At Ballogie Estate our mix of open hillside terrain for red deer stalking, along with spruce and pine woodland for roe deer offer some of the most varied and challenging stalking in Scotland. Against the backdrop of the Cairngorm Mountains, catching sight of a covey of grouse while walking across dense, heather moorland, is a truly special, unique and rewarding experience. However, it is only one aspect of your enjoyment, as grouse shooting can be one of the most challenging, but rewarding of all field sports. We cater for guests who wish to take part in all types of field sports. If you prefer a shoot which has an element of the unexpected, then walked-up rough shooting could be perfect for you. Unlike stalking, pheasant, or grouse shooting which takes place at specific times of the year, rough shooting can be available all year round and consists mainly of rabbits and pigeons. Scotland is one of the finest salmon fishing destinations in Europe, and the River Dee in Aberdeenshire is a lure for fly fishing enthusiasts from all over the world. This majestic, fast flowing stretch of water set amongst the beauty of the Deeside Valley, sweeps along the northern edge of Ballogie, a family owned and carefully managed Estate in the heart of Royal Deeside. Generations of anglers have made the annual trip to Ballogie both for the fishing and the warm Scottish hospitality we offer. Why not join them?
