Moine Odhar was established in 1985 with a commercial timber crop dominated by Sitka spruce. The property was planted with small pockets of Sitka/lodgepole pine mix however, these areas now contain predominantly pure Sitka. The woodland enjoys a spectacular setting in the western end of the Great Glen with surrounding views of Ben Nevis and the Grey Corries. A recent volume estimate from plot sampling has been carried out within the wood that suggest a standing volume of approximately 17,500 m3 on the stocked conifer area. This indicates a good volume of standing timber with potential to increase the yield class of the next rotation using the latest improved growing stock and ground preparation techniques, thereby adding value. The following table below summarises the current crop composition by area. Please contact the selling agent for further information and to request a copy of the timber volume survey and approved long term forest plan.
