The 19,000 acre Kildermorie Estate lies in the heart of Ross-shire, renowned for its magnificent scenery and exciting mixed sporting. The Estate, remote and secluded, is only 30 miles by road from Inverness.
Stalking Kildermorie is a well-known deer forest, with the ground rising from 300 to 2,750 feet naturally forming two beats for red deer which can be stalked in any wind. Traditional garrons are used, where practicable, for bringing beasts off the hill to what is reputedly one of the best deer larders in Scotland. The Estate also offers exciting stalking for sika deer in the forested areas, plus roe deer in the rides and on the lawns of the ground it controls at Baledigle in Sutherland.
Fishing Fishing is available on Loch Morie and on the beats of the Glasa River, a spate river forming the upper watershed of the River Alness. Loch Morie, which is over two miles long, provides wild brown trout, arctic char and the occasional salmon and ferox trout. There are two boats (with engines) available on Loch Morie, plus fishing for wild brown trout on six other trout lochs/lochan, four of which have boats. Fishing is only from boat or bank (there is no wading). There is also fly fishing for salmon (4 rods) on a prime beat of the lower River Alness, (averaging 50 salmon per annum).
Shooting Grouse shooting over the Estate’s pointers can be supplemented by a maraud at ptarmigan on Carn Chuinneag for the more adventurous. Clay pigeon shooting is available and is popular with guests from complete novices to experienced guns looking to ‘get their eye in’.
