Reay Forest, extending to some 96,000 acres is situated in north west Sutherland amongst some of the most imposing landscapes Europe has to offer with the well known peaks of Arkle, Ben Stack and the southern slopes of Foinaven all within the estate boundary. With its attentive stalkers, ghillies and housekeepers, Reay Forest is run as a traditional Highland sporting estate offering the highest levels of sport, accommodation and service to its guests.

The Old Laundry and Stack Lodge are situated within easy reach of the River Laxford and the principal lochs on the estate, Lochs Stack and More, all famed for their salmon and sea-trout fishing, offering comfortable accommodation and including the services of a housekeeper and cook. Both Lodges benefit from effective drying rooms, free highspeed broadband wireless internet connections and iPod docking stations, and have been refurbished for 2010.

Fishing on the River Laxford may be available by separate arrangement.
Six stalking beats, two of which are accessed by boat, provide quite possibly some of the finest stalking in north west Scotland amid spectacular rugged scenery to suit varying levels of fitness. For those seeking traditional Highland stalking at its finest, Highland ponies are used on some of the beats and argocats on others dependant upon the location. Five rifles are available to let with the sporting lodges.
Stalking is available for one rifle on it’s own deer forest to the east of the main estate, with a pony used for extraction.
