Description

Description
Crochail Forest is located on the lower slopes of Meall Cluainidh to the south west of the River Glass. The woodland extends to approximately 89 hectares (221.08 acres) and is predominantly mixed conifers established, by the neighbouring Mauld Estate, in the 1960’s on a former ancient woodland site.

The woodland consists of Sitka Spruce, Scots Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Douglas Fir, Norway Spruce and Larch. Within the property there is a small arboretum comprising of a variety of rare conifers including Forrest Fir, Rupprecht Larch, Brewster Spruce, Morinda Spruce and Mexican White Pine. Examples of which warrant special mention in John Millers Trees of The Northern Highlands.

Some conifer clearance has taken place to improve deer stalking and the site now benefits from open areas with natural birch regeneration. These open areas provide good habitats which support local flora and fauna and create a broken mosaic woodland habitat. In addition to the woodland the property has a small pond, meadow flush and a charming picturesque gorge.

Development potential
There is at least one potential development site on the property (subject to consent) offering panoramic views of the Strathglass valley and surrounding hills. Private and secluded, a site would offer the purchaser a peaceful and tranquil setting for a house.

Forest Plan
The woodlands are included in a Long Term Forestry Plan which commenced in 2012 and has 6 years remaining. Please note there is a restocking obligation, please contact us for more details.

Sporting

Sporting

The sporting rights are not subject to a lease and come with vacant possession. With a number of rides and open areas throughout, the woodlands provide good sporting potential. Furthermore, there is scope to develop the small pond for duck flighting. The woodland is home to a mix of both Red and Sika deer, which move across the property and are held in the numerous woodland compartments. The current owners encourage deer to the ground with deer licks and have been careful not to overshoot. Approximately 10 red deer were shot last year.

There are no fishings on the property but fishing can be arranged on the River Glass by negotiation with the Strathglass Fishing Society.
