Rolling acres of land with dramatic views. Wester Barnegois an idyllic hidden gem on sale

More than a hundred acres of rolling countryside in the heart of Scotland are being brought to market by the rural arm of DM Hall Chartered Surveyors.

The remarkable, open-skied parcel of picturesque Scottish greenery – 105 acres in all – lies just to the north of the River Carron, near the village of Dunipace, and is on sale for offers of over £250,000.

Called Wester Barnego, the pastures, grazing and woodland are secluded and private, despite being within easy reach of excellent transport links, and are being seen in the current market as a real hidden gem.

Its undulating policies, which afford dramatic vistas of the surrounding countryside, could have been designed for outdoor pursuits, with hacking routes, countryside walks and cycling routes close by. The stunning Carron Valley Reservoir sparkles to the west.

Jennifer Campbell, Head of Rural Agency at DM Hall, said“This is a very special land parcel, with picturesque views and abundant wildlife in this tranquil spot which is actually only minutes from the central motorway network. The former farm steading, now ruinous, sits in an elevated position with far reaching views over the Carron Valley and towards Falkirk.

“It is the sort of asset which is in great demand at the moment as purchasers from across the world look to secure land for food productions, woodland creation and evaluate potential for an eco-house or other. Land will always hold its value, a finite resource, so interest is also likely to come from investors, diversifying their portfolio.

“It is difficult to put into words, the sense of calm and ethereal beauty, the walks are wondrous and wildlife a plenty!”

Wester Barnego, north-west of Mid Barnego Farm, also has a ruined farm steading from the 19th century, parts of which may date back to the 17th century, and featured bee boles – alcoves in a wall formerly used for beekeeping and honey-making.

There are also a number of impressive specimen trees and some small areas of mixed, broadleaf woodland, as well as bracken, wet rushes and gorse.

As a consequence of significant interest in the property, a closing date is likely to be set and viewings should be arranged by appointment.
