Nether Auchendrane lies just to the south of Ayr next to Alloway in South Ayrshire. Originally part of the local estate, the woodlands sit in a very accessible and desirable location overlooking the River Doon. Residential development has taken place around Nether Auchendrane more recently highlighting the potential for further development and mixed use alongside woodland management. The nearest postcode to locate the lots is KA7 4EE and please also refer to the location and sale plans for directions.


The property is being sold in three lots, as described, or as a whole.

Lot 1

Area: 4.73 Hectares / 11.68 Acres

Offers Over £25,000 - Under Offer

The mature woodland was felled in 2022 and all timber has been removed from site to leave the fertile brown earth soil for the next rotation of woodland. Both conifer and hardwood species were growing within lot 1 and thanks to its fertility and sheltered location, a broad range of species could be planted or left to naturally regenerate.

Lot 2

Area: 2.97 Hectares / 7.33 Acres

Offers Over £15,000 - Under Offer

This section of woodland was felled at the same time as lot 1 and is also to be replanted or it could be left to naturally regenerate along with lot 1. Lot 2 sits on a gentle slope above lot 1 with an attractive view across the surrounding countryside and would make a great location for further residential development.

Lot 3

Area: 3.62 Hectares / 8.94 Acres

Offers Over £40,000 - Available

Cathcart wood was originally established around 1977 with a mixture of conifer and broadleaved species that includes mature Sitka spruce, Norway spruce, Scots pine, Douglas fir, Ash, Sycamore, Cherry, Oak, Beech and Hazel growing along a fertile bank overlooking a very pretty section of the river Doon. A felling licence has been approved to fell 2.79 hectares of the softwood timber crop and permission to thin the remaining mixed broadleaves.

The riverside boundary is set back 4.57 metres from the river Doon riverbank yet the property still benefits from this idyllic setting with a wide diversity of species, including a carpet of wild garlic in spring and a good supply of firewood and softwood timber ready to be harvested.

As a Whole - 11.56 Hectares / 28.56 Acres

Offers Over £80,000
