10,000 acres attach the Lodge plus 10,000 more 'next door'. All ground is available to be walked over or stalked in season. Deer stalking has taken place on Affric ground for centuries. About 400 wild red deer populate the Affric ground and about 70 beasts are culled each year to help hold the Highland herd in balance and all by arrangement with The Deer Group.
The deer are warey and stalking them can be hard work more often than not. Afterwards, deer carcasses enter the food chain the same way as does most other food. Also, the Estate is home to Game Bird Shooting with provision for pheasants, partridges and ducks.
Riding ponies are to hand and a hack around the loch represents a delightful 10 mile ride.
During the course of the past five years The Lodge and all of the Estate has been restored.
Great care has been taken to retain provenance whilst equiping with the usual modern facilities. The Lodge has five principle bedrooms with a further three perfectly comfortable ones as well. Downstairs includes a whisky room, sitting room, dining and reading rooms. Walls of the latter are painted with highland scenes by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-1873) celebrated artist of his day and whose bronze lions grace Trafalgar Square in London to this day.
...faces south and throughout the year and however chilly the weather might be outside, solar gain warms Stable Cottage and the Greenhouse which attaches it directly.
It's possible to pick salad and set out lunch all in one space - and all so deliciously fresh. Stable Cottage has 3 suited bedrooms.
