Randolph Wood - SOLD, Highlands - Almost 2¾ acres, £19,000

Randolph Wood - SOLD

Description: Randolph Wood is located in a wonderful tranquil highland setting. The streams that run inside Randolph Wood's western and northern boundaries flow on down to the Findhorn River.

The regeneration of the woodland and wildlife habitats after the previous clear felling is apparent in places, with young birch and some rowan, willow, alder, spruce, pine and larch mixing with gorse, ferns, broom, heather and some large brash piles. There are also some older remnant trees mainly along the west boundary. Previously dormant seed banks including of ancient oak, ash and Scots pine may well stir and emerge over time.

The land has some interesting topography with a wetland gully to the south and steeper valley side to the north and flatter land or more gentle undulations in between. In the middle of Randolph Wood there is scope for creating a splayed entrance off the public road and a track through to a secluded clearing towards the west boundary (as shown on the detailed map and on the ground).

The wood has a long eastern frontage onto a quiet public road. The sunny open aspects to the west and south over surrounding fields can be enjoyed at leisure from most areas of the wood.

Access: to Randolph Wood is excellent and directly off the B9007 public road either directly off the road (located as shown by the ride stop on the detailed map and ground) or off the shared private track along the southern boundary. A neighbouring farm and wood also have a right of vehicular access over this shared track. Maintenance is according to use.

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

Wayleaves: The neighbouring farm has a right to water cattle at the watering point shown on the map, and to a supply of water from the water pipe (shown as the water wayleave on the map).

Surrounding Area: Randolph Wood lies in the lower Findhorn River Valley which is somewhat renowned for salmon fishing, canoeing and the spectacular gorge through which the river runs. Randolph's Leap is a popular local geological spot on the river and the Dava Way trail passing nearby is great for walkers or cyclists exploring the wider area. Outside the river valley, the land is a mosaic of farms, forests, heath moorland and lochs providing a haven for indigenous wildlife including rare raptors, pine marten, red squirrel, red deer and Scottish crossbill. The Findhorn Valley in general (also known as the 'Valley of the Raptors') and surrounding areas, including the Cairngorms National Park and Moray Firth, are indeed a wildlife watcher's paradise. The City of Inverness, Aviemore resort and the Spey Valley are all within 30-45 minutes' drive.

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.
