Thread: Walked up grouse and rough rabbit and pigeon... where?

  1. #1

    Walked up grouse and rough rabbit and pigeon... where?

    I have friends (a father and son) who wish to come over from Europe to enjoy two days walked up grouse and one day on rabbits and pigeons, over pointers/retrievers. They have their own guns on "Carte Européenne d'Armes à feu" and would hope/expect that any estate could provide the dogs and a guide.

    For the three days sport and accommodation they have budget of about €3000 (£2500) for the two of them (not each)

    Where and with whom can anyone here recommend?

    I had hoped perhaps a nice Perthshire Estate like Blair Atholl but do not know if their budget will stretch to that.

    Sorry, I realise now that I should have made my friends' requirements clearer. They especially wish to visit Scotland and have a desire to be in more the North. Like Perthshire or also perhaps even more North than that.

    Grouse over pointers will probably be about 90ish a brace plus money for dog handler think usually £150-200

    Have beat and picked up on Ralia/Drumocter estate they have some cracking ground and do run walked up and shot over days as well as the driven, i think there driven days are fully booked years in advance but i think smaller days may be ok. Think a few of the moors round about Newtonmore area will run smaller walked up days althou a lot will depend on the numbers, would omagine should be fairly healthy with the weather so far but still early days yet.

    Ideally if u can deal direct with the estate/keeper it should make it slightly cheaper
    Otherwise ur best bet would be to have a look on sporting/land agents websites, esp if there scottish, CKD Galbraith, JM Osbourne(sort of specialises in grouse), Savils,Smiths gore or even Guns on pegs

    If your friends fancy pheasant, woodcock, unlimited duck flights and GREAT hospitality in the heart of Perthshire in glorious surroundings PM me.

    Kildermorie estate is in the norht, beautiful and looks like it falls in your budget with accomodation in a small house on site (see website). Walkup grouse (and ptarmigan!) as well as blue hare. Not sure about pigeon, but when I was there the stalker's lads were out in the evening doing some informal pigeon flighting so I guess something could be arranged.

    I do not know this Estate. I have added their name to my list of possibles and will phone them tomorrow. Thank you for this.
