Scotland’s most expensive sporting estate goes on sale for £25million

Scotland’s most expensive sporting estate is on the market for a record price of offers over £25million.

Described as the “ultimate utopia for the passionate sportsman,” the Tulchan Estate on Speyside boasts some of the best salmon fishing in Europe as well as exceptional stalking and shooting, and two grouse moors.

The price-tag for the 21,000-acre property is thought to make it the most expensive complete Scottish sporting estate to reach the market.

The average price of an estate is less than £5million, although Kinpurnie on Tayside was sold in lots for £29million.

Tulchan is on the edge of Cairngorms National Park, 40 miles south of Inverness, in an area famed for its whisky distilling and sporting pursuits.

At the core of the property are eight miles of double bank fishing on the Spey, which is regarded by anglers as one of the world’s greatest salmon rivers.

Past fishing guests have included royalty, ex-president Theodore Roosevelt and the railway financier William Vanderbilt.

Its accommodation ranges from a two-bedroom holiday cottage to an Edwardian shooting lodge that sleeps 26.

The property also has snipe and woodcock shooting, and five let farms. It produces its own beef and lamb from a commercial herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle and flock of blackface sheep.

Evelyn Channing of Savills said Tulchan was a “magnificent” property “from river to moor,” and that it was expected to attract global interest – with little sign that the Brexit vote had impacted the estate market.

The firm, joint agents for the sale with Davis and Bowring, said it was currently seeking Scottish sporting estates for potential buyers from home and abroad with a total of £830million to spend on the right property.

Tulchan offers some of the finest fly-fishing for salmon in Scotland.

The present lodge was built in 1906 by George McCorquodale. The tenancy reverted to the Earl of Seafield after his death in 1938. It was subsequently owned by a London-based financial institution and a Swiss businessman, and was bought in 1993 by the present owners, Midlands businessman Leon Litchfield and his wife Gillian, who set up Tulchan Sporting Estates Ltd. They have spent 23 years developing the estate.
