For Sale - Fixed Price £39,000

Arya Wood is situated at the heart of a larger woodland known as Finnery Plantation, that was previously felled and has very successfully regenerated, largely through self set seed. The diversity and natural feeling and nature of this regrowth has laid the foundation for a quite special woodland, that creates a welcome haven for birdlife, butterflies, dragonflies and deer. The woodland is at a perfect age for someone who is seeking to get involved in a manageable wood, whether it be for conservation or promoting timber growth.

With the light able to reach the ground, plant life is abundant and rich in variety with a multitude of ferns and mosses adding to the diversity. Though a relatively young woodland, the growth is strong and will provide a good supply of sustainable firewood as it is rich in birch, an excellent firewood. Birch is a pioneer species and is one of the most common tree species in Scotland, especially since the large scale de-forestration of the once abundant oak and pine forests. The uses for birch were once myriad, both as a general building material and as a herbal remedy for rheumatism and gout, amongst others. The sap can be tapped in spring to make birch wine, common still in the Highlands and perhaps a tradition to be nurtured by any budding woodlander.

These woods are perfect for anyone new to woodland management and looking for new adventures.

Surrounding Area

The surrounding area of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs gained much popularity with the publication of Sir Walter Scott's 1810 poem 'The Lady of the Lake'. The poem gives a roll call of Trossachs place names, the lady herself being found on Loch Katrine. Scott followed up with his 1817 historical novel Rob Roy, romanticising the outlaw cattle thief Raibert Ruadh born by Loch Katrine and buried at nearby Balquhidder.

Stirling with its beautiful castle is just a 30 minute drive away with direct links from there across to Edinburgh.
