Burnie Oak Wood - SOLD, South Ayrshire - Almost 9 acres , £48,000

Burnie Oak Wood - SOLD

Description: Burnie Oak Wood is an ancient semi-natural oak and birch woodland resting on a predominantly gentle slope with good drainage and red, mixed soils. The cascading burn along the southern boundary draws a variety of wildlife, with elm, sycamore and willow trees lining the narrow steep glen along which the water flows. There is easier walking access above this glen amongst the undulating, majestic and previously coppiced oak areas, with rural views over the Stinchar valley apparent from the various openings in the wood.

Private areas, particularly when the trees are in full leaf, for occasional camping can be accessed via paths in the middle and lower areas. Outlines of old tracks and what could be old pack horse trails are also still visible and useable around the wood. Other broadleaves including ash, beech and sycamore co-exist amongst the oaks. Red deer, red squirrels and diverse bird life flourish in the vicinity, and moist grasses, ferns, bluebells, wood anemones and brambleberries seasonally carpet the woodland floor.

Wayleaves: There is an underground telephone line, serving the cottage above Burnie Oak and Daljarrock woodlands, running through the lower part of, and up alongside the internal stone track.

Access: External access is via a hard stone private track leading off the A714 over which there is a shared legal all-purpose vehicular right of access, shown green on the maps. The track skirts around most of Burnie Oak Wood perimeter. Leading off this main track are 2 packed earth internal tracks accessing the central and lower eastern areas.

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

Mineral Rights: These are owned and included with the land except where reserved by statute.

Surrounding Area: Burnie Oak Wood is situated in the heart of the Daljarrock Forest in mixed woodland and rural hillside settings in the pretty River Stinchar valley. There is a great variety of wildlife in the valley, including red squirrel, red deer, roe deer, otters, badgers and reptiles, and birds from blue tits to buzzards, plover to peregrine. Many nearby walks and the tranquil unspoilt environment make the area perfect for nature and general outdoor enthusiasts. A walk up Knockdolian Hill provides panoramic land and sea views. For the more adventurous, the long-distance walking route - The Carrick Way - is close by. The huge Galloway and Carrick Forests can be explored further to the east and an early spring wildlife festival takes place throughout neighbouring Dumfries & Galloway every year. The coastal town of Girvan, and shingle beaches at Woodland and Ballantrae Bay are within 10 miles to the West. Nearby Pinwherry and Barrhill villages have local services whilst Colmonell and Dailly have forestry mills/suppliers too. Ayr, Stranraer and Newton Stewart are within 30 miles.

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.
