraging capercaille which occupied the area until recent times.

Features

Penmuir Wood will provide a plentiful supply of firewwod for many years to come.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access: is off the B974, through a single gate, and along a 20m section of an included shared private hard track within the southern boundary, over which the neighbouring Sauchie Wood has a full right of access for all purposes. Penumuir Wood will also have a right of access over the rest of the hard stone track belonging to neighbouring Sauchie Wood as shown in green on the detailed map.

Rights and covenants

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

Special Rights/Wayleaves: a right is reserved for the benefit of the retained land to clean the main open water drain along the eastern and northern boundary of Penmuir Wood.

Activities

There is an abundance of mushrooms and fungi throughout the woods of lady jane providing bounty through late summer and autumn.

Local area and history

Surrounding Area: Nearby are the tourist villages of Edzell, with its hidden "rocks of solitude" walk along the North Esk river, and Fettercairn with its working distillery. Slightly further afield are Glamis Castle and Lunan Bay beach and the fishing town of Montrose. Dundee and Aberdeen are each approximately 35 mins drive.
