Small game

Scotland

 

Small game hunting has a long tradition and a very high priority in the British Isles. Good small game hunts are hard to find in most of the European countries, and it is even more difficult to be allowed to hunt there. In Scotland, on the other hand, things are different. The small game populations here are very high and the opportunities are many. Whether you prefer rough shooting or driven hunt, whether you want to hunt grouse, geese, pigeons, ducks, pheasants, woodcocks or rabbits, everything is possible here.

Accomodation
