Day One: The team of guns arrives at Edinburgh airport and is collected late in the morning for transport to our home for the week, Kinloch House. Kinloch is a traditional country house located in the outskirts of Blairgowrie. We will all get settled in, walk the grounds, and gather for supper mid-afternoon.
Day Two: After a Scottish breakfast, we will be driven in 4x4’s to the Ochil Hills near Perth, for a 200 bird day. This estate has remarkable topography, allowing for the presentation of excellent pheasant and partridge from diverse drives, including traditional wood drives and open hill shooting.
Day Three: The first shooting day should have all firmly on foot and in the shooting groove, so we will travel to a spectacular Perthshire venue on Butterstone Loch in the Lunan Valley for another 200 bird day, including pheasant, duck, and partridge. This picturesque estate is situated in the hills above the historic town of Dunkeld. You will have your choice of high challenging shots over a variety of terrain.
Day Four: The team is transported to Brechin Castle on the Dalhousie Estate in Angus. Signature drives such as ‘Aldbar’ and the island drive ‘Maulesden’ will test even the most experienced of guns. This will be a 250 bird day filled with pheasant and partridge.
Day Five: We will finish the week with a spectacular 300 bird day at the historic Glamis Estate in the Vale of Strathmore. Glamis Castle is famed as being the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, birthplace of The Princess Margaret and the setting for Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'. Glamis has multiple challenging drives over rolling hills and dense woodlands.
We will finish the day with a final shoot dinner at Kinloch House, including a traditional address to the haggis.
Day Six: The team will be transported back to Edinburgh to catch afternoon flights.
