Pennyghael has multiple sporting opportunities including very exciting Red Deer stalking with a five-year average of 25 stags and 38 hinds. The estate runs a low-ground pheasant and partridge shoot which is combined with duck flighting and wonderful terrain for rough shooting for woodcock and snipe.
In addition, there are wild goats and soay sheep on the hill. The rivers Leidle and Beach provide some good trout and sea trout fishing. There is also some fun trout fishing on the hill lochs along with good shore and sea fishing on the doorstep.
