The sale includes two cottages - one modern and one traditional - as well as a farm building/workshop.

Jock Galbraith, partner at Goldcrest, said: “Glengoulandie is a wonderful estate situated in the beautiful scenery of Highland Perthshire. The mix of young forestry, grass fields and moorland provides a balance of commerciality and amenity/natural capital.

“The forestry crops are well established and will produce good timber volumes for the future. The open hill is dramatically beautiful and includes heather moorland and craggy outcrops which have been largely untouched for many years, offering excellent sporting and natural capital opportunities.

“Glengoulandie is a highly attractive offering and we believe the combination of forestry, sporting and natural capital will generate significant interest.”

Meanwhile, foresters are being urged to adapt their woodlands to minimise the risks of climate change.

Glengoulandie is an extensive forest estate near Aberfeldy.

Increasing tree species and diversity, creating mixed woodlands, using natural regeneration and careful selection of tree provenance are just some of the measures being advised.

The advice is contained in a new UK Forestry standard practice guide produced by the Forest Research agency.
