North Chesthill Estate is a small family Estate run along traditional lines. Our core activities are sheep and cattle farming, red (and some roe deer) open hill stalking, salmon and trout fishing, which combine together throughout the year to provide a sustainable programme here in the highlands.
Conservation is at the very heart of the Estates beliefs. We provide support to two University led research projects associated with open hill deer research and salmon stock levels in the River Lyon.
The annual deer management programme is commencing on 1 September 2021 through to late October. The public are asked not to disturb the hills on the north side of the glen during this short period.
Steep slopes, tricky approaches, rough terrain and a true Scottish Highlands environment.
Over the the years the estate has planted about 100 hectares of native and other woodland.
The deer management programme here is very important to the livelihoods of local people and our employees.
Our deer management programme is being run from September – October. Please walk elsewhere over this short period allowing us to conduct our activity and business undisturbed. Thank you.
