Braeroy is an unspoiled Highland estate extending to some 23,500 acres in the Lochaber district. It is particularly noted for its spectacular scenery and quality stalking. The main buildings on the south west edge of the estate are nine miles from the village of Roy Bridge and 45 minutes from Fort William and are served by a metalled road. North west from the estate runs an unmetalled track that was one of General Wade’s military roads. This means that despite its remoteness, access to the estate is very good.
The estate rises from an altitude of 650′ to 3700′ on the summit of Creag Meagaidh. The famous geological feature of the Parallel Roads can be seen over much of Glenroy. There is an abundance of wildlife ranging from pine martens to golden eagles and peregrines and much of the glen is either National Nature Reserve or a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Besides stalking, the estate can offer guest’s salmon fishing on the River Roy and grouse shot over pointers.
Braeroy offers fantastic stalking in the traditional way with a Garron (pony) retrieving stags off one of the steeper beats. Single day’s and individual weeks stalking can be arranged without accommodation.
Braeroy is a renowned deer forest and offers red deer stalking for two rifles. The present policy is to shoot a limited number of stags in late August and then to divide the ground into two beats from September. The estate employs two stalkers and throughout September and October both take out rifles daily. Hind stalking is available for four weeks in November.
Ponies are used to recover the stags in the traditional way.
Grouse can be found over much of the estate and although somewhat neglected in recent times spectacular bags have been taken in the past. Estate policy has been to try to improve the shooting. The daily average over the last three years is seven brace and the shooting average has been about five shots per bird killed.
The Roy is an excellent spate river which rises in Loch Roy close to the eastern march of the estate (Loch Roy is only a short distance from Loch Spey, which is just over the march). The fishing rights extend for roughly thirteen miles of rapid run to the junction with the River Spean. It is divided into three beats.
Access to the Top beat is very good via the metalled access road. It is more difficult for the Forest beat which is served by an estate track.
The Roy is mainly a grilse river with a five year average of 35 fish. The heaviest fish caught in recent times was a 19 lb salmon. Fishing is by fly only on the whole river. The estate practices a catch and release policy.
