Tighnabruaich Community Sawmill Comes To Market

An exceptionally rare opportunity to operate a community Sawmill has been available on a long-term lease basis at Kilfinan Community Forest in Tighnabruaich, with local commercial development contracts available to support the growth of the business.

The sawmill is part of the Kilfinan Community Forest Company (KCFC) which manages over 500 hectares of Acharossan Forest - purchased from the Forestry Commission Scotland in 2010 and 2015 - to deliver a range of benefits to the community of Kilfinan. 

Having been run by KCFC up until now, the Charity is now looking for a long-term tenant to take over the daily operation of the Sawmill.

New operators will be able to benefit from several commercial contract opportunities to re-purpose the wood and timber into residential developments as part of KCFC's charitable objectives and sell this commercially across the UK.

The new operator will also be able to benefit from purchasing timber from KCFC at a very competitive rate.

The site includes large open-plan steel framed shed, with a sheeted roof and timber sides to create shelter from the elements. There are several areas for machinery to be operated safely, as well as vast space to store the timber which supports the logistics.

There is also a drying-out shed, enabling cuts the opportunity to dry out before delivery or sale.

Other machinery available includes tractors and log cutters to support the day-to-day operations.

In line with its charitable aims, our client would welcome a commercial operator that can also invest in the local area and support the long-term charitable aims for Kilfinan Forest.

As part of the Forest, the sawmill is vast with an approximate area of 1,508 sq m (16,231 sq ft).

Kilfinan Sawmill is available to let for £1,000 per calendar month.
