Lochans Wood lies on the south side of a larger gated wood situated approximately midway between Neilston and Newton Mearns, just west of Darnley Country Park. Junction 4 of the M77 is just 2 miles away giving easy access from Ayrshire, Glasgow and the Central Belt.

The wood occupies level and gently sloping east-facing ground lending a bright aspect to the property. It is principally populated by well spaced full canopy sycamore dating from the late 1970s plus the occasional beech, Norway spruce and larch. Below this is a scattering of regenerating hardwoods and shrubs including rowan, sycamore, beech and hawthorn. 

The woodland floor is composed of soft grasses, a variety of wild flowers, ferns and pockets of bluebells making for easy walking and access across most of the wood. There are lovely open views across fields to the south and east overlooking Glanderston Loch.

The wood is served by a substantial hard track leading to an ‘in-wood’ parking area at the north corner of the property.

Lying in a wholly rural location, Lochans belies its proximity to Glasgow and thus offers the ideal locus for those seeking a quick escape from the hurly-burly of city life.

If It Were Mine

I would be tempted to open up small coupes within the sycamore and introduce a variety of native species to diversify the habitat. And one or two conifers would add a bit of winter shelter and colour.

Camp fires and my log burner at home will both be well supplied by felling the occasional stem.

Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
