Glenogil Estate, Scotland
The Glenogil Estate lies at the heart of the Angus glens, some 40 minutes north of the town of Dundee.
This famous mixed sporting estate is steeped in history and encompasses nearly 3,000 acres of low ground, the mix of bracken, gullies and established woods has earned the shooting at Glenogil, a well-deserved reputation as one of the best driven shoots in the area.
The drives of The Beaches, The Chair, Glenley, Keillor and St Arnolds rival any in the country.
Strategic placing of the guns in the deep gullies produces excellent and challenging sport. On the fringes of the grouse moors, the bracken and rough grass provide ideal cover for red leg partridge. With pheasant opening in late October and partridge from late September, the shooting continues to the seasons end on February 1st.
Redheugh Lodge, which is owned by the estate, is situated in the heart of the shoot and this offers first class accommodation for shoot parties. Menus are all agreed before arrival and the level of service and hospitality is first class.
Day’s range from 300 to 400 birds per day and the shoot can easily accommodate lines of up to 9 guns.
