Brunston Plantation is situated next to the pretty village of Dailly in South Ayrshire, Scotland. Adjacent to the Water of Girvan and Brunston Castle self-catering lodges within a peaceful yet accessible valley just 6.5 miles east of the town of Girvan. The area is included within the Galloway & Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere Reserve thanks to its diverse countryside with potential for sustainable development.
To reach the woodland travel to the village of Dailly and the woodland can be found just to the west of the village across the Water of Girvan and next to the B741, signposted Brunston Castle. Then turn on to Golf Course Road where the woodland boundary follows the edge of the road. Please also refer to the location and sale plans.
The woodland was planted during the 1970’s with a range of conifer species alongside an area of semi natural Birch and mixed broadleaved woodland that is now mature and could be thinned/felled or left to grown on for longer. The mature conifer consists of primarily Japanese larch with some areas of Sitka spruce, Norway spruce, Grand fir and Western red cedar which has been thinned in the past to create an attractive stand of maturing timber.
There are also mature broadleaves scattered in pockets through the conifer which will produce some firewood and logs. The understorey has developed into a rich mosaic of woodland Ferns, Bracken and fungi with great potential to open up woodland glades to create a glamping site or similar, subject to planning permission.
Some of the Larch has already been affected by Phytophthora ramorum which could be felled and as the woodland lies within the existing Management Zone, immediate felling of the Larch is no longer required and could be felled over time.
