You will fly to Glasgow, from where a 4-hour drive will take you to the hunting areas, which are located on the coast on the western edge of the Scottish mainland. The hunting season for red stags extends
from 01 August to 20 October, after which the hind season starts.

The trophy size in our hunting areas, which are perhaps unique in the whole of Scotland, is above average.

A normal highland stag has 6 - 10 points. Those with 12 points are called a "royal".

Red stag hunting season: 01 August to 20 October

Red hind stalking: 21 October to late January

Hunting is not allowed on Sundays in Scotland, so this would be a good day for your arrival.

It is possible to bring your own hunting rifle, but if you want to travel without a rifle you can borrow a rifle on site.

The hunting area is the best managed hunting area in Scotland. The trophy quality is incomparable to any other Scottish hunting areas. With new blood and proper management, great stags streak through Scotland in this area. Due to the highlands and the direct location by the sea, the area offers a unique natural landscape and is a dream for every active sporty hunter as well as for every nature-loving non-hunter.
