Glenling Wood lies immediately adjacent to a minor county road near the heart of The Machars peninsula. This largely undiscovered corner of southwest Scotland is a rural landscape of rolling farmland and woods, girded by a varied and interesting coastline. Wigtown (Scotland’s book town) is 6 miles to the northeast. Newton Stewart and the A75 trunk road are a further 12 miles to the north.
The wood is dominated by stands of good form larch on slightly elevated ground, with pockets of Norway spruce between which give a pleasing diversity of colour. The crop is approaching production phase, and harvesting should be straightforward thanks to easily-worked level terrain and immediate road frontage.
The perimeter is fringed with a variety of broadleaves including sycamore, birch and occasional willow, linking with a more extensive area of birch in the southwest corner.
The woodland floor is clean and easy to walk with carpets of larch needles underfoot mingling with soft grasses, ferns and wood sorrel. An old wall to the north and an attractive small burn (stream) to the south combine to create a well-defined property with useful timber reserves.
If It Were Mine
The felling of adjacent woodland has exposed the southern edge and resulted in a few blown stems which I would harvest for woodfuel. Further down the line there is the prospect of harvesting the main conifer crop. A little woodland recreation and camping might also feature.

Directions & Access
- From Wigtown head southwest on the A714 to Bladnoch.
- Cross the river at Bladnoch and then fork right after ¼ mile onto the B7005.
- Continue heading west on this minor road for 5¼ miles until you see a Woods4sale sign on a tree trunk on the left side of the road (B on the plan).
- A further 300 metres brings you to an unclassified road on your left leading to Mochrum and Port William (point A).
- Please park safely near the entrance at B keeping clear of all farm gateways.
- The west boundary (AE) is the roadside verge.
- The north boundary (ABC) is the roadside verge, for the most part defined by a stone wall.
- The southeast boundary (CD) is the midline of the burn (stream), and (DE) the field edge fence.
The sporting rights are included. They are not let.
The coal is reserved to the National Coal Board.
Rights Of Way
There is direct access into the wood from the B7005.
The only boundary fence adjacent to fields is the short length DE on the plan. It is believed the responsibility for this is shared mutually with the neighbour.
