Held between Loch Striven and the Firth of Clyde and harnessing the beauty and seclusion of three glens, Glen Massan Estate is a spectacular property in the heart of the Cowal Peninsula.
The rugged mountainous landscape together with a mild west coast climate has helped create a special forestry and sporting estate which is being brought to the market by Bidwells.
Situated beyond the end of a public road, with no through traffic, Glen Massan is a very private property yet can be reached within one hour of Glasgow airport. The estate boasts large areas of excellent quality conifer forestry and interesting and challenging hill and woodland red deer stalking as well as an agricultural element.
Perhaps one of the most charming aspects of this 3,280-hectare (8,100 acres) estate is that it offers great potential for its new owners to really put their own mark on it in the form of a principal residence or traditional shooting lodge. In addition to a recently renovated (to a very high standard) four-bedroom cottage (Corrie Massan), Glen Massan offers a second cottage (Garrochra) in a stunning location which is ripe for development into a substantial dwelling. There is existing planning permission to transform this cottage into a lodge, ideal for sporting guests and entertaining.
Indeed, such is the prospect of Glen Massan, that Bidwells is expecting keen interest from both UK and overseas parties. Raymond Henderson of Bidwells is managing the sale of this unique property:
Glen Massan is a large, very private estate with excellent accessibility and real commercial prospects.
Raymond Henderson, Partner, Forestry
"It is not just a stunning landscape to be enjoyed but is a sound commercial proposition with the majority of its value being in really prime quality conifer forestry – much of it in its second rotation. Well proven forestry road infrastructure is in place and there is good access to timber markets, which makes this property a first class investment prospect.”
