stag in the highlands

The beautiful, remote glens and estates of Scotland are the perfect location to stalk the ‘Monarch of the Glen’ – the magnificent red deer. If you are a keen shooter, the Altnaharra Hotel provides one of the best shooting experiences in Scotland.

An Altnaharra shooting holiday in Scotland offers an abundance of stalking and shooting opportunities on the many vast estates in the surrounding area.

Scottish deer stalking is world renowned and we can organise some of the very best for you. The hotel has arrangements with a number of nearby estates which means that you can choose from a range of shooting holidays in Scotland such as game shooting and stalking.

No hunting trip is ever the same when you go deer stalking in Scotland. With opportunities to stalk several species, including some of the 300,000 spectacular red deer that are native to Scotland, the past time is as popular as it has ever been and we believe that Altnaharra has something special to offer our guests from all over the world.

Alternatively, we can arrange clay pigeon shooting on neighbouring estates for those who want to practice their aim or want a bit of fun.

The Altnaharra Hotel offers luxury facilities both within the hotel itself and at our self catering cottages which are located within the hotel grounds. We tailor your hunting experience to your needs, so if you’re looking to organise a hunting trip or shooting holiday then give us a call or send an email today and we can discuss your both your shooting and accommodation requirements in detail.
