Land and Woodland Extending to 1.9 Ha (4.73 Acres)


Craik is a small hamlet located in Craik Forest which is a large, remote woodland in the Southern Uplands of the Scottish Borders. It lies some 7 miles south west of the village of Roberton and 12.5 miles south west of Hawick, around a 20 minute drive, where there is supermarket shopping, sporting and leisure facilities, schooling and railway transport links. Although the village is set within a secluded setting, the A7 is easily accessible for travel both north and south. The area is renowned for its red squirrel population and its roman history. It is ideal for outdoor pursuits including hill walking, riding and cycling.


Heading south on the A7 from Selkirk, after 5 miles turn right at Ashkirk and continue to follow this road until you reach a ‘T’ junction at Roberton. Turn right onto the B711 and then fork left, this road to leads to Craik. Please note that no vehicular access is to be taken into the village after the Craik Forestry signage. There is a safe area to park within the car park. The subjects of sale are located at the far end of the track. Please be mindful of farming and forestry activities and residents use within the area. Viewers take access at their own risk. Grid Ref: NT3482708430.


The subjects of sale are located on the north edge of the hamlet and comprise of two distinct areas, an area of grass field extending to 1.41 Ha (3.5 Acres) and an area of woodland extending to 0.49 Ha (1.23 Acres). The grass area comprises a south west facing slope and is fairly steep and undulating with rock formation under the surface. The site is bounded to the north east and south west by post and wire fencing and old stone dykes, and to the north west and south east, stockproof post and wire fencing. It should be noted that the position of the south eastern fenceline is understood to be located slightly within the title area. There is an old tank in the grass field which we understand at one time supplied water to the neighbouring cottage but has now been redundant for many years. At the time of our inspection, the grass area had been left unused for some time and it was overgrown with moss, weeds and wildflowers. The woodland area comprises mainly of a mix of mature broadleaves and spruce. This area adjoins the grass area and is close to the farm buildings and cottage. It isn’t demarcated apart from where it adjoins the grass area although the fence and dyke are now in need of repair. This is a pleasant area of woodland and is a haven for wildlife. Generally, the area for sale is surrounded by forestry, farmland and farm buildings. There is a privately owned cottage at the site which bounds the subjects on three sides. Please note that the cottage and its garden ground are not associated with the area for sale. Prospective purchasers are advised to check title and access provision, site plans and boundaries, the details of which are included within the title pack which can be obtained from the seller’s solicitors. This is an interesting site which may provide an opportunity for a number of uses, subject to gaining any necessary planning consents. All rights reserved.
