Aline Estate is located on the boundary of Lewis and Harris and covers 8000 acres of beautiful hills, moors and lochs including several miles of shoreline on Loch Langavat, one of the most prolific salmon fisheries in Scotland. The Lodge sits within a Scottish National Scenic Area at the head of Loch Seaforth and has spectacular views of the Sea Loch, Seaforth Island and Clisham, the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides.
In 2009, the 18th century lodge was completely refurbished (as were the boathouse, sauna complex, cottages and byre) with new bedrooms, bathrooms (4 of them ensuite), kitchen, gun room, sunroom, study, snooker room and dining room. With no road between the Lodge and the sea, most rooms enjoy magnificent views down Loch Seafortrareh to the Isle of Skye.
The Lodge has 5 double or twin bedrooms and 1 single bedromm and provides comfortable acccommodation for 11 (with 4 more bedrooms available in the nearby cottages).
Aline is not just an all round sporting estate; it is also a true wilderness experience where golden eagles, peregrines, merlins, sea eagles, snowy owls, puffins, divers, seals, otters, dolphins and whales all may be spotted, sometimes from the Lodge. The beaches of Lewis and Harris are rightly famous and the Estate has sea boats that enable tenants to explore, to picnic on Seaforth Island (part of the estate) and to fish.
There are 3 main systems on the Estate. Loch Langavat is the headwater of the Grimersta system and provides excellent boat and bank fishing for salmon and trout. The Estate also fishes one bank of the Langadale River at the head of the loch, which is prolific in spate conditions. The Tiorsdam system consists of a river and loch that enjoys runs of salmon and sea trout from early July. In addition, the picturesque Scaladale gets runs of salmon, again from early July.
There is trout fishing on numerous little hill lochs and weather permitting our sea boats can take up to 8 people fishing for mackerel, pollock or skate and putting down and pulling up the estate's prawn and crab pots.
