Loch Choire Estate
Loch Choire Estate is located in central Sutherland, about 100 miles north of Inverness. It extends to about 12,959 ha (32,021 acres) and is one of the finest sporting estates in the North of Scotland.
In October 2014, the Field magazine included Loch Choire in its ultimate list of "the 50 best sporting estates" in the UK on account of its breathtaking scenery, its "wild" sport and its staggering scale.
The estate runs from typical Caithness flow country in the east, to the sub-alpine summit of Ben Kilbreck on the western edge and encompasses some fifty square miles of Highland wilderness and 2 significant lochs - Loch a Bhealach (Lake of the Pass) at 1.5 miles long and Loch Choire (Lake of the Hollow) at just over 3 miles long.
The estate falls between Loch Naver to the north, Badanloch to the east, Ben Armine to the south and Loch Shin to the west. It encompasses one spectacular central glen running south-west to north-east, with Loch Choire the main feature at it's core.
Red Deer Stalking, Walked up Grouse, Salmon fishing and Wild Brown Trout Fishing are all available on the estate.
The site of the original lodge was carefully considered however the lodge was destroyed by fire in 2013. The remains have now been cleared and the site it once occupied offers the opportunity for a purchaser to build a new lodge to their own requirements and specification. Conceptual plans for a new lodge have been prepared by ANTA and are available from the selling agents. The estate also offers a Sporting Bothy, Deer Larder, Boat House, Stalker's House, School House, Bothy,
Allt a Laird and a range of outbuildings.
