Glencanisp and Drumrunie estates offer Red Deer stalking in the most dramatic and breathtaking landscape Scotland has to offer. Providing the backdrop to your stalking adventure are the high tops of Suilven, Canisp, Cul Mor and Cul Beag all of which lie within the estate boundary.

It would not be unusual to find yourself scrambling along the sides of these imposing hills in pursuit of your quarry. You will be led by our very experienced, friendly and knowledgeable stalkers.

We are just outside  Lochinver, a small fishing village in the north west highlands of Scotland. 

Our annual cull is part of a management program and while we do take stalking clients we do not offer or encourage trophy hunting. we work hard to achieve a balance that benefits us and the environment.  

For any deer stalking inquiries please email the Ranger John directly on stalker@glencanisp-lodge.co.uk

We have some of the worlds best Brown Trout fishing available right here on the estate and in Assynt. A day ticket is £5 and can be bought from our office or local shops. Boats are available for hire as well. Get in contact with us to plan your next wild Scottish fishing trip.
