Highland Grouse at Glenbuchat

Highland Grouse at Glenbuchat

A hosted trip Scotland for Highland Grouse in August...

For a number of years I have been working with the Glenbuchat estate in Aberdeenshire, introducing clients to this hidden gem. It’s a pocket estate, receiving the very best management and therefore producing some very reliable highland grouse. Those who have shot their English cousins will find the highlands offer a wilder and much more challenging experience, stunning views, with bag sizes that won’t break the bank.

 I will be hosting a three day, four night trip from 30th August to 3rd September, shooting the first two days at Glenbuchat and the last day on neighbouring Candacraig Estate.

We will be basing the trip from the fabulous Glenbuchat Lodge which is first class and has been totally renovated to the highest standards in a massive project which was completed in time for last shooting season.

 For first class sport and accommodation with a fun and relaxed atmosphere this one is tough to beat.

By Umbraco.Core.Models.Membership.User

Six months is a long time in the Natural World, and even more so in the heather-clad uplands of Northern England and Scotland. Most moors started the winter with good, healthy stocks of grouse, having had solid seasons last year. Who would have foreseen the effects of the long, challenging winter that was to come...
