Stag Stalking

Stag hunting has been a favourite sport in Scotland for centuries.  Shooting parties have been enjoying the hospitality of the Althnaharra Hotel since the 1700’s right up until the present day. With a number of excellent estates situated close to the hotel we can provide you with some of the best stag shooting that Scotland has to offer.

Our season runs from the 1st July to the 20th October. Prices start from £400 + VAT per stag.

Stag Shooting for all Abilities

Our stag shooting breaks are suitable for both beginners and experienced stalkers. The surrounding countryside is the perfect setting for an exhilarating day of stag shooting. Take in the scenery of craggy hills, rustic woodlands and valley floors in focused pursuit of red deer stags led by an experienced local stalker. Get to grips with nature when you’re crouching down in long heather or hiding behind rocks and boulders waiting for the perfect shot.  Listen to the sound of victory when you hear the ponies hoofs coming to retrieve your stag .

The excellent scenery on one of our stag shoots can still be enjoyed by any non-shooters in your party. However it is worth bearing in mind that these types of shoots can run on for many hours and so a good pair of legs and a great enjoyment of the sport is usually required!

After a rewarding day head back to the Hotel for some real Scottish rest and relaxation. Treat yourself to a sumptuous meal in our a la carte restaurant. Follow this up with a drink or two in the hotel bar next to one of our crackling log fires. After a good night’s sleep in one of our luxury bedrooms, you and your party will be ready to head back out to the hills again the next morning!
