Firth Wood - SOLD, Dumfries and Galloway - Nearly 3 ¾ acres, £29,000

Firth Wood - SOLD
Firth Wood - SOLD
Dumfries and Galloway

An established and beautiful woodland that has much to offer including mature deciduous trees, spring flowers, lively birdlife and many native mammals and benefits from the bright southerly aspect and very special views across the Solway Firth.

Firth Wood is a bright and beautiful deciduous woodland that sits alongside the picturesque coastal road that runs along the southern coast of Dumfries and Galloway and is easily accessible from further east.

The woodland not only benefits from the sunlight which filters into the woodland due to its southerly aspect, but as a mature woodland it also has very diverse flora and fauna that reflect its age: the woodland floor is especially splendid in spring. The canopy of birch, oak and hazel trees is home to many small birds including wrens, robins and finches. Nuthatches can be seen, and heard, making their way up the trees, and while nquisitive squirrels sit among the lower branches, buzzards circle above the southern edge. The bark of roe deer can be heard at night and they are often seen among the low vegetation by day. A quiet observer may also spy a most special visitor, the pine marten.

The woodland is the perfect retreat from a hectic lifestyle, to come and unwind in: after only a few moments sitting on the convenient wooden bench watching natures' intricate dance, the stress of life quickly fades. A walk into the woodland from the hard standing and ride stop area, along the ancient path, and more of the woodland can be enjoyed until eventually a lovely view emerges across the grazing field and over Wigtown Bay itself.

The very popular Solway coast is a special place to many and it is sure to capture your heart if you allow it. A quiet pathway leads down to the beach from the other side of the main road. Legend has it that this beach has an interesting past: a tunnel from Barholm Castle supposedly allowed the protestant McCullochs (or their friend John Knox) to escape, if in danger from the catholic Browns of Carsluith.

Firth Wood is a beautiful place to relax with the family. It would also provide plentiful high quality firewood or wood for crafts and furniture making.

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.
