Shooting Gazette - - This Month -

No mat­ter how rosy life may seem, there are al­ways times when one wishes for noth­ing more than an es­cape from the mun­dane. With the in­creas­ingly in­va­sive creep of tech­nol­ogy into our ev­ery wak­ing mo­ment, an es­cape to the wilder­ness and the chance to be truly sur­rounded by na­ture seems might­ily tempt­ing. The Fearna Lodge Es­tate, then, may just be the ul­ti­mate an­ti­dote to mod­ern life.

Ex­tend­ing to around 735 acres, this High­land es­tate of­fers the best of Scot­tish sport, in a dis­tinctly man­age­able pack­age. Just a few min­utes’ drive from one of the most spec­tac­u­lar and un­spoilt coast­lines in Scot­land, the es­tate fea­tures an ex­cel­lent mod­ern lodge of­fer­ing

360¡ views of the stun­ning Suther­land scenery.

The rel­a­tively low al­ti­tude of the es­tate, along with small pock­ets of good-qual­ity graz­ing, means the land plays host to a small herd of res­i­dent hinds. The es­tate is typ­i­cally lightly stalked; how­ever, the es­tate can of­fer stalk­ing for up to five red deer stags a year. There is some walked-up rough shoot­ing for wood­cock and snipe, with the pos­si­bil­ity of grouse, and the many hill lochs al­low for en­joy­able brown trout fish­ing. With lit­tle ef­fort these could also be used as duck flight­ing ponds, and there is also some mod­est spate sal­mon fish­ing to be had on a trib­u­tary of the In­ver.

The cur­rent own­ers have pro­posed the plant­ing of 300 acres of na­tive wood­land, which would en­hance the sport­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties on the es­tate. Those look­ing to ex­pand their sport­ing hori­zons may be in­ter­ested in ad­di­tional land, avail­able by sep­a­rate ne­go­ti­a­tion.

On the mar­ket for of­fers over £900,000, this beau­ti­ful par­cel of wilder­ness is sure to be snapped up quickly.
