An extensive area of land where Robert the Bruce’s army “disposed of weapons” after the Battle of Dalrigh has gone up for sale.
Galbraith property consultancy said buyers have an opportunity to own a “slice of Scotland”.
Auchreoch comprises a block of hill land extending to approximately 1520.31 acres (615.26 hectares) in total and is situated approximately 2.7 miles to the northwest of the village of Crianlarich, Perthshire in central Scotland.
The land is filled with famed Scots history with the northern section of the land, close to River Fillan, hosting Lochan nan Arm which translates to Lochan of the Weapons.
This lochan is said to be where Robert the Bruce’s army disposed of their weapons as they retreated following their defeat at the Battle of Dalrigh.
The battle was fought in 1306 against Clan MacDougall of Argyll, who were allies of Clan Comyn and the English.
The land lies within the heart of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which Galbraith said offers “superb natural capital and amenity” opportunities.
Iain Paterson, who is handling the sale for Galbraith, said the land offers a “fantastic” opportunity for those hoping to own a slice of Scotland.
“The woodland at Auchreoch, together with the extensive hill ground, offers a superb position and great opportunity for potential enhancement and diversification projects with a Natural Capital focus,” he said.
“Be it woodland creation, eco-tourism related enterprises, re-wilding, conservation and bio-diversity enhancement orientated projects or such similar focused interests, all subject to obtaining the required permissions. Auchreoch also offers the potential for sporting interests, with the possibility of Red, Roe and grouse shooting.”
