We say...

Dalgheal House is part of the spectacularly beautiful Novar Estate – the breathtaking scenery has provided many a backdrop for outdoor fashion shoots, brochures, catalogues and advertisements. The Black Rock Gorge has been used as the backdrop for a scene in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”.

Fishing
Salmon, sea trout and trout fishing is available on the River Alness.
The Novar Fishings comprise about 6.6 miles of double-banked salmon fishing on the River Alness producing an average rod catch of 250 salmon & grilse per year.
The Novar Fishings are split into two sections: the upper beats comprising Beats 1 and 2; and the lower beats comprising Beats 3, 4, 5 and 6. The upper and lower beats are split by about 2.3 miles (3.7 km) of fishings controlled by Kildermorie and Ardross Castle estates. The average length of each beat is 1.1 miles (1.8 km), with typically 15 to 20 named pools per beat allowing for 4 rods. Both banks are included; however most of the fishing is from the southern (right) bank.
Fly fishing instruction and ghillies can be arranged on the estate.

Golf: The area is surrounded by golf courses including Royal Dornoch, Nairn and The Carnegie Club at Skibo. Tee times and transport can be arranged.
