The Woodland at Laverlaw is situated just to the south east of Peebles, overlooking the Tweed Valley. The countryide is extremely attractive and is principally agricultural land in the fertile valley with extensive forestry on the surrounding hills.

The majority of the woodland was established in 2004 with predominantly hardwood planting for sporting and amenity purposes.

The total area is about 63.65 Ha (157.29 acres) of which about 8.60 acres are three stands of Sitka Spruce nearing maturity.

The hardwood trees are now well established and there is excellent roading servicing the property. The land rises between 200m at the Kirk Burn to about 400m above sea level at the highest point from which there are excellent views over the Tweed Valley and the surrounding countryside.

The plantation is mainly of hardwoods totalling (about 44.67 Ha) with birch, ash, sycamore, alder and some oaks. Some small areas have been planted with conifers (about 10.03 Ha). The plantation was established under a Farm Woodland Premium Scheme which has expired.

The woodland is well laid out for deer stalking. It benefits from large conifer stands on two of the boundaries which attract deer.

In recent years about 18 deer p.a have been taken however in the past this number has been up to 30.
There are five high seats in good positions for stalking purposes.

There is a log cabin situated on the land for shelter and storage.
