A RARELY available 7.49 acres parcel of land at Old Plean, in an established community just south of Plean in Stirlingshire, has been brought to market at offers over £350,000 by DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors.

Located within the village, off the main street, the open field site has secure boundaries and, subject to planning consents, may be suitable for development, equestrian or other use.

Historically, the field has been used for agricultural purposes, with a neighbouring area sold in 2007 for residential development. A right of access through the residential development site is included within the sale and there is additional access via a metal field gate to the south of Main Street.

Old Plean lies just south of the village of Plean, some 5 miles from Stirling and is well positioned for commuting to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. Local amenities include a library, medical centre, pharmacy, pub and convenience stores. The recently refurbished East Plean School provides nursery and primary schooling.

Within the immediate vicinity is the Plean Country Park, which is owned by Stirling Council and provides over 200 acres of woodland with way marked walks, an orienteering course, a 4km horse trail and a biodiversity trail.

There are also picnic areas and a children’s playground within the park which comes alive with seasonal flowers including snowdrops and daffodils in Spring, rhododendrons, orchids and wildflower meadows in Summer.

Ready access is at hand to the motorway network, connecting to Edinburgh and Glasgow, while a rail connection at Larbert Station is some 3.4miles distant.

Jennifer Campbell of DM Hall’s Rural Property team said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone seeking a land investment either for their own use or for development, subject to obtaining the required consents.

“Our client is seeking offers over £350,000 and anyone interested in finding our more should contact the rural team at DM Hall, rural@dmhall.co.uk or call 01786 833800.”

DM Hall has 23 offices across Scotland and in 2023 expanded into the North of England with the acquisition of Hyde Harrington, an established firm of Chartered Surveyors based in Carlisle and Kendal.
