Woodlands at Foreside, a 108.67ac site near the village of Neilston in west Scotland, is for sale as a whole or in three separate lots.
The site is situated one mile northwest of the village of Neilston on the outskirts of Glasgow and Galbraith.
According to the selling agency Galbraith, the land “presents the potential to develop woodland structures, natural habitats and biodiversity interests”.
As a whole, it is available for offers over £440,000, or in three lots as follows:
- Lot 1:19.89ha (49.15ac) – offers over £200,000;
- Lot 2: 15.43ha (38.13ac) – offers over £130,000;
- Lot 3: 8.66ha (21.40ac) – offers over £110,000.
The three individual parcels of woodland, which are all similar in composition, were planted at the same time under a single grant scheme.
They are mixed, mainly native broadleaved woodlands, with designed open ground and a developing ground flora.
Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale for Galbraith said: “The sale of Woodlands at Foreside presents an exciting opportunity for a single buyer or multiple parties interested in unlocking the woodland’s potential.
“Although to date, none of the planting has been registered under the Woodland Carbon Code and no accredited nor informal carbon claims have been made, future owners may benefit from opportunities which may arise with respect to the expanding woodland carbon marketplace, for both accredited and non-accredited woodland carbon.”
“The developing soil carbon market is also another prospect for interested parties to consider given the emerging evidence indicating that woodland soils are one of the richest carbon stores after peatland.”
The woodland is split into two separate areas by the public road and the amenity woodland sections have been planted under a woodland scheme which was completed over 15 years ago and are interspersed with some smaller areas of open ground.
