The land is located to the north of the village of Drumnadrochit, accessed via the minor road which runs from the A82 to Drumbuie / Achtuie Farm. The site can be accessed via a private track. Currently suitable for ATV access, the purchaser will be given full servitude rights over the track, including the right to upgrade for forestry purposes. The land is only available for sale as a Whole. However, due to there being joint sellers we require separate offers to be submitted for each land parcel, as shown coloured yellow, red and blue respectively on the sales plan.
The three parcels can be summarised as follows:

Parcel 1 – Achtuie Woodlands
This is the central area, and extends to approximately 185 Ha. This area was planted in the early 2000s as a native pinewood scheme and is well established. The scheme is out of contract and there are no grant schemes or forest plans in place, and no transfer of obligations required.
The woodlands currently offer excellent shelter and amenity. There are areas of open ground that
may be suitable for additional planting subject to obtaining the necessary consents from Scottish
Forestry.

Parcel 2 – Upper Drumbuie Hill
The western area is known as Upper Drumbuie Hill. This area extends to approximately 109 Ha,
and has previously been used as sheep grazing land. The land is undulating, ranging between
350m and 418m above sea level, with soils being humus iron podzols with peaty podzols.

Parcel 3 – Tychat Hill
This is the eastern parcel and extends to approximately 158 Ha of bare land. There has been little activity on this land in recent years. Like parcel 2, the land is undulating ranging between 320m and 440m above sea level with similar soils of humus iron podzols with peaty podzols. The land marches with an established FLS plantation to the east.
