Urrard Estate lies on the east bank of the River Garry and extends to the summit of Ben Vrackie, close to Killiecrankie in the heart of the Highlands of Perthshire. It is an established mixed sporting estate and offers excellent shooting, stalking and fishing opportunities with breath-taking views in a dramatic landscape.
With only a short drive from Perth, and easily accessible from Edinburgh and Glasgow, it boasts being one of the most accessible Highland sporting estates.
The rolling landscape provides outstanding high bird pheasant and partridge shoots set against a backdrop of glorious scenery, with many vantage points, offering views throughout the central Highlands as far south – on a clear day – as the Southern Uplands.
The estate is also steeped in Scottish History as it incorporates the site of the Battle of Killiecrankie, one of the earliest Jacobite skirmishes where John Graham of Claverhouse (better known as ‘Bonnie Dundee’) led a Jacobite victory over the Royal forces of William the Third.
Urrard house is a historic and comfortable mansion and is ideal for large and small groups, with the capacity to sleep up to 18 people.
Urrard house stands in secluded grounds and is very conveniently situated close to Killiecrankie in the Highlands of Perthshire.
Urrard House is a traditional Scots-Jacobean country house steeped in Scottish history and is available on a self-catered basis, sleeping up to 18 with 9 available rooms (7 doubles and 2 twins). A cook can be easily arranged if a catered service is desired. The house dates back to 1831 and has been internally renovated and modernised in the past 15 years. This most notably includes the impressive conservatory that adjoins to the kitchen.
The house is set in beautiful landscaped grounds and is a lovely place to relax after an exciting day on the hill.
Dogs are welcome at Urrard only by prior agreement with the owner. Limited to a maximum of 3 dogs and there is a charge of £25 per dog additional cleaning fee. Owners must ensure their dogs are under control at all times and are responsible for cleaning up any faeces in the gardens and grounds. Dogs are not allowed on un-carpeted areas, and are not allowed upstairs, or on furniture. Any additional cleaning charges will be deducted from the Good Housekeeping Deposit.
Urrard House is quickly gaining a reputation for showing pheasants and partridges of exceptional quality. Signature named drives, such as ‘Hail Mary’ and ‘Druid’s’, have particular notoriety for being challenging and will test even the most experienced of guns. The shoots make full use of the natural topography and in addition to the high bird drives there are also exciting shooting opportunities for less experienced parties. Smaller mini-driven or rough days for pheasant and partridge can be arranged together with clay shooting and evening duck flighting.
The estate also offers exciting and challenging red and roe deer stalking amid spectacular rugged scenery to suit varying levels of fitness.
Salmon fishing on the River Garry is available, with half a mile ideally situated for a pre-breakfast or post dinner cast.
This offers an exciting opportunity to bag a MacNab.
Urrard house is only 4 miles from the Victorian spa town of Pitlochry, offering a range of services including independent shops, distilleries, lovely cafes and the highly regarded Festival Theatre. It is also located close to Blair Castle, the ancestral home of the Murray clan and then later the Duke of Atholl, with impressive gardens and historical interest.
Situated in Perthshire, Urrard offers amazing walking and hiking opportunities, with opportunities to climb Ben Vrackie situated just outside Pitlochry.
