Description

Amenity and grazing land with mixed woodland planting and habitat restoration potential

- West Linton

Lot 3 is separate from the plot and paddock (Lots 1 & 2), but connected by the shared, private access track. It totals approximately 6.23 acres (2.52 Ha) and comprises a low-lying area of river “haugh”, along with a short section of the Lyne Water, with tree lined embankment. The upper area comprises a mixture of rough grasses, open woodland and shrubs and could be fenced off to provide a useful area for pony grazing, with the remainder suitable for a small-scale woodland planting and habitat restoration project.

LOCATION

The land is located approximately half a mile south of West Linton village, within a predominantly rural area, with a number of houses close by, but with open fields and woodland dominating the surroundings. The land is accessed off the “C” classified “Bogsbank Road”, which runs south from the village and joins the A701 at Romanno Bridge, approximately two and a half miles to the south.

West Linton is a popular conservation village which lies approximately eighteen miles from central Edinburgh and with a small number of shops, hotel/bar and restaurant, golf course, church and primary school. The village benefits from excellent access to Edinburgh and as such is popular with commuters, however, it retains a real village community within a pleasant rural area. Larger town services are available in Penicuik, approximately eight miles to the north-east, with secondary schooling provided in Peebles, approximately fourteen miles to the south-east.

DIRECTIONS

From West Linton village centre (old clock) take the Main Street (B7059) south. Once past St Andrews Church and “Olde Toll Tea House” on your right, turn right onto Bogsbank Road. Continue on Bogsbank Road out of the village for approximately half a mile. The paddock (Lot 2) adjoins Bogsbank Road on the left after the bridge over West Water, with the access to Lots 1 & 3 approximately one hundred meters further up, on the left.

The postcode for satnav purposes is EH46 7BS. 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.
