Reay Forest Estate

Reay Forest extends to 96,000 acres of stunning wilderness including the peaks of Arkle, Ben Stack and the southern slopes of Foinaven. It is a wild paradise and this regal corner of North West Scotland has few equals. The Estate is run in a traditional Highland fashion and the team of highly knowledgeable and personable staff operate to the very highest standards and work hard to constantly exceed expectations. 


Lettings at Reay Forest are by the week and there are 2 lodges, the Old Laundry and Stack, both lodges provide extremely comfortable, tastefully furnished accommodation and lettings include the services of an accomplished housekeeper and cook. The properties benefit from effective drying rooms and Broadband Wireless Internet connections.

The Old Laundry in Achfary, sleeps 9 and Stack Lodge, on the banks of the Laxford and with its views over Loch Stack, sleeps 13. Please be in touch for further information.

Reay Forest has six stalking beats, two of which are accessed by boat, and they offer some of the finest stalking in Scotland amid spectacular rugged scenery. The estate stalkers are masters of their craft and a day in their company is an education in the art of deer management and in the landscape that they call their office. Reay Forest use Highland ponies on some of the stalking beats and argocats on others and ultimately the terrain determines the method of extraction.  Five rifles can be put on a daily basis and different levels of fitness can be accommodated. Stalking weeks are highly prized but in most years the owners release personal weeks and consequently please be in touch to be placed on a waiting list.

Most Reay weeks are let with salmon fishing for 2 rods on the river Laxford together with fishing on Lochs Stack and More together with endless trout fishing opportunities. The Laxford is a beautiful, and in the right conditions, productive highland spate river. There are few more beautiful places to cast a fly.


Sea fishing or sightseeing trips can be arranged in the estate’s own high specification RIB or sea boats at extra cost, or for those just wanting exercise there are several Munros to climb or deserted beaches to stroll along all within easy driving distance of the estate lodges.
