We offer an excellent stalking experience on Benmore and Glenforsa, surrounded by the spectacular scenery of Mull and its neighbouring islands.


Records show Benmore was first afforested around 1896 when no fewer than one hundred and sixteen stags and hinds were brought in from England, Glenartney and Inverary with wonderful effect. The deer forest landscape varies considerably on Benmore with native woodlands alongside Loch Ba and within Glen Clachaig, to the towering rugged and scree covered summits above. These peaks are divided by the characteristic Clachaig and Cannel Glens, and innumerable deep and sheltered corries providing areas of sanctuary and solitude for the deer. There are two stalking beats, namely home beat and far side accommodating up to two groups on a given day.

Glenforsa was afforested on several occasions between 1870 and 1910 to improve the strain of the deer stock. Wild forest blood was likely imported from Glenartney, alongside stags from Windsor, Powerscourt and Stoke Parks. The landscape is dominated by the wide Forsa Glen with River Forsa running through the centre and the unmistakable Beinn Talaidh in the distance. The Glen is characterised by planted woodland blocks providing a natural wintering ground for many stags.

Traditional methods of stalking red deer in Scotland have remained unchanged for centuries and they continue to this day. Our experienced stalkers, Donald Bisset and Andrew Gorthy, will accompany and guide you on the hill, offering expert advice when required. Recovering the deer carcass is often by dragging and argocat, and afterwards they are taken to our own refrigerated larder for processing. Guests are welcome to use an estate rifle.

We manage the wild red deer and strive to maintain a healthy, productive population by promoting high-quality stags through selective culling.
