Bahill Wood is located just a mile south of the market town of Huntly in Aberdeenshire. Surrounded by good quality agricultural land, highlighting the potential of the land within Bahill Wood to grow good timber and a mixed woodland with a range of species.
The woodland was planted in 1955 with a mix of Scots pine, Larch, Norway spruce, Sitka spruce and Douglas fir. Following some recent felling and thinning that took place in 2019, there is now approximately 7.06 hectares of the original timber crop remaining and a further 3.00 hectares of native broadleaved woodland established along the northern face and around the edge of the woodland. A new loading bay was constructed to extract timber and now creates a useful access, which could be extended into the woodland.
The felling extended over two sections, totalling 14.30 hectares, leaving some very fertile land to be replanted which will produce an excellent timber crop with the following species approved for replanting by Scottish Forestry. Sitka spruce (9.80 Ha), Scots pine/Hybrid larch (3.60 Ha) and mixed Broadleaves (0.90 Ha). However, this species mix and design could be changed by way of an amendment, if necessary.
Woodlands of this size are rarely available for sale in this region and there may be the opportunity to place a cabin or two in the woodland to enjoy the calming effect of the woodland and its far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.
