Winnie Wood, Fife - Over 4 acres, £35,000

Winnie Wood

Winnie Wood sits at the back of the wider woodland and is one of the more diverse woodlands within Balmule. The entrance sits on a wide plateau which then drops down a gentle slope to another wider flatter area, bounded by a good running burn that leads into the nearby fishery.

There is a vibrant mix of tree and hedgerow species throughout the woods that would challenge young and old in a game of tree identification! This mix of trees will provide an abundance of food in season time, for a multitude of birds and small mammals.

The wood is reaching an age where sustainable thinning can take place to provide good quality hardwood firewood for any future owner. There are various locations within the wood that would be perfect for the siting of a woodland shelter, with the added bonus of having a source of water too.

With the leaves now out after the long winter and the blush of spring is fully developed, the woodland is alive with birdsong making it a really attractive place to meander through.

Surrounding area:

Winnie Wood is located within 15 minutes from Dunfermline, which up until the 17th Century was the royal capital of Scotland and centrally located for Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling. Fife, bounded to the north by the Firth of Tay, and to the south by the Firth of Forth, is a natural peninsula where political boundaries have changed little over the ages. Legend has it that the Pictish realm was divided into seven sub-kingdoms or provinces, one of which went on to become Fife.

To the north beyond the hill and woods is Commerce Park, an old WW2 supply depot for the naval bases at Rosyth, now converted mainly for use by local business and also home to Scotland's Vintage Bus Museum.

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.

  • Price: £35,000 Freehold
  • Location: Bowershall, Dunfermline, Fife
  • Size: Over 4 acres for sale
