Auction Rescheduled to 2pm Wednesday 28th September 2022
Aberfoyle – “The Gateway to the Trossachs” is situated within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, some 20 miles west of Stirling and 26 miles from Glasgow. The town is very much on the “Tourist Trail” and welcomes a significant number of visitors all year round. The surrounding area offers wide range of outdoor pursuits all set within spectacular countryside. Grid Ref: 251287,701423
Heading west, pass through Aberfoyle, onto Lochard Road (B829) going straight on towards Kinlochard and Inversnaid. Continue west towards Milton, for approximately 0.5 mile, passing the local Primary School and Nursery and just prior to the signs for Milton, turn right towards Craigfoot Terrace. The roadway becomes a more roughly surfaced track and the property is directly ahead, to the left and rises steeply to the northwest where it forms part of Craigmore Hill. The title area appears to include the summit of Craigmore at 387m.
Formerly part of a quarry worked for the extraction of blue-grey dolerite, the stone was used for many of the traditional buildings in and around Aberfoyle. The level area of the site, to the rear of Creag Mhor Lodge is covered with a mix of mature and semi-mature deciduous trees (predominately oak) and undergrowth. Within this relatively level area are the remnants of structures and equipment associated with the original quarrying activity. As the ground rises, the woodland thins with the upper reaches of the site only lightly vegetated and mainly comprised of rocky outcrops. The property forms part of the Cuilvona and Craigmore SSSI (Ref Number 477) which is part of the Trossachs Special Area of Conservation. Copies of documents issued by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) relating to the SSSI are available upon request.
The lot offers a near unique opportunity to acquire nearly 30 acres of land/hillside located in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The upper parts of Craigmore command stunning views across the surrounding countryside, whilst the southern part of the property might offer scope for alternative use, subject to obtaining all necessary consents from the planning authority and SNH.
