Black Corries Estate is a 30,000 acre traditional sporting estate situated in the dramatic and beautiful area of Glencoe. The estate offers a wide range of sporting opportunities including walked-up grouse shooting over the estate pointers, trout fishing on the estate lochs, salmon and sea trout fishing on the nearby River Leven, red deer stalking, and walked-up shooting for snipe, ptarmigan shooting on the high ground and red deer stalking later on.
Black Corries Lodge has been recently renovated and now offers very comfortable accommodation for up to 12 guests. The lodge is situated in a remote and secluded position at the foothills of Glencoe as they meet the vastness of Rannoch Moor. It enjoys open views across a stunning landscape.
Black Corries Estate has over a dozen wild brown trout lochs, varying in size and providing good sport. Some lochs contain an abundance of smaller trout, which are ideal for keeping children interested, whereas others contain larger specimens of over a pound plus. Due to the locations of these, a reasonable level of fitness is required. A stocked rainbow trout pond sits below the lodge, containing fish of considerable size. Ideal for an evening cast.
Grouse shooting is solely done over the Estate pointers. A bag of 1-5 brace can be expected. Limited walked-up snipe shooting, duck flighting and ptarmigan is available upon request.
Black Corries is predominantly a hind forest so will start to shoot stags from August onwards with the main season in late September and October. During the earlier part of the season we can offer one or two stags per week along with the other sport available.
The lodge is the perfect place in which to relax after a day’s sport on the estate. Both the sitting room and dining room feature large open fires. There is a games room together with a full size billiard table for guests to use.
Housekeeping is included in the rental and cooks can be arranged if required.
There is wi-fi access throughout the building.

A wonderful all round sporting estate offering trout fishing, walked up grouse, snipe, duck flighting, ptarmigan and stalking.
Black Corries offers some of the most varied sport and other activities of any estate we have known over 25 years and is surpassed only by the enthusiasm of Davy (the headkeeper) and his team. It worked perfectly for our party of ages ranging from 15 to 70’s. We had plenty of firsts in the party, including having our pieces brought out to us by pony on a magical day walking up grouse.

Fishing Wild and idyllic in isolation, with over a dozen wild brown trout lochs varying in size. Some of the lochs contain an abundance of small trout, which is ideal for beginners and keeping children interested. The other lochs hold larger fish of over a pound. Due to the locations, to reach some of these, a reasonable level of fitness is required. Boats are situated on Loch Laidon and the Blackwater Reservoir. The 6 mile long Loch Laidon runs from Argyll deep into Perthshire ending at Rannoch Station. Alternatively, the 12 mile Blackwater is reached via a 10 mile land rover track north from Black Corries lodge, a bothy/lunch hut containing a good stove sits on its wildly remote shoreline.

Walked-up grouse shooting Grouse shooting is solely done over the Estate pointers. A bag of 1-5 brace can be expected. On occasion hill lunches can be taken out by Torridon, our Highland pony with loaded wicker panniers in the traditional manner.
Walked-up snipe shooting is available and is limited to one afternoon weekly during which guests may see a dozen or so. Duck Flighting for up to 6 guns is also available once a week. This is wild sport and therefore bags may vary. Limited ptarmigan shooting available upon request.
Deer stalking Black Corries is predominantly a hind forest, therefore most of the 35-40 stags shot annually are taken during the October rut, a period of which the owners will retain. However, during the earlier part of the season the estate will be able to offer stalking for one or two stags together with the other sport. Extraction is often by Highland pony.
Clay pigeon shooting can be arranged on the Estate, providing 4 different stands.
Local activities include; Golf, sea fishing, kayaking, indoor rock and ice climbing and skiing at Glencoe and Aonarch Mhor.
First of all I must ask you to pass on our thanks to the owners for letting us stay in the lodge and for Davy and Kirsty for looking after us. We had a fantastic time at the lodge. The lodge’s location was great and we had such good weather it was a truly amazing time. The lodge itself was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Just like home. I think Davy and Kirsty are doing an amazing job at the lodge and everything ran like clockwork and was well kept and looked after. Davy was very well informed and pointed us in the right direction in terms of the fishing and dog training areas. Everyone seems to have had a great week away and I managed to do 11 more munros which was good news. Only 28 to go! Thank you so much for your help as well. It is also much appreciated.

We had a lovely week. Lodge was great and very well equipped. Everything worked and comfortable. Absolute highlight was Davy, Kirsty and Bobby who are a delight and looked after us beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make the week active and enjoyable. Please do pass this on to the owners because they have some special people there.
