Maberry Wood - SOLD, South Ayrshire - About 8 acres, £49,000

Maberry Wood - SOLD
Maberry Wood - SOLD
South Ayrshire

South-facing woodland with expansive views across the valley and hills opposite. An opportunity to nurture and experience the development of a recently established woodland in a peaceful and accessible setting.

Description: Maberry Wood is a maturing conifer woodland planted in 1999, from which sweeping south-westerly views across the Duisk and Luce fells can be enjoyed. Predominantly swift growing spruce with a scattering of larch, together with a fringe planting of oak, rowan, alder, ash, cherry and birch.

The trees lie on a gentle slope with open ground along the western and southern boundaries and also under the small overhead electricity line. A variety of grasses inhabit these open areas together with pillows of red moss. Internal access is provided by a hard grassy track alongside the galloway stone dyke wall which also forms the southern boundary. This is supplemented by grassy rides through the centre and along the perimeter.

This part of South Ayrshire has a wild beauty with diverse wildlife, peace and tranquillity and clean clear air.

The large amount of growing timber could be sustainably harvested as a domestic wood fuel source and this would encourage a greater diversity of trees or flora to flourish in the space created.

An overnight camping stay is an attractive proposition facilitating wild life watching at the prime times of dusk and dawn with the potential for breathtaking and unspoilt sunsets and nightscapes.

Access: is via a shared gate and track up to the south-east corner where it joins the internal access track.

Sporting Rights: These are included with the land.

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

Surrounding Area: Maberry Wood is situated in a landscape of mixed fell and forest hillside between the Duisk and Cree river valleys. Barrhill and Glentrool villages are within a few miles in opposite directions and offer good local rural services including a railway station at Barrhill. The nearby Glentrool Forest Park , which is part of the vast Galloway Forest, offers a variety of walks including climbing The Merrick - South Scotland's highest mountain, a section of the Southern Upland Way and amongst diverse forests and lochs. It is also one of the 7 Stanes mountain biking centres providing some great short and long-distance cycling routes. The towns of Girvan, Stranraer and Newton Stewart lie within 15-25 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.
