Strocherie Farm, or in Gaelic, "Strath Airiahe" meaning
"The Large House in the Valley Surrounded by Pasture Lands", is a fantastic sprawling rural, unspoilt country estate.
Nestling in 412 acres of working Scottish farmland, the impressive Farm House dates back to 1696, overseeing the traditional farm outbuildings.
"The Royal Rooms" within the House, were once used by the Duke of Fife as he toured his vast estates and have retained the original features, such as incredibly ornate ceilings and amazing marble fireplaces.
Surrounded in gorgeous woodland, rich in indigenous wildlife, and completely unspoilt, the beautifully maintained estate offers fantastical walks, explorations and brilliant sporting opportunities.
The Estate is well known for it's sporting pursuits.
Deer, Pheasants, Partridge, Snipe (and Rainbow Trout!) are reared on the healthy agricultural lands and waters, being fed and fittened throughout the year.
Our working dogs are home bred, raised and trained, with an ear and an eye for our own exceptionally well managed shoot days, at which driven pheasants, partridge and snipe are presented in a sporting manner.
Our Roe Deer present the shoot enthusiast with an additional challenge, and offer a great sporting day. (Resident beaters and "old hands" can advise where required)
In addition, the lake offers a well stocked opportunity for the keen angler, where battle can be done against our fiesty Rainbow Trout!
Our Trout are as naturally fed as possible, with 80% of their diet coming from live feed, rather than pellets. Strocherie does not use antibiotics as a growth stimulant, and our Trout develop good size from natural exercise. As such they are firm, tasty and on the fly to catch!
As well as breeding, producing and showing Championship Shetland ponies, we specialise in breeding ewes and suckler cows, maintain cereal crops, (across which our 200 plus pheasants merrily wander!) and fastidiously restore vintage tractors.
(We can advise you of the local Agricultural Show days, where all manner of everything representing Scottish Farming can be seen)
Horse Riding and Pony Trekking can be arranged where available too, so there's no excuse for not "getting rural"!
