Unforgettable Experiences

Living the life of a Laird

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery – air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, this is what it is to be happy.”

Sylvia Plath

For many, the epitome of their Highlands stay is a day or two out on the hillsides in the company of an experienced Ghillie – often someone who has been doing this all of their working life, just as did their father and their father’s father before them. You will be in expert hands.

Learn about the land, natural processes, and why careful management of deer numbers is vital to the well-being of the ecosystem as a whole; an opportunity for you to play a part in our wider land management concept. We still bring the deer off the hills using traditional method of Highland Ponies on many of the estates, providing a quality of stalking which is difficult to match.

If you’d like to try something different and enjoy the epic landscapes, try one of our ‘pony picnics’ – a day out with our guides and Highland Ponies, exploring the hillsides, lochs and rivers. This is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the scenery, wildlife and the ponies at work. The delicious picnic awaiting you prepared by one of our chefs is worth the walk itself.

For those who are passionate about fishing, the offerings from rivers to coast across the whole of the Wildland holdings is truly exceptional with regards to both the variety of catch and the techniques available – it’s well worth giving a go. What better way to pass the time with family or friends – or why not go solo for some quiet time?

With so many of the Wildland estates providing quality and wide-ranging activities, combined with an offering of accommodation that is truly unique, we feel we are able to offer something for everyone, no matter what your individual taste.
