New to market is a 260-acre plot of land at Dalchully that demonstrates the flexibility of marginal land with a variety of options, and broad appeal to various sectors.
Just under 3 hours from Edinburgh and 50 miles from Inverness, this diverse block of land at Dalchully, Laggan, sits on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park. Totalling 108 acres of native woodland, 123 acres rough grazing, 30 acres of permanent pasture with access to water, it will be of interest to both corporate and private buyers.
Will Dalrymple, Associate at Davidson & Robertson said “The plot will appeal to those looking for a small farming enterprise, but equally, there is potential for some commercial forestry with bare land suitable for planting – It already has a transport network and an agreed route in place, and once planted, would also enable trading in carbon. In terms of conservation and restoration, there are 70-80acres that could be put under peatland restoration scheme. Socio- environmental impact is something that corporate investors are keen to look at.
“Davidson & Robertson has a number of instructions to buy land for corporate and private businesses looking for investment opportunities – be that existing forestry or looking to buy large scale portfolios for tree planting and sequestration of carbon. They are also looking at the environmental and social benefits that can come out of land ownership and we work closely with our Forestry team to advise clients.
“Outdoor recreational businesses will appreciate its location. Situated near Laggan (Monarch of the Glen was filmed around here), it is perfect for those looking for sporting or recreational opportunities. The land comes with fishing and sporting rights with trout fishing on the upper reaches of the River Spey and has a good population of Red, Roe and Sika deer. But it could equally be developed for camping and mountain biking and is a great location for a weekend escape in a Shepherds’ Hut or log cabin or exploring planning to build a property.”
