Attadale Estate

Attadale is a 30,000 acre estate in the North West of Scotland. It stretches from the south shore of Loch Carron to Loch Monar, 15 miles to the east.

Attadale is ideally situated for touring the North West Highlands. To the North are Applecross, Loch Torridon, Loch Maree and the famous gardens of Inverewe. To the South is the magnificent scenery of Kintail with Eilean Donan Castle, Glenelg and, at Kyle of Lochalsh, the bridge over to Skye.

Ben Dronaig Bothy - Temporary Closure

Both Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and Scottish Government have over the last few years taken a keen interest in deer numbers and the need to ensure the health and welfare of the deer population, as well as the environment in which they live. To that end, each estate has an agreed culling target that must be adhered to.

In order for us to meet our 2019 culling target we have decided to temporarily close Ben Dronaig Bothy from 21st September until 21st October 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Tree felling

Tree felling will take place between March and September of 2019.  

Whilst the operational works are ongoing the estate will need to divert the public footpaths, to protect users and machine operators. 


The core path map highlights the diversion routes and the time periods they will be in place. 

Any queries please contact Louise Alexander on 01463 224343.

Walkers Carpark Closed

Please note that from 6am Wednesday 17th July until 8pm Monday 22nd July the walkers carpark will be closed. This is to facilitate the Lochcarron Highland Games Association who use the area in preparation for the games on Saturday 20th July 2019. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you but it is necessary to have that area available to the team setting up the ground.

Fishing at Attadale

We have for many years worked with others to improve the stocking of the Carron River, led by Bob Kindness this has proved to be a great success. Paul Merton has a programme called 'Paul Merton Secret Stations' and Attadale Railway station is featured in the first episode. See Paul visiting Attadale Gardens and also fishing on the Carron as well as helping Bob Kindness with the technical work he undertakes.

We had a Royal visit on 24th June where HRH, The Duke of Rothesay came to see the work being done at Attadale and other sites for the restocking of the river. Click on the pictures button to see then. More will be added in the next few days. All photographs by Peter Barr
