Two Outstanding Sporting Estates In The Highlands Go On Sale
Two of the most outstanding sporting estates located in the beautiful Wester Ross area of the Scottish Highlands, are currently on sale.
Set amongst some of the most dramatic and unspoilt landscape in the country, Tournaig Estate and Heights of Kinlochewe offer some of the finest country sports in the Highlands.
Heights of Kinlochewe is one of the country’s most splendid Highland stalking estates with a deer forest second to none. The estate is located above the north eastern end of the well known Loch Maree, which offers good salmon and sea trout fishing. There are also a variety of attractive hill lochs, including Loch Fada, offering additional trout fishing.
A successful woodland grant scheme is in place at Heights of Kinlochewe and the possibility of a considerable hydro scheme, off the River Abhain Gleann na Muice, which runs out of the estate’s Loch Fada, offers an exciting prospect.
The complementary estate of Tournaig, offers deer stalking and trout fishing on a number of attractive hill lochs with the largest trout caught in Loch Ghiuragarstida which forms the southern boundary of the estate. There is also a productive in-hand farming enterprise and established woodland schemes and the estate enjoys coastal frontage onto Loch Ewe, a lovely sea loch, offering a superb base from where to sail all round the west coast .
The estate centres around Tournaig House which is set in wonderful woodland gardens designed by Osgood Mackenzie, the third son of Sir Francis Mackenzie, the laird of Gairloch, famous for creating the Inverewe Gardens in the late 1800s.
John Bound, one of our partners, who specialises in the sale and purchase of estates, said: “It is exceptional that two truly fantastic estates have come to the market in such close proximity.
“We have experienced healthy demand for Highland estates this year from both domestic and foreign parties. Given the wealth of sport on offer each estate is highly desirable and sure to attract a lot of interest from those eager to become the laird of an outstanding Highland landholding.”
The estates are within easy reach of the west coast village of Gairloch which boasts delightful sandy beaches and rugged coves, and offers a good range of local amenities, whilst the city of Inverness, with its nearby airport offering regular flights to the south and parts of Europe, is less than an hour’s drive.
The guide price for Tournaig is £2.5 million and for Heights of Kinlochewe, £2.6 million.
