For sale as a whole or in three separate lots, Woodlands at Foreside is 43.98 Ha (108.67 Acres) in total and presents the potential to develop woodland structures, natural habitats and biodiversity interests.
Situated one mile north west of the village of Neilston on the outskirts of Glasgow, the land benefits from being close to amenities and enjoying some panoramic views across the beautiful countryside.
The three individual parcels of woodland, which are all similar in composition, were planted at the same time under a single grant scheme. They comprise mixed, mainly native broadleaved woodlands with designed open ground with a developing ground flora which combine to provide an interesting variety of habitats for a range of woodland birds. Parts of the woodland are bounded by established hedgerows adding to the habitat diversity.
Duncan Barrie, 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 market place, 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.
