Mulgrave Castle shoot is set within 9,000 acres of rolling farmland, deep wooded valleys, wild coastline and ancient woodland providing stunning and excellent shooting topography on the North East coast, close to the harbour town of Whitby.
The shooting at Mulgrave is steeped in history. In 1858, Maharaja Duleep Singh leased Mulgrave Castle from Lord Normanby so he could shoot on the estate. He imported elephants from India to be used as transport on shoot days and these were walked daily on the beach at Sandsend.
The elephants were trained to trumpet as he left the last drive after a days shooting to alert the house staff that he was returning for tea. Unfortunately there are no elephants on the estate today but his vision for a top class shoot is still very evident.
The variation in landscape at Mulgrave, as well as the high quality of birds, is what sets it apart from other shoots. Deep Devon-like valleys at Footmans Leap to coastal drives such as The Point, Thorns and The Seat, including more open drives such as Quarry Wood, enhance this shoot's uniqueness and satisfies every gun’s drive preference.
