"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 Henry Mark Beaufoy 1902

The facts

In years with successful breeding seasons, Kildermorie Estate offers grouse walked up over dogs, and ptarmigan on the high scree of the 838 metre Carn Chuinneag. However, in common with many other estates, because of recent difficult breeding seasons, the availability of grouse shooting is assessed on a year-by-year basis.

Clay pigeon shooting can be arranged at Kildermorie; the estate has three clay traps which can reproduce the flight patterns of partridge, pheasant, grouse and teal as well as the running rabbit.

For guests wishing to use an estate shotgun on Kildermorie or Baledigle, it is not necessary to be in posession of a Shot Gun Certificate since unaccompanied shooting is never permitted. All sport involving the use of shotguns is under the supervision of professional estate staff.
