Ballogie Estate Enterprises is a family run land management business established in 1850 covering 6,000 acres on Deeside, Aberdeenshire.
The key land based enterprises are livestock farming, cropping, forestry and field sports, which include a important salmon fishing operation on 3.5 miles of the river Dee. In addition there is a large portfolio of let property, both residential, commercial and agricultural, including three farms, a shop, hotel, village hall and an equestrian centre.
Ballogie offers beautiful and secluded accommodation and some of the finest field sports activities in Scotland including salmon fishing and stalking along with pheasant and rough shooting.
At Ballogie Estate our mix of open hillside terrain for red deer stalking, along with spruce and pine woodland for roe deer offer some of the most varied and challenging stalking in Scotland.
Experience the warmest Scottish hospitality against the rugged backdrop of the Cairngorm Mountains, when you book a short break at Ballogie Estate. Guests with a passion for field sports have been coming to Ballogie regularly for many years – a tradition which has been instilled into the second, and even third, generation of some of the families, who enjoy everything that Royal Deeside has to offer. The Dee season runs from 1st February to 15th October and guests can take advantage of prime fly fishing for both salmon and trout. Ballogie Estate also welcomes guests at various times throughout the year, who wish to enjoy our other field sports such as stalking or grouse, pheasant and rough shooting. Our ghillies and other professional staff are always on hand to offer their expert knowledge and guidance if required to help you get the most from your stay. If you are new to field sports, we offer beginner sessions such as The Treble Taster, which gives those of limited or no experience a lesson in clay pigeon shooting; rifle target shooting, and fly casting for groups of between 4-6 people at a time – the perfect corporate day out.
