Property features

• Sporting in hand
• Approaching maturity
• Approx 836.95 acres (338.71ha)

Corrachaive is located on the Cowal peninsular just to the North West of Dunoon. The forest lies just to the south of Loch Tarsan and rises up the southern slope of Cruach Neuran at 607m. Dunoon and its car ferry to the mainland is just 8 miles to the south-east. There is also access via the public road network to the north if required.

Corrachaive was planted with mainly Sitka spruce in 1986 by the current owner. This has proven to be productive with crops exceeding YC 20 on the fertile and well drained lower slopes. The vast majority of the crops are now approaching maturity and will provide a large timber and tax efficient cash reserve for future owners.

This stunning and exciting piece of land occupies its own private offshoot of the main valley. The trees have been planted sensitively throughout the valley and large areas of open space have been left above the trees to assist with landscaping and to ensure the majority of the planted trees are able to perform well. There are also older areas of broadleaved trees associated with the numerous water courses that cross the forest.

The northern third of the property is bisected by a hydro-electric water supply aqueduct. The woodland owner is able to cross this with the permission of the aqueduct owner. Access to the forest is easy along a shared farm road linking with the forest's long internal access track. This is in good condition and with some upgrading will be ready for harvesting planned over the next few years. Timber can be hauled along the B836 to Sandbank Pier (6 miles) from where it can be despatched by sea to various timber processors located on the west coast and across Ireland.

There is also access via the public road network for timber haulage north through Glenbranter to Strachur and across the A82 to timber markets located in Fort William and Central Scotland.

A breakdown of area and species can be found growing within the forest can be found in the attached particulars.

The sporting rights are owned and included with vacant possession and provide some challenging Red and Roe deer stalking along the open rides and the open hill that extends to approximately 151.85 hectares/375.22 acres above the treeline. Mineral rights are owned and included in the sale.

There are no known fencing liabilities.
