Aline Estate covers over 8,000 acres of wild rock strewn hills, moors and lochs on the south east coast of Lewis including Seaforth Island, with more than 1,500 acres of further shooting and stalking rights on North Harris.

Originally built in the 18th Century, Aline Lodge was upgraded 2010 whilst still retaining its traditional Highland character. The Lodge has magnificent views down Loch Seaforth to the Isle of Skye and is offered on a self catered basis with room to sleep 10 comfortably. Two cottages nearby can take 12 more if needed.

The Estate
Aline is an all-round sporting estate ideal for family parties which can cater for beginners or experienced parties, and has much to offer for those not interested in fishing or shooting. The highest mountain on the islands, Clisham, is nearby, a stiff climb but wonderful views.

The 16ft Arran sea boat is available to guests and included in the lodge rental, subject to conditions. The Arran is suitable for exploring Loch Seaforth, dropping prawn pots, and visiting Seaforth Island. Please note that sailing of the boat is subject to weather and availability.

Wildlife abounds at Aline including golden eagles, peregrines, merlins, sea eagles, snowy owls, puffins, divers, seals, otters, dolphins and whales all may be spotted, sometimes from the Lodge, sometimes from one of the sea boats. The beaches of Lewis and Harris are a wonderful well-kept secret, and they are often empty and make a fantastic family outing.

Cottages to rent
Tarbert Cottage sleeps 8 on a self catering basis
Seaforth Cottage sleeps 4 on a self catering basis

Lettings are Saturday to Saturday

 

We say...

Aline Lodge offers comfortable accommodation for up to 10 guests and enjoys wonderful views down Loch Seaforth, all the way to the Isle of Skye 25 miles away. With no road between the lodge and the sea, guests can enjoy one of the finest views in the Hebrides. The estate offers mixed sport including trout and salmon fishing, the chance of some walked-up grouse and stalking.

You say...

‘We had a wonderful time at Aline. It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful setting for a lodge, and we loved the variety of things to do from fishing, stalking and grouse over pointers to beach trips and surfing. A great family holiday’. Jack Pitman, Hertfordshire

Accommodation

Aline Lodge is an 18th century shooting lodge and has five double or twin bedrooms and five bathrooms plus a separate WC providing comfortable accommodation for 10 guests.  There is also a small single bedroom or cook’s bedroom. The newly-built sunroom gives fabulous views in three directions, while the billiards room and nearby sauna complex (with table tennis) offer great entertainment in the evening.

Seaforth Cottage possesses one of the finest views on the estate. Set on an isolated promontory overlooking Loch Seaforth, its view encompasses Mount Clisham, the tallest mountain in the Outer Hebrides, to the south and the Eishken hills to the north. It offers accommodation for four people, spread over one bedroom and one living room/kitchen which includes a pull-out sofa. There is also one full bath. Both rooms take full advantage of the surrounding scenery, and have a cosy, rustic feel. A veranda to the front of the cottage is perched just above the rocky shore.

Tarbert Cottage can accommodate up to 8 persons (3 bedrooms and pull out sofa in the sitting room; 2 bathrooms).

Set on the shore of Loch Seaforth, only a stone’s throw from the sea, the refurbished Clisham Cottage offers comfortable self catering accommodation for up to six people in 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, sitting room with pull out sofa, kitchen/dining room, 1 bathroom with overhead shower and a small drying room.

Sporting

Aline Estate offers salmon & trout fishing, stalking, walked-up grouse, snipe & woodcock in season. Sea trips by boat are also available (maximum 7 passengers) inside Loch Seaforth and guided walks through the Estate. Please note that sailing of the boat is subject to weather and availability.

The Fishing
There are three main systems on the estate. Loch Langavat, about 9 miles long, is the headwater of the Grimersta system and provides salmon, brown trout, ferox and arctic char from the estate boats. Ferox trout of over 10lbs have been caught and trout of up to 5lb’s are caught in the loch.

The Tiorsdam system consists of a small river and a loch which offers exciting salmon fishing from July with good water conditions.

The Scaladale is a picturesque river which can offer excellent salmon and sea trout fishing in spate conditions.

There are numerous hill lochs to fish for brown trout on the estate. Some offer a choice between a few large trout (up to 4lbs) or a plethora of small brown trout which are ideal for a family outing.  The sea boat can take up to 8 people sea fishing for mackerel, codling or skate and the chance of seeing seals, whales or dolphins makes these outings a memorable trip.

The Shooting
Walked-up grouse and snipe over pointers commences in September; driven woodcock are available from November onwards. Three day shooting weekends make an ideal winter break.  Snipe shooting is available from October onwards.  Snipe will generally be found by the burns, ponds and similar wet areas scattered throughout the moorland.  Wild duck flighting on various flight ponds can be exciting in the evening with good winds. The occasional geese fly over as well.

The Stalking
Red deer stalking is available on the estate with the main stalking period in September or October although earlier stags may be found in the forestry.

Aline 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 Boats
The 16ft Arran sea boat is available to guests and is included in the lodge rental. The Arran is suitable for exploring Loch Seaforth, dropping prawn pots, and visiting Seaforth Island. Please note that sailing of the boat is subject to weather and availability.

Wildlife abounds at Aline including golden eagles, peregrines, merlins, sea eagles, snowy owls, puffins, divers, seals, otters, dolphins and whales all may be spotted, sometimes from the Lodge, sometimes from one of the sea boats. 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.
