GROUSE ROUGHSHOOTING STAYS
(from the end of August to September 10th)
The grouse is possibly the most mythical Scottish bird, and a dream for many.
Organised to suit individual requirements, these short breaks will allow you to discover or rediscover a symbolic hunt of Scotland: grouse shooting.
You will need to be fit, but we do adapt the grounds to the party because it always has to be a pleasurable experience.
This outing has never left anyone indifferent. The magical Highlands spirit permeates the hunt…You have to feel it to understand it.
We go out at about 9.15/9.30am and drive you to the cirques or to the wide valleys where the grouse lives. Once the row is formed (there are 30 to 60 meters between each hunter), you walk in the direction given by your guide. At about midday you will eat your lunch box (provided) on the moors, weather permitting (and if not, we will be indoors). We will leave the grounds at the end of the afternoon. Once back at the hunting lodge, you can take photographs, and the day will often end tasting a “local product”…To be taken in moderation, of course. Some birds can be added on top of the package, depending on the local grouse population.
Red Deer Stags. We offer stalking for trophy or cull animals in Scotland throughout the season from July 1st. The end of September is the most popular time as well as the end of the stag season on October20th: rutting season.
Hinds begin in the morning on October 21th and finish at the end of January.
Stags hunting can be mixed with fishing.
Over the last 10 years the Orkney Islands have become a major holding ground for overwintering grey lags and pink footed geese.
The numbers can reach in excess of 80000 at their peak, ensuring that there is a high number of geese throughout the season.
We have up to 300 decoys available to suit varying conditions along with the latest layout blinds, hides and calls.
A selection of 4×4 vehicles, quads and trailers ensure that your walking and kit carrying is kept to an absolute minimum.
It starts at the crack of dawn and goes on until about 10am.
During this period the birds fly from their roost to their chosen field to feed and graze.
Shooting takes place from layout blinds, hides, stone walls or ditches over a lifelike pattern of decoys.
The quarry is mainly wild migratory Icelandic grey lags, pink footed geese are common and ducks can also be encountered.
After the flight is over and the kit is packed away together with the shot birds, we go back to base for breakfast. Shot birds can then be sorted out and stored in the game room.
These can take place over fed flight ponds, splashes, coastal stretches and lochs.
The quarry is mainly grey lag geese, pink feet geese, mallard, widgeon and teal.
Orkney provide truly spectacular wild shooting in breathtaking surroundings.
After the flight, we go back for an evening meal and might want to enjoy a couple of drinks at the local pub.
The East Coast of Scotland has long been associated with high quality trophies.
