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.
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!

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
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.
