Woodlands For Sale Scotland
Pirn Bank Wood, Innerleithen, Scottish Borders. About 5 acres (approx.) of mature mixed hardwoods with extensive river frontage, freehold for £12,000 [#347].
Substantial full-canopy beech, oak and ash overlooking 600 metres of Leithen Water on the north edge of this pretty Borders town.
Pirn Bank Wood occupies the east bank of Leithen Water and backs onto the Iron Age Hill Fort of Pirn Hill.
Mature oak, beech and ash dominate the woodland with expansive open-grown crowns and some very impressive girths. Scattered through this are smatterings of elm, hazel, holly and Scots pine plus a vigorous under-storey of regenerating hardwoods. Bluebells, crocuses and daffodils promise delightful spring colour.
The woodland occupies some moderately steep banks but benefits from several sizeable level glades by the waterside. There is also a more open area of managed grass overlooking this clean-flowing river.
Entry on foot is via a delightful arched stone footbridge on the west side of the wood. This links with an extensive network of paths giving access to all areas including the public road at the southern end which will assist in management operations.
The entire wood is currently managed by the local Community Council under a Management Agreement. This runs until 2017 but can be terminated with six months notice. Further details are available from the agent.
From the centre of Innerleithen drive northeast on High Street (A 72) and then turn left onto Leithen Road (B 709) just after the Bank of Scotland. Continue for a further 400m and park on the street. The entrance to the wood is via a private road on your right signed for Pirn Hill Fort. Walk down this dirt road for 30m and then over the stone bridge into the middle of the wood.
