Achnacarry Sporting and Country Pursuits

Alec Macdonald, who has ben the resident deerstalker at Achnacarry for over 30 years, has teemed up with Simon Laird a stalking tenant on the estate, to set up a business called Achnacarry Sporting & Country Pursuits. Its aim is to take wildlife tours, fishing tours and sporting ventures around Lochiel Estate as well as let deerstalking and shooting parties. the Lochiel family are not financially involved in the projector nor do any management, but Donald Andrew Cameron is chairman of the company that runs it and it very much has the blessing of the family. In essence the family has "outsourced" the sporting enterprise on the state to Alec's company.

 

This should provide a perfect service for any Camerons visiting Lochaber, enabling them to take advantage of Alec's expertise and knowledge, giving people the chance to take in some of the estate and its hills and wildlife, in whatever way they like. Alec has use of "argocats" and other all terrain vehicles which will make parts of the estate accessible to people of varying levels of ability.

 

Some of you may remember Alec from past Clan Gatherings where he has always run the clay pigeon event. Alec is the fourth generation of his family to have been stalkers on the Lochiel Estate and he has built up a huge amount of knowledge not only about wildlife and the hills of the estate, but also its culture and history. His wife Catherine is a Cameron of Glen Nevis by birth, has lived at Achnacarry in the past and is a talented musician.
