A MUCH-LOVED East Renfrewshire beauty spot is up for sale.

Land at Craig O’Neilston, which extends to around 433 acres and includes the Neilston Pad at its highest point, is on the market for offers over £900,000.

It is described by estate agents Galbraith as “a rare opportunity to acquire a commercial forestry investment, with additional planting potential, subject to Scottish Forestry approval.”

Significant areas of commercial and amenity woodland have been planted on the site under various woodland schemes over a number of years.

The site, close to Neilston, is also home to Craighall Dam and Snypes Dam.

Along with these two large lochs with fishing potential, the advert also describes a “productive block of pasture and open grazing ground.”

It adds that, in light of the topography of the ground, “the subjects of sale may present longer-term renewable opportunities, subject to obtaining necessary planning and associated grid connections.”

Planning permission was obtained in November for the creation of a new access road leading from Kingston Road to the east of the site.

It is the larger of two pieces of land currently up for sale next to the village.

Land at the west of Glen Doll Road is also on the market for a guide price of £15,000 and is due to be auctioned off on Friday, June 18.

The Levern Water runs through the 8.4-acre site, which is described by Future Property Auctions as a “rare opportunity to acquire an area of land for investment, with additional planting potential, subject to planning approval.”
