I'll have to wait until 2017; can't get my FAC until then. Just moved to the Highlands in July (after retiring) and, as I have been being taught - the hard way - all good things take time, and longer in the UK. In the mean time, I will be looking to get, at least, my Level 1 and Butchery under my belt. Have to see what finances and time allow.
sorry for the short delay in responding to your post, but I only returned home Saturday from a 9 day hunt with overseas customers.
You will find all the information about the SD week if you look into the posts on this thread and others. But basically it is a weeks stalking on my 8000 acre lease in the highlands around late October. All inclusive including accommodation and stalking for £875 (this is 2015 price) This year due to demand we are doing 2 weeks with all the lads and next year I hope will be much the same.
You can PM me your details and phone number and we can pencil you in for next year if you are interested.
