Gaick Lodge was built around 1820 by the Duke of Gordon and is one of Scotland's oldest and most original sporting lodges.
Set amidst the 18,000 acre Gaick Estate, and at a height of 1,500 feet above sea level, twelve miles up the private Glen Tromie road, this is a remote and totally unspoiled location and was the inspiration for Sir Edwin Landseer, with a mural attributable to him on the dining room wall. The Lodge, with magnificent views of the surrounding hills, retains much of it's original character, such as pine panelling and flagstone floors

In recent years, the estate has been able to offer a full programme of walked up shooting with some driven shooting available.
For 2010, from 12th August, both walked up and driven shooting is available with accommodation, and fishing and stalking as appropriate.
The estate employs two stalkers, and the estate lends itself to fielding two parties each day. From early September up to 6 stags are available each week in conjunction with grouse shooting and fishing. From mid-September onwards up to 12 stags are available each week. From 21st October, the lodge is available for hind stalking parties. Some individual days may also be available.
The estate is able to offer wild brown trout and arctic char fishing on three estate lochs, one of which has a boat. Good fishing can also be had on the Upper River Tromie, with the chance of an occasional salmon later in the season.
