Nestled at the eastern edge of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park the property is situated approximately 1.3 miles from Callander on the periphery of the charming hamlet of Kilmahog with Ben Ledi, the highest peak in the Trossachs, 2 miles to the west. There is vehicular access from the A821 at the eastern extremity of the property.


The site extends to approximately 30 acres (12 ha) and is comprised of principally mature silver birch but with a range of other mixed broadleaves. The woodland is situated between a former railway, now a public cycle route, to the south, with the midpoint of the River Leny forming the boundary to the north. To the west lies the scenic Falls of Leny, while to the east is the access point from the A821 adjacent to the Kilmahog bridge. The woodland would benefit from selective thinning and felling throughout , which might might create additional space for furtherer natural

regeneration or other woodland activities.

Leny Meadows might lend itself to a variety of different uses in addition to the existing purely ecological and natural regenerative focus, including a forest school or a site for eco-lodges, possibly a hut or huts, subject to adhering to the requisite statutory guidance and relevant building regulations. It will almost certainly be of interest to those looking to create a “glamping” site.

Surrounding Area:

The local area, which is steeped in history, has become a popular recreational and tourist destination due to its spectacular scenery and accessibility from Central Scotland , with approximate drive times from Glasgow and Edinburgh of a little over an hour to and hour and a half respectively.

The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park has an array of outdoor activity opportunities with numerous lochs, scenic trails and hills to explore offering diverse wildlife including black grouse, golden eagle, osprey, pine marten, red squirrel, and otters to name but a few. There are cycling and walking tracks nearby with the Callander to Strathyre Cycleway running along the southern boundary of the property following the old Callander to Oban Railway. Fishing, stalking, mountain biking, canoeing and climbing can all be found in close proximity.

Development Potential:

There is a growing interest in hut, bothy and temporary shelter building, especially in Scotland and the Local Development Plan does provide support for new or improved visitor facilities, accommodation and visitor infrastructure (including recreation and access proposals) where it comprises a small-scale development within areas of countryside with access to the existing recreational network of paths, infrastructure or visitor facilities. However, it would be up to the purchaser to make the necessary investigations regarding this and gain the requisite permissions.

A closing date may be fixed, and prospective purchasers are advised to formally register their interest through their solicitors with the selling agents. Prospective purchasers

should be aware that unless their interest in the property is formally noted, no guarantee can be given that confirmation of a closing date will be provided, consequently the property may be sold without prior notice. For the avoidance of doubt, noting interest only entitles prospective purchasers

to notification of a closing date being set and not that other potentially competing pre-emptive offers have been received.

Should there be any discrepancy between these particulars, stipulations, special conditions of sale and missives of sale the

missives shall prevail.


It should be noted that Salmon fishing rights are not included with the sale.

that may be required, from time to time, in order to support any conditional offers submitted to the seller. Bidwells LLP
