The Glenogil Estate is now regarded as one of the finest sporting Estate’s in Scotland. The Estate, which boasts superb scenery, provides a wonderful backdrop for superb shooting which will satisfy even the most demanding of sportsmen and women.
Extending to over 23,000 acres with topography which ranges from productive farmland rising to the top of the moor (the highest point on the estate at 2,030 feet), the scale of this Estate is difficult to comprehend.
The Grouse moor extends to over 17,000 acres and is made up of six separate beats. The Estate’s carefully planned policy of rejuvenation has placed Glenogil as one of the most prestigious Grouse Moors in Scotland, capable of putting on shoot days to match any throughout the UK. There are a few moors in Scotland which can truthfully claim to be able to offer Grouse shooting on the same scale as the best moors in the North of England, but Glenogil is very much one of those Scottish moors that can. The moor also benefits from being extremely well roaded, allowing excellent access to Guns throughout their stay, with the undulating nature of the hills providing for consistently high-quality shooting.
Glenogil not only boasts a first-class grouse moor, but also benefits from a top quality pheasant and partridge shoot which is predominantly based around the moorland edge. This shoot consistently challenges guns, with a variety of birds being presented from all heights and angles.
Accommodation is available for teams with four properties on the Estate which can be used by guests when shooting. The largest is Redheaugh Lodge, strategically situated at the heart of the Estate. Redheaugh Lodge is of an unusual Victorian design and it was completely rebuilt in 2010 and now provides stunning luxuriously appointed accommodation in nine double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The Lodge is one of the finest we have come across and makes an ideal base for a party shooting at Glenogil or indeed when shooting on nearby Estates. Additionally, there is a two bedroom cottage which can be used for overflow accommodation to the main Lodge.
The Bothy situated nearby has also recently been refurbished to a very high standard (very unlike any other Bothy we know!), and has four twin bedrooms and a large vaulted open plan living area.
The Mochrie is a former farm steading, completely rebuilt in 2009 and provides two separate but adjacent cottages, and is also situated in a stunning location in the heart of the Estate, but is perhaps rather more remote than the other houses. The Mochrie has wonderful views across to open moorland and is ideal for a smaller party or for those guests truly wanting to be in the middle of nowhere!
