    Daz ....

    not sure but contact angus council see bout availability for visitors permits for montrose basin.....very cheap. i have a residents permit so not sure howvisitors ones work.

    also....you could always try to find an area of coastline that isnt a reserve and then check it for small bays etc and go down between low n high water marks on the foreshore...again quite lucky if you know where to look local and near local that we have some good foreshore shooting on the coast.....would highly recommend a dog tho for retrival of any game.....rocks in the dark can be quite treacherous

    i appreciate you may not be on either coastline?

    DazT,

    The amount of pink feet in your area, surley you can find the loch they are roosting on, sure the farmers would be pleased if you could keep them off the grass parks, I started wildfowling on the Clyde many years ago, had some good bags down Cardwell Bay area as a lad, remeber Sir Guy Shaw Stewart's keeper used to give me a hard time about access, no probs now-a-days.

    The foreshore at lanbank is hoaching Daz, I think access can he gained via Erskine golf club but but you best check, its a contentious issue round there and been a while since I shot there.

    There may be some guns locally at Drums estate for the ducks but not sure who keeper is. Also a few ponds round Kilmacolm but think these are syndicate shoots.

    Had to laugh at Bodach re: Sir Guy & the estate keepers, they were well known as being a bit strict, as were their predecessors but some sport can certainly he had on the foreshore.

    Would rather go out with a guide mate as i've no experience of wildfowling and wouldn't fancy the police helicopter hovering above my head again
