Scotland’s most expensive sporting estate has been put on the market for what is thought to be a record-breaking price. The owners are seeking offers over £25 million (roughly $32.5 million).
The 21,000-acre Tulchan estate, which lies on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park in the Scottish Highlands, comes with a whole host of accommodation options, from a cosy two-bedroom holiday cottage to Tulchan Lodge, an Edwardian shooting lodge that sleeps 26 and has, in the past, hosted politicians, princes and kings.
Running through the property are eight miles of double bank fishing on the Spey, which is thought to offer some of the best salmon fishing in Europe, and according to The Telegraph, its famous fishing guests include King Edward V11, King George V, King George V1, Theodore Roosevelt, the railway financier William Vanderbilt and King Leopold of Belgium.
There is plenty of space for stalking and shooting, and two grouse moors – just in time for grouse season.
Plus the property has five farms, and produces its own beef and lamb from a herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle and a flock of blackface sheep, with fruit and vegetables from the extensive kitchen garden. [Telegraph]
