Thread: Friend moving to Scotland

    Friend moving to Scotland

    A friend of mine has an opportunity to start fresh with a new job and will either be based within an hour of the Cairngorms national park, or near to Fort William. Is anyone from these areas and if so it's like to live in these locations? Obviously they are beautiful places.

    He's heavily into stalking and I wondered whats his chances of joining a syndicate or getting talking to local farmers and managing the deer population within private agreements as he has done for years down in the west country.

    Is all of the land swamped with people trying to get stalking and paid days out is his only options? He's no trophy hunter and enjoys managing deer for the benefit of the herds.

    Many thanks

    There is shooting about, your unlikely to trip over it!! Word of mouth and friends is usually a good source of it. friendly keepers needing a hand with hind culls is another!!!

    say that. He wouldn't expect something for nothing, but he's worried about it all being bought up and commercialised.
    I haven't decided wether I'm jealous of him or not yet! Cheers
