Do you love beautiful scenery fresh air and awesome wildlife but lack the skills or knowledge base to get the shot you always dreamed off?

 

Our stalkers have the skills to get you in for that perfect photograph. 

Trained in some of the most rugged and remote land that the highlands have to offer!

Tell us what species you would most like to see and we will tailor the experience to you.

  

On Glencanisp and Drumrunie estates we have a huge variety of wildlife.

To list them all would take some serious brain wracking and time.

The most obvious are clearly our golden eagles. We have a number of breeding pairs resident on 44,000 acres of land managed by the Assynt Foundation.

We have the ever elusive fox. A whole different breed compared to the ones you find in the towns and cities. These are much more elusive and much more shy. 

We have a healthy population of badgers in close proximity to our lodge that was built in the 1800’s

Our most numerous and most iconic species is the red deer. We have a population of roughly 1200 animals and every year they put on epic displays of strength and stamina against a back drop of some of the most well-known and iconic mountains in the highlands of Scotland! namely the towering block of toridonian sand stone that is Suilven!
