We care deeply about natural environment, the plants and animals and the awe-inspiring red deer at Letterewe and aim to manage the estate sustainability. We have installed a mini-hydro scheme that provides renewable energy for the main estate lodge, and have sponsored academic studies of our plants and animals.
CORPORATE & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Preserving the present for the future.
And what we leave behind
Our mini hydro scheme was installed on a fast flowing burn near Letterewe Lodge in 2017, with the rain water that floods from the hills after a downpour driving a turbine to generate electricity. The system can generate up to 100KWh. Letterewe staff are trained in operating the system and visitors are welcome to a tour of the installation.
We want to make a difference
Letterewe’s hydro scheme was a major investment in ‘green’ technology. The estate recycles as much as possible, and uses ponies to remove deer during the stalking season (we shoot stags from the end of August to October 20).
The estate has always known the importance of working with the local community and has close ties with local suppliers.
Letterewe, its deer herd and its infrastructure are managed carefully and to preserve the estate for future generations to enjoy.

A secluded lodge, perfect for fishing, walking and climbing, deep in the wilderness.
Carnmore is officially one of the remotest houses in Britain. A former farmhouse, it has no roads leading to it and is reached by estate track followed by a launch along Fionn Loch. Deep in the land of eagles and deer, it is lit in the evening by candles and storm lanterns.
