During this brand new two-night package you'll get a feel for foraging, sample deer stalking and try your hand at fly fishing. Each quest takes place in some of the most majestic scenery in the UK and is steeped in tradition and lore. Kinloch’s own Ghillie acts as your personal guide and driver, sharing his knowledge and providing great ‘craic’.
Kinloch’s breakfasts will set you up for the adventures ahead, while an incredible five course dinner is the reward at the other-end of a busy day. Open fires, charming, family heirloom-adorned drawing rooms and super king-size sumptuous beds and indulgent bathrooms offer the perfect end to a perfect day.
During April, May & June the package includes fly fishing for Wild Brown Trout and stalking for Roe Buck and costs £945 pp, July to October 15th the sport switches to Salmon and Red Stags and costs £1,150 pp.
After a relaxing lunch in Kinloch’s whisky bar, guests are met by their guide for an amble along the shore and through the native forest surrounding the hunting lodge both of which provide bountiful foraging. The crop depends on the season but with every step there are mouthwatering morsels to be uncovered; edible mushrooms, wild garlic and sorrel in the forest, and along the shoreline, delicious seaweeds, mussels, samphire and scurvy grass. Sustained by freshly picked nibbles and refreshing brews, like Bog Myrtle Tea, made on an open fire.
On returning to the hotel, it’s time to enjoy a seasonal foraged cocktail (or mocktail) before settling down to enjoy Marcello Tully’s classic cooking during a delicious five-course dinner.
After a delightful night’s rest, and setting off with a packed Kinloch breakfast, Kinloch’s guide drives to the stalking grounds for the break of a beautiful dawn. As the deer return to the shelter of the forest after roaming the hills overnight guests will be walking, watching and waiting for that clear shot – whether it’s with a rifle or a camera.
Then it’s off to an idyllic, peaceful fishing location, where the ghillie will provide casting tuition if required, and show you the best flies, most prolific spots and help with technique to give you the best chance of catching these wild wonders of the water
Roaring fires and another fine dinner welcome guests back to Kinloch for the second night of their stay and the next morning there’s time to enjoy Kinloch’s award-winning breakfast before heading home, having made memories of Kinloch Moments that will last a lifetime.
