|Macaulay Sporting Lodge is situated on family owned Macaulay Farm. The farm was owned by the Macaulay institute and used as a demonstrator for converting peat moor to arable land.
In the late 1920s around 50 acres of moorland was cultivated and successfully harvested crops included oats, rye, mashlum, hay, potatoes, cabbage and even celery.
Extensive tests were carried out using varying quantities of manure, shell sand, lime and fish waste
Currently the farm now run by the three brothers, has seen some diversification and is home to a paintball business some free range hens and pigs, and Macaulay College.
The lodge itself was built as a sporting lodge within easy walking distance of the River Creed. Fishing Permits, although not included in the rental, are available from the angling association.
The unassuming exterior camouflages a traditional lodge interior with Canadian brushed pine walls and fitted teak sideboards, kitchen and beds, made by ships carpenters using ships materials from the Watts shipping line.
