About this property

  • Arnsheen Woodland was planted in 1990 and in common with plantations of that time has a high proportion of Sitka Spruce, the primary commercial conifer species. The property extends to an area of about 54 hectares in total. The land is gently sloping and lies between 125m and 170m above sea level with a general aspect. A detailed compartment schedule is available on request from the selling agents.

    Growth rates are generally good, with a weighted average Yield Class of 18 and the timber on the property is now at late rotation stage. There are minor components of mixed conifers and broadleaves.

    Sporting rights are included with vacant possession. Roe deer are present and there is potential to develop rough shooting across the site, facilitated by the network of rides and glades. The sporting rights have previously been let over recent years and the purchaser could choose to re-let these again or enjoy them in hand.

Local information

  • Arnsheen Woodland is located in rural South Ayrshire close to the village of Barrhill, 14 miles northwest from Newton Stewart and 38 miles south of Ayr. South Ayrshire is well known for timber growth and production and affords good transport links to a wide range of competitive markets for all grades of timber product.

Additional information

  • Arnsheen Woodland is served by a main access off the B7027 road which is a consultation route for timber haulage. The wood benefits from the right to use the nearby in forest timber haulage route that connects the B7027 to the A714 at Wheeb Bridge. The A714 is extensively used by timber traffic and provides a direct link to the A75 and A77 trunk roads.
