Ballogie Estate Field Sports events macnab

The Macnab

The Macnab is the Scottish Field Sport equivalent of the triathlon in athletics. We offer you the chance to shoot a stag, bag a brace of grouse and catch a salmon all in one day. The concept is based on John Buchan’s famous novel 'John Macnab' and this special event is available in late September and early October.

Ballogie Estate Field Sports events Treble

The Treble Taster

Even if you have little or no experience of field sports or salmon fishing you can still enjoy the thrill of hitting a target or casting a fly with The Treble Taster. 

This experience allows you to enjoy a clay pigeon lesson, rifle target shooting and fly rod casting for groups of 4 – 6 people with an experienced ghillie and gamekeeper.

This is available all year round.


There is nothing like warm Scottish hospitality and a decent place to lay your head at the end of a rewarding day’s exertion. When it comes to accommodation, you can choose the exclusive use of Ballogie House which can sleep up to 13 guests; our newly refurbished, seven bedroom Potarch Lodge – recently upgraded to the highest standard and suitable for up to 14 guests. Both properties are perfect for larger parties who like to socialise after a rewarding day’s stalking. If you are planning to holiday with a smaller group, you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of one of our beautiful holiday cottages – Greenlands, a lovely, stone-built, traditional farm steading conversion, which can accommodate between 4-6 people, and Ford Cottage, which can cater for up to 7 guests. It has a wonderful new extension which includes an open plan kitchen, wood burning stove, and floor to ceiling picture windows with stunning views over the river. All of our accommodation is finished to a very high standard and are ideal for a friends and family stalking break or group holiday. Our properties also provide the perfect base for exploring the many visitor attractions within the area including National Trust for Scotland castles, Craigievar - a fine example of Scottish Baronial architecture; Crathes - an enchanting 16th century tower house, and Drum – one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions.
