Location and Directions
Drumtassie Woodland is located between Glasgow and Edinburgh, 3 miles north west of Armadale. Access can be taken to both the northern and southern sections of Drumtassie off the minor public road which bisects the property as well as the minor public road that runs along the east of the woodland (see Location Plan). The grid reference for the main access point from the public road is NS 904 707.
Access can be taken into the main forestry block (Lot 1) south of the public road via an existing forest road running north-south through the middle of the forest. Access to the woodland north of the public road (Lot 2) can currently only be taken on foot. No timber transport group operates in this area and there are no know constraints to timber haulage.
The majority of Drumtassie was planted in 1999 and 2000 with areas of larch, broadleaves as well as intimate mixtures of conifers and broadleaves, with the remainder being open ground.
The forest is bisected by a minor public road, with Lot 1 located south of the public road and Lot 2 located to the north. Both sections of the property benefit from attractive ride networks primarily associated with utilities wayleaves, facilitating easy access around the woodlands including the ponds in the southwest of Lot 1.
Please note, all signage will be removed and does not form part of the sale.

Viewing and Closing Date
Viewing is strictly by appointment with the Selling Agents. It is anticipated that a closing date for best offers will be set in due course but the owner reserves the right to sell without setting a formal closing date. The owner will not be bound to accept the highest or indeed any offer.
Potential purchasers are advised to formally register their interest, in order that they may be informed if a closing date for offers is set.
Purchasers should have their solicitor submit a Letter of Intent for the whole, detailing the price, date of entry and any conditions, which they require to attach to their offer. The solicitors acting on behalf of the vendor will then issue an offer to sell to the successful bidder.
