"If a sportsman true you'd be
Listen carefully to me:
Never, never, let your gun
Pointed be at anyone..."

'A Father's Advice' by Mark Hanbury Beaufoy 1902

The facts

In years with successful breeding seasons, Kildermorie Estate offers red grouse, snipe and woodcock, either walked up or over dogs, plus the occasional ptarmigan on the high scree of the 838 metres high Carn Chuinneag. In common with many other estates, because of difficult breeding seasons the availability of wild bird shooting is assessed on a year-by-year basis.

Clay pigeon shooting is available at Kildermorie; the Estate has three clay traps that can simulate the flight patterns of partridge, pheasant, grouse and teal as well as running rabbit.

For guests wishing to use an Estate shot gun, it is not necessary to be in possession of a Shot Gun Certificate since all sport involving the use of shot guns is under the supervision of professional Estate staff.
