Gaick Estate is the most southern of all Wildland’s holdings. It holds a remote location, accessible currently either by an off-road vehicle over a private road from the north via Killiehuntly and across the lands of Glentromie, or you can hike in from the south near the Perthshire village of Blair Atholl following the old cattle droving road over the mountains and glens.
Gaick is a remarkable place with a sense of isolation and wilderness of seemingly endless hills. The hills give way to peatlands and bogs across the moors. The sense of remoteness is occasionally broken by the babbling of burns and rivers, and wooded areas such as in Glen Tromie. Contrastingly, Gaick Lodge which is set on a vast flat glacial landscape in an arena of striking high-topped mountains.
The land is steeped in history and tales of folklore; ‘The Avalanche’, ‘The Loss of Gaick’, and ‘The Curse of Walter Comyn’. If you’re lucky to visit, one of our Keepers will be happy to tell you these tales.
At present, Gaick operates as a popular site for outdoor activities with our guests from neighbouring Killiehuntly and Glenfeshie. Guests are invited to enjoy a range of outdoor days from traditional sporting, through to our more modern offerings such as ‘pony picnics’ and guided wildlife nature days.
