SPECTACULAR AMENITY AND WOODLAND ESTATE IN SCOTLAND'S SOUTHERN UPLANDS
Mosspeeble is a most attractive and peacefully situated amenity and woodland estate extending to about 1,130 acres in total. At its core lies Mosspeeble House, a fully modernised period farmhouse with well appointed accommodation, a traditional courtyard steading and well maintained grounds. There are two cottages which are currently let and provide a useful income.
The farmland is currently let on a seasonal basis for grazing. As a result the estate requires very little input by the owner in terms of either equipment, time or finance. The diverse terrain combined with the extensive woodland offers spectacular riding and walking country and for the sporting enthusiast there is first class driven shooting, roe stalking and duck flighting and the occasional grouse. Unusually, it is possible to drive across much of the estate by 4WD vehicle, allowing easy access for sport, management or simply enjoyment of the natural environment.
The extensive native woodlands planted over the last 15 years have enhanced the landscape and provide a magnificent backdrop which revolves with the seasons. Careful planning and much thought has been given to planting the right species in the most suitable environment. There is scope for some stands to be managed as productive broadleaves through selective pruning and thinning to produce valuable end timber, although not for another 50 70 years.
