Magus Wood - SOLD, Roxburghshire - Just over 4 acres., £45,000

Magus Wood - SOLD

Planted 16 years ago on fertile soil, the mixed trees of Magus Wood have quickly become a haven for local wildlife. Even during a brief visit, the abundance of small birds is greatly apparent (including some very curious wrens eyeing you from the hawthorns). When staying for longer periods of time it is likely that all manner of other animals such as roe deer and the common lizard will be spotted too. Recently a doe with two kids was seen bounding across the river and a neighbouring field: simply delightful!

Magus Wood has an enormous amount of charm, including even the good access track between the highway and the woodland entrance, that takes you over sheep fields where lambs play in spring and early summer.

The woodland has the major attraction of very pretty south facing river frontage and this is rare and immensely sought after. The river is easily accessed by wandering down the bank and would make a popular spot for fishing (indeed "magus" is a type of fishing fly). The river also lends itself to more leisurely pursuits such as relaxing on the bench with a drink or a picnic, or going for a paddle on a warm afternoon.

Whilst conservationists and anglers alike are sure to love Magus Wood, it also appeals to those who simply want to get away from it all. It would also be the ideal woodland for those that would feel overwhelmed by the prospect of purchasing a larger woodland and with it being easily accessible from all of southern Scotland and northern England, it makes the ideal retreat.

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: £45,000 Freehold

Magus Wood is well connected via the scenic A7 and is around 35 miles north of Carlisle, 15 miles north of Langholm and 10 miles south of Hawick.

To get to the woodland simply drive along the A7 to the postcode of TD9 0LG near the small village of Teviothead.

At the sign to Falnash near the Armstrong Johnnie Gallery cross the River Teviot using the temporary bridge and take an immediate right once over the bridge.

Follow the track to just before the closed farm gate with cattlegrid and park safely at the small junction on the left.

Proceed on foot through the farm gate (remembering to close it after you) and walk along the track beside the river. Continue along this track through an open gateway up to the locked woodland gate.

(Dog owners will note that a dog friendly stile has been provided at the entrance to the woodlands. All dogs should be on a lead when walking through the sheep fields.)

Climb carefully over the stile and you will find the entrance to Magus Wood a short way on your right.

A key to the locked gate will be provided upon purchase of the woodland and a right of way will allow you to drive all the way to your woodland.


The boundary of Magus Wood is clearly marked by posts topped in orange paint along the southern, western and northern sides of the woodland. The eastern boundary is the centre line of the River Teviot.
