Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A well maintained mid-rotation commercial woodland in northern Scotland with good sporting potential

Planted in 1989 and 1993, Easan Forest is composed of primarily Sitka spruce and Lodgepole pine with elements of native broadleaves, Scots pine and Japanese larch.

The crop is well established and a prospective owner can expect to realise capital appreciation coupled with a period of relatively low maintenance costs. The property contains a lochan and unplanted areas providing easily accessible good wildlife habitat and amenity value.

Third Party Servitudes and Burdens
The property is to be sold under the conditions of the Title Deeds, subject to all servitude rights, burdens, reservations and wayleaves including rights of way and rights of access howsoever constituted. The purchaser will be held responsible to have satisfied themselves as to the nature of all should they exist.

The woodland is fenced, with the area of roadside broadleaves protected by deer fencing.

Sporting rights are owned and in hand. Additional good deer stalking and fishing are available locally.

Grant Schemes
There are no Grant Scheme or Long Term Forest Plan obligations, providing the potential purchaser with flexibility in determining future management of the forest.

No transfer of obligations undertaking will be required.

At present all revenue from timber sales is Income Tax free. There is no Capital Gains Tax on timber, although there may be a liability on the land. Under the Inheritance Tax regime, 100% Business Property Relief should be available on commercial woodlands after two years ownership.

Mineral rights are included, except as provided for by statute.
