Peter Pan estate owner buys another piece of the Highlands
Deer green place: East Glenquoich Estate
Private landowner, Richard Tuxford, has acquired 9,800-acres of prime fishing and shooting land which adjoins his Tomdoun Estate where Peter Pan creator J M Barrie is said to have holidayed with his children.
The East Glenquoich Estate estate in the West Highlands boasts 1,200 acres of woodland including ancient Caledonian pine, deer stalking rights and extensive fishing privileges.
By combining both sites, Mr Tuxford will be able to continue to offer clients fishing and shooting breaks with premium accommodation and on a much larger scale.
The acquisition, aided by £1.4m from Royal Bank of Scotland, will also create four jobs for the surrounding community, in addition to conservation work, positively impacting the area. There is permission for the land to be used for renewable energy generation.
He said: “Prior to purchasing Tomdoun, I had been visiting the area for a number of years on fishing and shooting breaks, which is a huge passion of mine. I have now acquired both of the estates with a clear vision in mind – to provide the best fishing and shooting experience in the area.”
The deal was advised and brokered by Royal Bank of Scotland Broker Development Manager, Steven Darbyshire and Independent Banking Professionals.
