Tillen Meadow occupies a sheltered location set amidst attractive rolling countryside midway between two famous salmon rivers - the Dee and the Don. Aberdeen is 40 minutes to the east and the Cairngorms National Park is a similar distance to the southwest. Banchory and other Royal Deeside villages are about 20 minutes to the south. The immediate vicinity is a largely undiscovered haven.
The paddock is largely level with a gentle north-easterly aspect, and is sheltered by woodland and field-edge trees on two sides. It has not been grazed for some years. The access is via a well found hard track and there is a good length of hardstanding within for parking.
Tillen lends itself to a variety of uses from equestrian to woodland establishment and the attractive location also means that it presents as a very affordable hideaway. A shepherd’s hut would sit well here.
If It Were Mine
As a forester I’d like to plant a few specimen trees possibly in conjunction with establishing an orchard. A maintained area of meadow for camping is also tempting.
