HIGH­LAND STALK­ING AND SALMON

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Properties For Sale -

When the Led­gowan Es­tate in the western High­lands was put on the mar­ket by the Rug­gles-brice fam­ily seven years ago, the ask­ing price was £2.5 mil­lion. It is now for sale for £4.5 mil­lion, re­flect­ing a sub­stan­tial cap­i­tal in­vest­ment in al­most every as­pect of its in­fra­struc­ture, from re-mod­el­ling the Lodge to build­ing a net­work of hill roads to pro­vide eas­ier access to all parts of the es­tate, sig­nif­i­cantly ex­pand­ing the scope of the stalk­ing. Si­t­u­ated at Ach­nasheen in Wester Ross, nine miles from Kin­lochewe and 41 from In­ver­ness, Led­gowan ex­tends to more than 11,000 acres. Led­gowan Lodge, which dates from the 19th cen­tury, has been renovated and fully mod­ernised to pro­vide four re­cep­tion rooms, a pan­elled games room, and six bed­rooms, all with bath or shower rooms en­suite. There are also Stalker’s Lodge and Shep­herd’s Cot­tage, plus es­tate build­ings and wood­lands. The es­tate is well known for its stalk­ing, with a five-year average of 38 stags and 36 hinds/calves. There are also grouse shoot­ing over point­ers, rough shoot­ing for mixed game, and fish­ing for brown trout, ferox and pike on a num­ber of lochs, with the op­por­tu­nity for a salmon on the River Bran.
