Invercassley Estate

Situated between the lowland coastal expanses of Balnagown Estate and the more rugged wilderness of Duchally Estate to the north, Invercassley has a landscape of wooded glens and heather moorland, with the beautiful River Oykel lowing close to its southern boundary and the River Cassley to its eastern boundary.

Invercassley Estate extends to 16,000 acres, and across some of the most stunning scenery in Sutherland. The properties on the estate provide an excellent base to explore the Northern Highlands, with easy road routes to the west, north and east coasts. But of course, many of our guests choose to spend their time on or close to the estate and enjoy all it has to offer.


Salmon and trout fishing is available on the upper River Cassley, a spate river, with the estate’s stalkers able to advise on the more productive pools. Occasionally, there may be some availability to fish on the nearby River Oykel.


Deer stalking, both Red Deer and Sika Deer, takes place at Invercassley and our nearby Duchally Estate and is some of the most exceptional in Scotland. We are careful to limit the impact of our deer management and any participation is conducted as part of an organised, targeted and sustainable cull. The estate stalkers are the perfect hosts, with a full and detailed knowledge of the local terrain and deer. They will be your trusted guides, and no matter what your ability levels they will ensure you have an unforgettable experience.

The stalking season is as follows: 1st July to 20th October for Stags, 21st October to 15th February for Hinds.

A possible Macnab

Not every highland estate can offer the possibility of a Macnab – a salmon caught on the fly, a stag and a brace of grouse  – but at Invercassley we can. Of course we can’t guarantee it, but if anyone can help make it happen our head stalker can.


The estate has an extensive network of tracks which extend well into its interior, giving excellent access to remote areas, whilst still being relatively easy to reach. Walking on the estate is a joy at any time of year, with the changing seasons always providing a new vista and mood.

Bird watching and nature

With so much undisturbed and very varied habitat, Invercassley Estate provides the nature lover with a very special experience. There is a wealth of bird species in the area such as Osprey, Golden Eagle, Hen Harrier, Crossbill, Ptarmigan and Black Grouse, with mammals such as Pine Martin and Red Deer also present.

Clay pigeon shooting

We’re always pleased to arrange a clay shoot for you and your family, friends or colleagues, though there is a supplementary charge. The shoot is always properly and safely organised with full supervision for those less experienced.

Other pursuits and attractions in easy reach of Invercassley Estate

Although once on the estate it may seem very wild and remote, larger towns such as Tain and Dornoch are within easy reach and both have superb links golf courses. Also easily accessible, is the coastal village of Golspie which also has a links golf course plus Dunrobin Castle which has impressive gardens and falconry displays.

Facilities close by

Two of the estate’s properties are close to the village of Rosehall, with the third being in the village itself. Rosehall has a post office, plus a hotel and bar which serves evening meals. Just a few miles further on from Rosehall are the larger villages of Lairg and Bonar Bridge, which both have a wider range of shops for all daily needs, places to eat out and other facilities.
