Langwell Lodge was extensively modernised in 2012, and now offers very comfortable accommodation for up 14 guests, plus accommodation for a cook.

Langwell Estate is set in some of the most stunning west coast scenery looking out over the Assynt mountains to the west. The estate is secluded and is situated just 15 minutes drive north of Ullapool where you have access to all facilities and beaches as well as a golf course. The coastline is spectacular as are the beaches or you can take advantage of sea trips to the Summer Isles and Handa Island – a very special bird sanctuary.

Langwell Estate extends to around 17,000 acres where you will have every opportunity to see red deer, eagles, and a variety of other wildlife. Salmon fishing is available on the River Kanaird, a typical west coast spate river and there are numerous hill lochs on the estate offering wild brown trout fishing.

Challenging red deer stalking is available for Langwell Lodge guests from mid/late August for one rifle. Langwell offers classic west coast stalking and the estate cull around 30 stags a year.

There are two beautiful gardens created around the burns that tumble down the hillside and a great variety of species of trees and plants which provide a delight of colour through the growing year.

Glen Cottage, which is a mile from the lodge is rented separately without sport.  The cottage sleeps 6 guests (4 adults and 2 children) and enjoys total seclusion overlooking the River Kannaird. Please note it is not possible to rent Glen Cottage in conjunction with Langwell Lodge.

Please note that mobile coverage is very limited.

We say...

Langwell Lodge has just been lovingly renovated and now provides extremely comfortable accommodation for up to 14 guests. An ideal location for a family sporting holiday with stalking, fishing and a chance of some walked-up grouse. There are some superb beaches to visit nearby and some breathtaking mountains to climb.

You say...

Langwell Lodge is very comfortable and the surrounding scenery in dramatic. The stalking is excellent, using traditional Garrons. The hill lochs are great fun, and there is a chance of a fish in the River Kannaird, with the right water. One year we had 3 fish in a day, followed by my son landing his first ever salmon – a 16lb fish on a 9ft trout rod!

Sporting

Fishing
The River Kanaird is a most attractive spate river with a number of excellent pools and runs and three impressive waterfalls. It can produce excellent sport in the right conditions with both salmon and sea trout.

There are also over 40 hill lochs throughout the estate providing brown trout fishing.

The fishing season on the River Kanaird runs to the 15th October, and trout fishing until the 6th October.

Sustainable Deer stalking
Langwell provides wonderful mixed terrain for challenging deer stalking and can be stalked in all winds. The private hill road, running through the heart of the estate, gives good access to most parts of the estate.

The ground has a generally southerly aspect providing excellent grazing and shelter. The land rises from just above sea level to some 1900 feet at the highest point. The stalking is challenging, exciting and hugely variable.

Stags are charged at £550.00 + VAT throughout the season
Hind stalking at £300.00 + VAT per day

Activities

Langwell Lodge is situated just three miles from the coast which offers beautiful beaches and coastline as well as an abundance of wildlife. The beautiful Summer Isles and Handa Island with its bird sanctuary are just a short boat ride away.  Private boats trips to the Summer Isles can be arranged from Achiltibuie.

The Summer Isles
The Summer Isles is a group of about 20 islands, rocks and skerries within the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area that sit off the Coigach peninsula. You can walk to the closest, Isle Ristol, with its long white sandy beach, on the lower tides; the furthest, Eilean a Chleirich (Priest Island), lies some 6 miles from shore. The island is a RSPB reserve and is home to seals, otters and seabirds, including over 2000 breeding pairs of storm petrels. Many of the islands also offer fresh grazing for local crofters to winter their sheep.

The largest, Tanera Mor is some 800 acres (300 ha) and is the only one of the islands permanently inhabited. Tanera Mor was the centre of a thriving herring fishing industry in the 18th century, and many centuries before that its sheltered harbour was home to Vikings. It was the Vikings who named the island Tanera, a name later given the Gaelic addition of Mor (‘big’) to distinguish it from its neighbour Tanera Beag (‘small’ Tanera).

A trip to the Summer Isles is a popular excursion for visitors to Achiltibuie, and a local cruise boat takes passengers on a magnificent trip around them during the summer months. The islands are great too if you have an appropriate boat or kayak – within easy reach, incredible rock formations, caves and beaches. Alternatively you can enjoy them as part of the panoramic view from the hills above Polbain.

Walking
There is wonderful hill walking on the north west including the iconic mountains of Stac Pollaidh,  Suilven and Canisp.
