Introduction

Parkhill Woods extend to approximately 43.45 hectares (107.36 acres), comprising 34.60ha of mature commercial conifer species, 5.45ha of mixed broadleaves, 1.70ha of felled over land and the balance comprising open ground. This is an opportunity to acquire an attractive mature

mixed woodland offering potential (subject to obtaining the necessary felling permissions) for income generation from

timber sales.

Location and directions

Parkhill Woods are situated on the outskirts of the town of Dyce, lying approximately 6 miles northwest of the city of Aberdeen in the northeast of Scotland. The property is

shown on the location and sale plans within these and can be found on OS Sheet 1:50,000 Number 38, Grid Reference:

NJ 909 135. From Aberdeen, take the A956 north for approximately 2 miles to Bridge of Don. Crossing the river, turn left onto the B997 (Balgownie Road) then continue on

the B997 for approximately 4 miles. Just beyond Birkhill, turn left at the signpost to Grandhome and Whitestripes and

continue on this road for approximately 400 yards to the entrance of Parkhill Woods.
