Can anyone help out with some suggestions, either based on your own experience or on what you would like to see.
I have a friend who has been a hill farmer for some years.
Due to circumstances and personal preference, he has suggested that he would like to open up part of his ground to sporting interests.
The ground he has amounts to around 5000 acres and comprises hill ground with a reasonable stock of red deer,some mature woodland which holds pheasant in low numbers, a marsh which attracts duck, snipe and woodcock.
He has been keen to quiz me on what is needed and I have helped where I can.
The concern I have is with regard to contracting with syndicates.
If anyone has any knowledge or opinions on that front it would be good to hear it.
I haven't included details of the ground only to say that it's on the West coast of scotland.
Hopefully it's not advertising !
All the best
