Fishing
There is single bank salmon fishing on the River’s Ba (2 rods) and double bank fishing on the Forsa, all of which fish best in spate conditions. There is an ongoing program of improvements taking place on the Ba. The Glenforsa River is the largest and most productive river on the Isle of Mull. The entire salmon river system from the source to the mouth of the river where it flows into the Sound of Mull is available to guests. There are 50 named pools and there has been a lot of development on the river to improve the fishing.  In addition there is fishing by boat or from the bank on Loch Ba which produces salmon, sea trout and trout often on the dap and Loch Bhearnach for trout. All of the lochs have fishing huts from which to base your day. Sea fishing can also be arranged on one of the estate sea going boats.

Stalking
Benmore offers really challenging and exciting stalking. There are five stalking beats which are normally shot by two rifles per day but additional stalkers can be employed if guests require more parties on the hill. Approximately 50 stags are shot each year and these are generally all extracted by argo. 

There are a small number of woodcock and wildfowl which can be shot in season.

The lodge comprises reception hall, four principal public rooms including the newly built Ceilidh Hall with sprung dance floor, 12 bedrooms and 8 bath/shower rooms, family kitchen and additional staff accommodation if required.
