Attractive 0.65 Ha (1.61 Acre) Acre Wooded Site within Residential part of Broughty Ferry


The site adjoins the Dighty Burn within a predominantly residential area at the eastern edge of Broughty Ferry, a suburb of Dundee some 6 miles to the north-east of its City Centre. Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city with a population of 150,000, lying on the north side of the Tay Estuary, 60 miles to the north of Edinburgh and 80 miles to the north-east of Glasgow. The site is approximately 430 metres from the A92 Dundee to Arbroath road, off which access is taken to it along Panmurefield Road, a local authority adopted road for 200 metres and then along 230 metres of private stone track to the northern boundary of the site.


0.65 Ha (1.61 Acre) site, which is roughly rectangular in shape and comprises unenclosed land that has largely reverted to deciduous woodland, though has some open glades within it. There is some ivy growth over parts of the site and some invasion of the site by giant hogweed close to the Dighty Burn, which has been undergoing chemical control treatment in recent years. It is understood that the site was operated as a Bleachworks for approximately 100 years from 1830 to 1930 – the works buildings have long since been removed, though the remains of several walls and some of the building footprint can still be made out. The site is adjoined: (i) to the south by the Dighty Water – boundary length approx. 75m; (ii) to the west by a former Screening Chambers site under Scottish Water’s ownership – boundary length approx. 80m; (iii) to the north & east by a shared private stone access track beyond which are residential developments – boundary length approx. 155m.

Planning & Related Matters

The site is wholly covered by the Panmurefield Den Tree Preservation Order and lies within an area designated as a wildlife corridor and a site of local importance for Nature Conservation within the current and proposed Dundee City Council’s Local Development Plan. The access road that runs along the north & east sides of the site is used as a public right of way and forms part of circular footpath and cycleway routes managed by Dundee City Council. Local Planning Authority: Dundee City Council Development Management, Dundee House, 50 North Lindsay Street, Dundee, DD1 1LS.
