Rhidorroch Estate extends to around 10,000 acres and offers wonderful mixed sporting opportunities including salmon fishing, wild brown trout fishing, red and sika deer stalking and informal walked-up shooting.
The sport on offer gives the rare opportunity to obtain the famously difficult “MacNab”. The estate takes in some of the most dramatic west coast scenery.
The Victorian house is steeped in character with all the features of a traditional sporting lodge whilst maintaining a homely, warm atmosphere. There are also two other holiday cottages available to let on the estate.
Only a 4-mile (10 minute) drive along the Estate’s private road and you’re in the local fishing village of Ullapool. Pubs, restaurants, leisure centre and more can be found here in this lively welcoming village.
Ideal for family holidays and sporting groups.
