Item specifics

Private / Estate agent:


Property Type:



Bathgate, Scotland

Plot Area (m²):

5.9 Acres


This is a lake I have for sale near Bathgate in Scotland. It is approximately 3 acres in area and to the north and included in the sale, is a further 3 acres of very steep woodland going down into a quarry. It was until 30 years ago, a reservoir, but has since been abandoned and was sold off by the Scottish Water Authorities. The whole area is fenced in with a post and barbed wire fence. It is a very attractive and peaceful area with lots of wildlife including badgers, kite and buzzards. It is land locked and to reach it one has to cross the adjacent farmland. This is allowed under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 which establishes access rights across almost all open land including farmland, provided these are exercised in a responsible manner.

There is no vehicular access. Consequently one has to walk about ¾ mile, but the views are worth it. The farmer of the adjacent land, is a decent bloke and providing you respect his animals, gates etc. it is no problem.  I have recently tried out an inflatable boat on the lake and this is marvellous for exploring the lake. Under the Land Reform Act (Scotland) Act 2003 one is allowed to walk, or cycle to over the surrounding land and even camp there. I suspect there may be fish in the lake, but I have never fished it.

Why am I selling it? Simple I live in the south of England and I am 72 years of and can no longer find the energy or the money, to go there and enjoy it.


Boat included. Call me on 07974 414131 or
