Make your hunting holiday in Scotland a great success. We help organise shooting in many surrounding Highland Estates - we are spoilt for choice. With some of the best deer stalking and challenging shooting available in the country. And guidance and advice from experienced Gamekeepers and Stalkers.

Grouse shooting in Scotland is very special, and parties come to Speyside every August and September to enjoy this unique sport in our superb surroundings. Bookings can be made either for walked-up shooting or for driven birds, but need to be made about 9 months in advance.

Pheasant and rough shooting can also be arranged for November to the end of January. This is very popular with guests particularly those wanting mixed weeks of pheasants, mountain hares etc. Again bookings need to be made well in advance. Overseas visitors require a permit to bring shotguns into the country. This takes about 2 months, and estates insist on proof of third party insurance prior to letting anyone enjoy their sport. The hotel is closed November to mid December but we would be happy to arrange accommodation in one of our self catering chalets.

Red deer abound in the Cairngorms and surrounding area, and many estates let stalking in September and October for stags, and November to February for hinds. Again ample booking time is required, and again permits for imported weapons and proof of insurance are essential.

Go shooting in the Highlands of Scotland on one of our leisure breaks.
