The property is shown on the location and sale plans within these particulars and can be found on OS Sheet 1:50,000 Number 37, Grid

Access into the woodland from the entrance is presently taken on foot. The A980 public road is classified as an Agreed Route in the

Timber Transport Forum’s Agreed Routes Map.


Findrack Wood extends to 43.61ha, according to Title. The woodland is dominated by stands of high yielding Sitka spruce, extending to 37.80 hectares, planted in 1981. These crops are well stocked and

exhibit good tree form, with significant volumes of standing timber available for harvesting, subject to gaining the necessary consent. The woodland also benefits from stands of Douglas fir in mixture with

Sitka spruce, and Scots pine in pure stands and in intimate mixture with Japanese larch.

The woodland also contains attractive stands of both native and mixed broadleaves, predominantly planted in 1981 and forming well defined species diversity for future restructuring of the woodland.

These broadleaved woodlands extend to approximately 1.51 hectares and are complemented by a network of open ground and other land of approximately 0.65 hectares.
