Ladies and gents,
My name is Scott, I'm 23 and I'm a beat keeper for the estate in South Uist. Been with them for 2 years now, just completed my UHI HNC in Gamekeeping and Wildlife Management. Originally from the island and have been on the island all my life (except for 3 years at uni in Glasgow) and for the past 6 years I've been involved with the goose shooting for the estate and have recently been involved more in the deer stalking on the estate due to a change of head keeper (the old one has retired).
Looking forward to getting to know other ways people do things and will no doubt be on the scrounge (I'm Scottish, it's what we do ) for things that others don't need which might help me in my career.
Stag season has just opened so I hope to get out a lot more to stalk the majestic Red deer on these islands.
All the best,
