Description

This raw untouched landscape is truly magnificent and a real Highland haven.

The land extends to approximately 735 acres and offers stalking, walked up shooting, duck flighting and fishing. Spend the day exploring the craggy outcrops, cast a fly on one of the many hill lochs or simply enjoy a picnic with a view. Fearna has something for everyone and is a hidden gem.

Free of modern intrusions Fearna is a fine example of a wilderness property with contemporary comforts. The land is typical of the area with grassy knolls, and undulating moorland interspersed with hill lochs. The rocky landscape is dramatic and benefits from patches of limestone bedrock which provide occasional oases of fertile soil.

This compact Highland estate is perfect for those looking for a manageable estate and it is just a few minutes’ drive of one of the most spectacular and unspoilt stretches of coastline in Scotland. Excellent holiday rental potential and a proposed woodland planting scheme.

Sitting in an elevated, private position overlooking one of the principal estate lochs the modern lodge is perfectly situated to enjoy the dramatic landscape. Built in 2012 the lodge benefits from 360 degree views and extends to approximately 3,600 sq.ft. The lodge offers spacious open plan living with floor to ceiling glass walls to make the most of the beautiful views.

The Estate is set within a National Scenic Area and also lies within the North West Highland Geopark. Due to these designations it highly unlikely that there will ever be any man made visual intrusions of any kind.

Sporting

Stalking

Fearna is compact but due to relatively low altitude and pockets of good quality grazing it has a small herd of resident hinds. The estate has typically been lightly stalked but hind numbers have increased and accordingly the estate can offer stalking for up to 3-4 Red deer stags a year. The land can be accessed by a 6 wheel ATV vehicle or more traditionally on foot.

Fishing

There is enjoyable wild brown trout fishing on any of the many hill lochs with some modest spate salmon fishing on a tributary of the Inver.

Shooting

There is some walked up rough shooting for woodcock and snipe and the possibility of a grouse. With little effort or expenditure the lochs could be used as duck flighting ponds.
