The Portnellan Estate has been privately owned by the same family for well over 30 years and offers fantastic facilities including fresh run salmon and trout fishing on the estate lochs and river, mountain bikes with plenty of trails on and off road for all abilities, kayaks and rowing boats on the river and loch.
