Langwell Estate

Langwell is a magnificent Highland sporting estate located amidst the spectacular scenery of the North West Highlands of Scotland. To the south is Loch Broom, Assynt is a short distance to the north and Coigach is adjacent to the west.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with vast swathes of breath-taking mountains, lochs and coastlines and is considered to be one of Western Europe's last great wildernesses.

The Estate

Langwell extends to over 17,000 acres with a mixture of lowland pasture and rough hill ground. The land rises from a few feet above sea level to just over 1900 feet.

We have a small herd of free roaming Luing cows and about 250 North Country Cheviot sheep. There are healthy numbers of wild red deer with a small number of sika and roe and some grouse. Otters and pine martens can sometimes be seen.

A wide variety of birds can be seen, some are resident and others are seasonal visitors. We are particularly lucky to have resident eagles and other birds of prey such as buzzards and barn owls. Over 100 species of bird have been sighted on the Estate or wider local area.

A large number of native woodland trees have been planted at Langwell in recent years which will, as they grow, provide additional rich habitats for flora and fauna.

Staying at Langwell

There are two properties available for exclusive use hire. Langwell Lodge offers lovely accommodation for up to 14 guests and Glen Cottage sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children. They can be taken separately or together, with or without sport depending on the season.

They lie at the end of a single track no through road and offer a secluded location with wonderful views of Strathkanaird, Ben Mor Coigach and surrounding hills.

The Estate provides an ideal setting for holidays with family and friends. Traditional sporting activities include; red deer stalking, salmon fishing on the River Kanaird, brown trout fishing on the hill lochs and a small amount of walked up grouse shooting.

There is plenty of scope for hill walking across the unspoilt expanse of the Estate and beyond, with inspiring open vistas taking in the nearby mountains of Stac Pollaidh and Cul Beag to the west, the Assynt peaks to the north and mighty An Teallach to the south. Not to be missed is Loch a' Chroisg the largest loch on the Estate at over a mile long.

There is very little light pollution in the area making it an excellent location to observe the night sky. With the right conditions you may see satellites (including the International Space Station), planets, meteors and, if you are very lucky, the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Plus, of course, countless stars.
