Ewich Forest, Crianlarich - for full details please request a copy of the brochure
Location and Directions
Ewich Forest is located to the west of the famous village of Crianlarich, renowned as the gateway to the Highlands and a key staging post for visitors to Loch Lomond to the south, Glen Coe and Oban to the west and Killin to the east, as well as being a hub for the long distance West Highland Way, which runs through the property.
The forest is located immediately to the west of the village and benefits from two main access points directly from the A82, one of which connects to the recently constructed roundabout approximately 350m south of Crianlarich railway station, while the other is approximately 2 miles west of Crianlarich, towards Tyndrum. A third access from the A82 just south of the Herive Burn is also present. The grid reference of the approximate centre of the property is NN 360 255.
Situated at the junction of the A82 and A85 trunk roads, the property is well located for haulage to timber markets. Two main access points marked A (grid ref: NN 362 271) and B (grid ref: NN 382 247) on the sales plan, provide direct links to the A82 trunk road, with a further third access point, marked C (grid ref: NN 370 265) on the sales plan.
No internal forest road network currently exists, providing scope for the purchaser to construct infrastructure tailored to their harvesting and management programme.
Ewich is a large-scale, productive conifer woodland located in the Central Highlands with proximity to regional and national timber markets. The woodland, primarily comprised of Sitka spruce, with significant proportions of Hybrid larch and Lodgepole pine was planted in 1978 and 1979.
Growth rates and ground conditions are variable across the site with some areas of spruce growing at levels well above the national average. Conifer crops found alongside the A82 on the lower elevations of the property can be considered silviculturally mature for the most part. An immediate programme of harvesting and forest road construction could be planned subject to gaining the necessary consents and permissions.
The prospect of restructuring areas of larch and lodgepole pine with more productive conifer species presents itself over significant sections of the site, subject to the necessary permissions. In addition to the mosaic of open ground found in upper elevation areas, there is an attractive mix of native broadleaved trees to be found along the Herive Burn, the main watercourse bisecting the property. The purchaser will have the opportunity to create their own management plan for the woodland which may include the expansion of native woodland remnants along the river.
Please note that there are differences between the area shown on the Title Plan, and the area detailed in the compartment schedule. The property will be sold as per the Title Plan.
Please note all signage will be removed and does not form part of the sale.
A data room has been set up for prospective purchasers containing; Title documentation, draft offer to sell, compartment maps, sub-compartment database, GIS files and the draft land management plan. For further information and access to the data room, please contact Bidwells.
There are no current grant schemes in place over the property. While no Forest Plan is in place, a draft land management plan has been produced and is located in the data room along with details of the EIA approval for the construction of 6.5km of new forest roads and associated quarries.
