    Speaking from the customer perspective, there are still some eye watering prices out there, so I would suggest that the quality end of the market is doing quite nicely. I try and go out somewhere new once a year and I would rather pay a good price for a 'quality' outing from someone established rather than take a chance on a budget outing, especially when I take into the account the cost of getting there.

    By the lack of interest in your advertisement I would think that says a lot.................... I think you must be the most expensive stag stalking on SD

    350 + 12 per point is a rip off but a fool and his money is soon parted as they say " always someone who will pay it but not me id hang up my guns first

    For me that's too much.
    Unfortunately money is tight and although I manage to justify the fees for my lease, an extra 55% on the year for one outing can't be justified.
    At those prices I doubt if I'll ever be able to go for the staggies.
    But hey ho that's life.

    I notice your in Callander mate, some very nice ground and beasts in that area, your maybe a touch pricey but not much different from the mainstream.

    I have a good idea mind you. . . why don't Jcampbellsmith and I come up for a couple of free days on the stags and report back to the SD membership on your outfit

    You can be assured we will say many many favourable things

    Edit - Sorry, I notice your stalking is on Mull, not callander . . . . Stunning scenery, plenty of deer . . . . .can you tell I love Mull ?

    Although on a slightly different note we did nearly sink on the ferry {if you can call it that} from Fionnphort to Iona last year - Man it was rough !!!! I couldnt enjoy Iona for shitting myself about the sail back !!!!
