Sionn Wood - SOLD, Perthshire - 7, £55,000

Sionn Wood - SOLD

Sionn Wood has commanding views out towards Schiehallion, one of the many iconic Highland mountains and will be sought after by those with a sense of adventure. All of the woods at Dunalastair can be relied upon to be very private and Sionn Wood is no exception.

Access to the woods is very easy for extracting firewood or for larger timber projects and there is a good stand of larch that will be extremely useful for milling into cladding for a self built hut.

One of the focal points of the wood is the stream that meanders through it; not only does this provide fresh water but it also gives great potential for small scale hydro power as well as acting as a magnet for the local wildlife. Regular visitors are deer, red squirrels and the occasional pine marten.

Situated towards the top of the wood is a fine bench, perfectly sited to take in the sweeping vistas to the south, which on a fine day will be entrancing.

Surrounding area

Sionn Wood is part of the old Creag Dhubh Forestry Estate, that is situated just above Dunalastair Water, on the lower south-eastern slopes of corbett Beinn a' Chuallaich. The surrounding area is renowned for its natural highland beauty including the ancient Caledonian Pine woods (Black Woods of Rannoch), series of Lochs (Rannoch and Tummel), cascading rivers (Tummel and Garry) and the classic, conical shaped munro (Schiehallion). Cabar Wood is very close to Dunalastair water that has the reputation for one of the best places in the UK, for wild trout fishing; the nearby village of Kinloch Rannoch is both a draw to tourists and is the base for an outdoor pursuits centre. Slightly further afield is Pitlochry, a small, picturesque tourist town in the geographical centre of Scotland and a handy place to pick up supplies when you are running low, while the beautiful city of Perth is only about 30 minutes drive to the south.

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.
