LANDOWNER Richard Tuxford has boosted his property portfolio with the
purchase of the 9,800-acre East Glenquoich Estate in the west Highlands.
The estate, which includes 1,200 acres of woodland, deer stalking and
fishing rights, borders Tomdoun Estate, also owned by Mr Tuxford, where
Peter Pan author JM Barrie holidayed with his children. Mr Tuxford said the
deal will allow him to offer fishing and shooting breaks on a larger scale
by combining the two estates.
Four jobs are now expected to be created at the estate, where planning
permission is in place to use the land for generating renewable energy. The
overall value of the acquisition, which was supported by £1.4 million of
funding from Royal Bank of Scotland, was not disclosed.
