There are two Munros in Glen Clova and quite a number of others nearby. Golf is available at Carnoustie (40 minutes’ drive) or St Andrews (1 hour drive). East coast beaches, such as lovely Lunan Bay, are only 40 minutes away.
Rottal Lodge is a wonderful property and offers fantastic mixed sporting weeks including walked-up grouse, stalking, mixed walked-up and driven shooting, salmon and trout fishing.
Another wonderful week at Rottal and we are looking forward to returning again next year. Mr and Mrs Taylor, England

Rottal Estate is run traditionally which means they do all their fishing, shooting and stalking in-hand to ensure the protection of the delicate Highland ecosystem. This provides visitors with some unique sporting activities.
If you are interesting in some fishing during your stay, you can experience the rush of Salmon fishing along 3.5 miles of the South Esk river or enjoy a more peaceful pace at the trout loch stocked with both brown and rainbow trout. You’ll also find wild brown trout fishing at Loch Wharral – a 40 acre loch situated about 2000 ft above sea level with bothy.
The estate is home to a variety of wildlife including Duck (Mallard and Teal), Partridge, Pheasant, Grouse, Rabbit, Woodcock and Snipe; which makes it an ideal location for shooting. Planned and guided shooting days can be arranged to try help you find exactly what you are looking for, or take you out on rough days to experience a bit of it all.
Finally, tailored stalking experiences can be provided for visitors. The estate is home to Red Deer who roam across our varied and rugged terrain, making the stalking experience a unique day out in stunning surroundings.
