Ardtornish Estate

Owned by the Raven Family, the Ardtornish estate in Lochaline on the West Coast of Scotland is a beautiful country estate where life is interlinked with the community of Lochaline. Through the vision and drive of the Raven family and management team the estate has become a successful commercial enterprise. Ardtornish produce their own lamb, beef and venison – available for sale in the estate Gift Shop & Information Centre. Several hydro schemes make power from their waterways, and country sports attract enthusiasts from around the globe to hunt, shoot and fish in the sparkling rivers, lochs and wild moorlands. At the heart of the estate is Ardtornish House and gardens, which with self-catering cottages attract many loyal long-standing visitors. The Ardtornish team is passionate about the local area, and committed to sustainability and development of the community and the Lochaline area – including by providing affordable housing and building plots at nearby Achabeag.Join me as I meet with Kenny McLaughlin, Tourism Manager as he introduces me to the Estate, it's history and the development of the kitchen garden, hydro and the farms.Should you wish to participate or sponsor a future episode please contact me directly at junecarroll@mac.com
