Property description



Bunloit Estate sits in a highly prominent position overlooking one of the most iconic features of Scotland – Loch Ness, situated in the centre of the Scottish Highlands. Carved out over Millennia, this uniquely dramatic landscape is one of the most famous locations in Europe. Not to mention the famous "Loch Ness Monster sightings" it is one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the British Isles.

Lot 3 – BUNLOIT MOOR
(52.73 Ha / 130.50 Acres)

An attractive mix of open moorland, wetland and a maturing conifer shelterbelt lying to the west of the public road. The land has been used for rough grazing in the past and could be again. Indeed, the land rising up to the shelterbelt which could also be considered for the establishment of native woodland.

The woodland extends to 7.42 hectares/18.33 acres and was planted in 1977 with Lodgepole pine. Whilst currently retained for long term shelter, this could be felled and replaced as part of a wider woodland project.

Sporting
The sporting rights are included with each lot and enjoyed by the owners in hand. The mix of different land uses and habitats on the estate encourages a great range of game and wildlife species. Red, Roe and Sika deer are all present on the estate and wild Boar (feral) are now becoming more abundant, having escaped from nearby farms, and enjoying the highly favourable habitat, along with red squirrels, badger, pine marten and numerous species of birds.

Two of the lochans on the estate (Lot 1) have been stocked with brown trout and riparian rights for fishing on Loch Ness are also included with Lot 1.

There is scope to create a game shoot and wild fowling on the estate, given the undulating land scape and presence of ponds or simply to enhance the habitat for the benefit of the wildlife for nature conservation.
