Large steading with outline planning for 5-bedroom house with paddocks, woodlands and loch extending to 18.24Ha (45.07 acres) or thereby. Secluded oasis with considerable potential.

Proposed Dwelling house
Planning approval was granted on 30 June 2014 by Aberdeenshire Council (ref: App/2014/1665) for the demolition of the steading building at Waulkmill and its replacement with a modern 5-bed dwelling house. The steading building has now largely been demolished leaving a cleared site for the purchaser. The seller has retained the better quality stone from the steading and this will be made available to the purchaser at no cost should they wish to utilise it.

The development site area extends to 0.48Ha (1.19 acres) of thereby. The site plan on page 6 of the brochure provides further detail of the planning permission.

Formerly part of the successful Waulkmill Fishery, the loch and surrounding amenity land extends to approximately 7 acres and is a delightful addition to the property. The loch provides excellent fly fishing and is currently let to the Fraserburgh Angling Club at a rent of £1,000 per annum. Woodland
Part of the land at Waulkmill has been planted as a mixed amenity woodland. These mature woodlands extend to approximately 14.5 acres and are interspersed with winding tracks and small pools which provide a tranquil and peaceful location for walking or gentle hacking. The woodlands also have the potential to provide an excellent source of sustainable firewood.

There are two large paddocks extending to approximately 19 acres that have been most recently used by the vendor as a successful clay pigeon shoot and air rifle ground. While this operation is no longer run at Waulkmill, the facility is still in place and the equipment would be made available to the purchasers by separate negotiation.

The vendor has retained the visitors' book and the comments from users of the shooting ground show the popularity of the site with many describing it as the best site in the north east and one of the best in Scotland.

Waulkmill offers purchasers considerable scope to take advantage of the location and setting with camping or chalet sites, outdoor activity centre or equestrian uses considered easily achievable.
