Il Fondemento D’Immobliari & Lord Shack of Blackwood invites you to visit our Loch Woods.
The woodland offers some good sporting opportunities, like trekking and wildlife stalking. An enchanting stream, the Cander Water, flows throughout the estate and some excellent picnicking spots can be found on its lovely banks. The Cander Water was once dammed to create a small loch for ice skating and fishing but the dam has since been breached. This area now forms an attractive wetland with a diverse range of plant species. There are also Victorian footpaths and a former lily pond inside the woodland.

Once you fall in love with Scotland there is no turning back. The striking colours of intense green, yellow and blue, the vastness, silence and magic. The lochs, glens, gorges, firths, mists, highlands and lowlands. The castles and ancient ruins, the spirit of centuries past, the echo of savage highland clan fights and drama, the haunting sound of bagpipes and the colourful tartans.
If you come to visit our piece of Scottish history to stroll along the Victorian paths in the footsteps of former lairds and barons, you will be able to breathe the fresh air, rejoice in the unspoilt beauty of the land which Lord Shack & fellow aristocrats are preserving for future generations and enjoy the tranquility and natural splendour of the woodland and its many species.
The Blackwood Estate is located in easy distance from both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The Blackwood House is unfortunately lost, but was situated in the following coordinates: 55.667835 N, 3.951352 W (according to the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland). This location is just at the outskirts of the wood where the road makes a 90 degrees turn to the left. The Blackwood Estate dovecot still exists in this location and has given name to a bungalow situated at the bend of the road.
And while you are visiting Lord Shack’s estate, why not enjoy some of the other attractions of the area?
Just along the northern boundaries of Loch Wood runs an ancient Roman road. If you are interested in the history of the Romans in Scotland, you could also visit the Motherwell Heritage Centre in Lanarkshire where they exhibit an audio-visual Technopolis display starting at the arrival of the Romans in the area and taking the visitor through the rise and fall of heavy industry to the present-day regeneration of the district.
The Craignethan Castle
Two miles west of the village of Crossford and 4.5 miles north-west of Lanark you will find the Craignethan Castle in a very picturesque setting overlooking the River Nethan.
The Royal Burgh of Lanark Museum was established in 1990 and houses a collection of items which are used to illustrate the ancient and varied history of the town.
Another attraction is the beautiful sandstone cotton mills of New Lanark, an official World Heritage Site.
Lanarkshire is also the county of Bothwell Castle, which is the largest and finest 13th century stone castle in Scotland, much fought over during the Wars of Independence. Bothwell castle also sports its own country golf club.
For overnight stays in Blackwood we suggest Hopehill B&B in the centre of Blackwood village or the good-value Dykecroft Farm B&B, situated just outside Blackwood in a walking distance from Loch Wood.
In addition to our global conservation concern, Il Fondemento D’Immobliari, & Lord Shack have many other interest. We invite you to visit and support them.
