A high amenity open woodland with semi-natural native broadleaves, open rough grazings and localised wetland habitat areas.
Commercial Sold -
The land comprises an attractive area of mixed rough grazings and open woodland, combining to create a small, but high amenity area suitable for livestock and pony grazing. The trees are a mixture of mainly semi-natural native broadleaves, of differing ages, including aspen, birch and ash and offer the opportunity for woodfuel or woodland habitat management. A small burn and adjoining wetland areas create further diverse habitats for wildlife.
The land totals approximately 3.54 acres (1.43 Ha).
The land is located approximately three miles south of West Linton and approximately ten miles north-west of Peebles, within a predominantly rural area. The A701 public road adjoins the land, but open fields and woodland dominate the surroundings. The land is accessed off the A701 by way of a shared private tarmacadam road, with field gate access onto the land.
West Linton is a popular conservation village which lies approximately eighteen miles from central Edinburgh and retains a small number of shops, hotel/bar and restaurant, golf course, church and primary school. The area benefits from excellent access to Edinburgh.
From Edinburgh, take the A702 south to West Linton and turn left into the village. Continue along the Main Street (B7059) south and out of the village and stay on the B7059 for approximately two miles to the “T” junction with the A701. Turn right onto the A701 and continue through Romanno Bridge and Mountain Cross. The land is approximately a quarter of a mile beyond Mountain Cross. Turn left off the A701 at Scotstoun Lodge onto the Scotstounbank Farm road and continue for approximately 100 yards to the field access gate on the left.
The postcode for satnav purposes is EH46 7DF. It is strongly recommended that you do not rely on a Satnav in this rural location and check on a route map prior to any viewing.
Access is taken off the Scotstounbank Farm road (points A-B-C on the plan), which leads to/from the adjoining A701. Maintenance of the private road is shared with the other adjoining properties.
The A701 is an “Agreed Route” for timber haulage purposes.
