Jerah Wood lies on the southwest side of a broad glen at the west end of Ochil Hills in central Scotland. Despite being an upland location, Stirling city centre is just four miles to the south. The M9/A9 junction at Dunblane is 3 miles to the west enabling easy access from further afield.
Jerah was felled of its conifer crop about 7 years ago. Apart from a thin line of trees on its west side the site is open and ready for re-stocking. The brash from the previous crop has been windrowed into lines leaving clear ground between for re-planting.
Except for the west edge by the public road, the site is stock fenced. A new owner may wish to complete the enclosure and upgrade to deer height to aid the establishment of young trees.
The Battle of Sheriffmuir which marked the end of the Jacobite Rising in 1715 was fought immediately to the north of Jerah Wood. This historic area is also a most attractive one with hills rising to over 1,800 feet to the east and wide views over the upper Forth Valley and Flanders Moss to the west. The prospects for recreation within and adjacent to Jerah are self-evident.
If It Were Mine
Jerah is ready to be restocked. The empty canvas gives plenty of design scope subject to fulfilling the felling licence conditions. The majority is to be replanted with spruce but I would also look to maximise conservation potential through careful use of open ground and native broadleaves especially in the vicinity of the watercourse.

Residential Planning Permission
You are extremely unlikely to get residential planning permission for this woodland.
Directions & Access
- Head north out of Stirling on the A9 towards Bridge of Allan.
- Just before Bridge of Allan and just after the entrance to Stirling University, turn right onto Kenilworth Road (signed for Sheriffmuir), and then after 230m take the first right onto Sheriffmuir Road.
- Leaving houses, the road climbs and bends left up through a narrow wooded gully.
- Emerging from the gully ensure you then fork right, following for Sheriffmuir.
- Continue on this narrow upland road for 1.8 miles, until you see a thin line of roadside trees on your right, including a pine tree supporting a Woods4sale sign (A on plan). Jerah is now on your right.
- You can park on the hard-standing area at A. Please keep clear of all gateways.
- The west boundary (AB) is the roadside verge.
- The northeast boundary (BCD) is variously the line of an old fence and stone wall to the southwest of a small watercourse.
- The southwest boundary (DEFA) is 1 metre to the southwest side of the hard track.
- The boundary between the two lots (CF) is marked by a line of orange-topped posts.
The sporting rights are included. They are not let.
Rights Of Way
- There is direct access into the wood from the minor county road adjacent.
- There is a right of way reserved to others over the hard track DEFA.
As is usual in Scotland it is believed that boundary fences are shared with neighbours. If sold as two lots then either party may erect a stock or deer fence on the boundary between the two lots with subsequent maintenance shared by the adjacent owners.
