Kilchoan Estate

Near Mallaig, The Highlands

Kilchoan Estate lies within the Knoydart Peninsula and has been with the same family since the early 1980s.

Often referred to as ‘the rough bounds’ or ‘the last wilderness’ as we are only accessible by boat or an arduous 20 mile walk from Kinloch-hourn.

Kilchoan Estate can offer red deer stag and hind stalking from the end of August through until the 14th February. The stalking is let out with stalker, ghillie and accommodation in Kilchoan Farmhouse.

We can also offer excellent fishing with sea trout, salmon or brown trout on our river or hill loch.

All of the old ruined buildings on the estate have been renovated over the years and now are available for self-catering holiday lets all year round.

We have a small fold of Highland Cattle which we walked into Knoydart over the old drovers' road back in July 2000.

Loch Dubhlochain
“Few things in fishing – or life – can match the thrill of a sea trout breaking through the surface to take a dapped fly dancing on a glittering loch. It is a quarter of a century since the great days of sea trout fishing on Scotland’s west coast.
I feared they had gone forever. But in one enchanted corner at least they have returned. In July, Philip and I spent two magical days on Loch an Dubh-lochain, with splendid sea trout and feisty brown trout coming eagerly to the wet fly
and the dap”
