About Suisgill

The primary enterprises on the estate are sporting, farming and tourism.

In terms of sport, Suisgill holds a one-sixth share of the salmon fishing on the highly-regarded River Helmsdale and many of our guests return year after year to cast a fly on this stunning river.  Red deer stalking is another important activity on Suisgill.

Suisgill is also home to 880 North Country Cheviot ewes and these account for the farming aspect of the estate.

There are two self-catering properties that we let out to visitors: our lodge Upper Suisgill, which sleeps 14, and our holiday cottage Balvallioch, which sleeps 4.

As well as the sporting activities, a big draw to the estate is the opportunity to pan for gold at Baile an Or, one of the sites of the 1869 Great Sutherland Gold Rush, which is located at the Kildonan Burn.  Other visitors enjoy walking or wildlife-spotting, and Suisgill is an excellent base for exploring Sutherland and Caithness, be that for the excellent golf courses and beaches, horse riding, mountain biking and surfing, or for the region’s many tourist attractions such as the Timespan Museum in Helmsdale or Dunrobin Castle at Dornoch.
