The subjects of sale lie in a C-shaped block and comprise a block of hill ground extending to about 288 acres (117 hectares), two areas of amenity woodland extending to about 45 acres (18 hectares) and some low ground pastures extending to about 133 acres (54 hectares).

Within the subjects is the summit of Quinlochmore, which is a prominent ridge with the remains of a prehistoric fort. On the east side of the ridge, the land slopes steeply towards the Blane Water, which forms the eastern boundary. To the west of the ridge, the gradient is more subtle and slopes towards the western boundary of the A809.

The land is categorised by The James Hutton Institute as class 4 and 5. The low ground is most suited to producing grass and is capable of growing short arable break crops, and the hill’s appropriate use is improved grassland. The underlying soil is made up of a combination of alluvial soils and non calcerous peaty gleys. The overlying vegetation combines a small amount of ling heather with a variety of upland shrubs and grasses and some areas of bracken.

From an agricultural perspective, the land has been grazed for generations in the traditional manner by a combination of both sheep and cattle. The existing remnants of stone shielings on the western face of the hill are testament to the longevity of this land use. The entirety of the Land at Quinloch is enclosed by a combination of post and wire fencing and dry stone walls (‘dykes’).

The ground may have potential for a diverse and well-designed woodland and forestry-planting scheme, subject to discussions with the Forestry Commission. The public road adjoining the subjects has no restrictions for timber haulage and the area falls into the central Scotland Green Network.

This property has 466 acres of land.
