Salmon & trout fishing, stalking, walked-up grouse, snipe & woodcock in season.
Snipe are available from October onwards and woodcock from November onwards. In recent years, annually as many as 120 woodcock are shot each season both in the forestry and on the moor on two annual shoots the grouse moors per season depending on count in the summer months.

Is an all round sporting estate ideal for family parties which can cater for beginners or experienced parties, and has much to offer people not interested in fishing or shooting. The highest mountain on the islands, Clisham, is nearby, a stiff climb but wonderful views. Wildlife abounds, eagles, peregrines, merlins, sea eagles, snowy owls, seals, otters and dolphins may all be spotted. The beaches of Lewis and Harris are a wonderful well-kept secret, and although they are an hour or so away, they are often empty and make a fantastic family outing.
Arrive evening or late afternoon at the lodge supper will be available and we will show you to your rooms, a drink to celebrate the coming shoot will be held in the evening and we will answer any questions the party has (we have an Italian speaking guide to assist us).
