The season for Salmon fishing varies according to region, but generally runs from early February to late October and the brown trout season is March 15th - 6th October. There is no closed season for rainbow trout as this is not an indigenous species.

Itinerary

Deer Stalking

Deer Stalking

The most popular type of deer stalking in Scotland is for red deer. These magnificent animals are a symbol of Scotland and a red deer stag with a full set of antlers is a wonderful quarry. There are 750,000 red deer in Scotland and although most stalking takes place in the Highlands. Roe deer stalking is an increasingly popular sport, as their numbers are now said to at least match the population of red deer in Scotland.
Examples of estates in the different regions are: Ardlussa on the Isle of Jura and Glen Borrodale in the Western Highlands.

River Fishing

River Fishing

We offer guided fly-fishing for salmon and brown/rainbow trout in a variety of locations, from Islay to the east coast. Scotland is famous for its salmon. Magnificent rivers such as the Spey, Tay, Tweed, Helmsdale and Nith deliver outstanding Atlantic Salmon.
Your professional ghillie (guide) will lead you to the best spots on the river. If the water levels are high, fishing for salmon will switch from fly to spinning. Tuition in fly casting can be given by professional guides.

Hunting

Hunting

Grouse Shooting takes place on carefully tended grouse moors - mainly in the Highlands, Angus and the Borders.
Pheasant Shoots are probably the most common and sought after in Scotland. As the birds are usually "farm-reared" and released over suitable terrain, the supply is consistent and plentiful. We have access to numerous locations the length and breadth of the country to match the requirements of every party.
Walked-Up Woodcock and Snipe Shooting is available mainly on the West Coast and Islands.
