FPDSavills have been instructed to market Rottal and Tarabuckle, two exceptional sporting estates in Glen Cova, at the foot of the Grampians.

The Rottal and Tarabuckle Estates straddle both sides of the spectacular Glen Clova, one of the picturesque Angus Glens at the foot of the Grampian Mountains.

The Earl of Airlie, a close friend of the Queen, has instructed the sale, and it is said that Prince Philip is among those lucky enough to have enjoyed the excellent shooting offered in the area.

Both estates are well known for their driven grouse moors, but also have red deer stalking, as well as sea trout and salmon fishing. The low ground has been driven for pheasant and partridge.

At around 8,000 acres, Rottal is the larger of the two estates, lying east of the South Esk River. Rottal Lodge, a five-reception room, eleven bedroom house is included as part of the estate, as are five estate houses, farmland, a large hill loch, and about 150 acres of woodland.

Tarabuckle is around 3,700 acres, and has a farmhouse and two further cottages, as well as about 220 acres of woodland.

Wester Eggie, an attractive four-bedroom cottage, is also for sale as a separate lot.

Glen Cova is situated about 30 miles from Dundee, where the airport runs a direct service to London City Airport. Edinburgh and Aberdeen Airports are both within two hours drive. The A90 dual carriageway can be joined at Forfar, some 16 miles to the south, linking into the motorway network at Perth.

The estates are available as a whole at offers over £4million, or in 3 separate lots. The Rottal and Tarabuckle estates are offered at offers over £3million and £800,000 respectively, and Wester Eggie is offered at offers over £200,000.
