This was, without doubt, one of the most enjoyable and challenging shoots that I have had the pleasure of doing and the landscape was absolutely breath-taking." Tom Gardner, London
Rough shoots at the Glenrinnes Estate provide a more informal shooting experience than driven shoots or deer stalking. A fun day out, it is suitable for novices and more experienced guns alike, providing an opportunity to shoot a greater diversity of game.
What is rough shooting?
The British Association for Shooting & Conservation suggests that rough shooting is one of the most popular and rewarding forms of shooting, during which shooters use trained dogs and beaters to flush game out of the hedgerows, woods or other cover as they walk along.
What will I shoot?
As well as pheasant and partridge, there is the chance of snipe, woodcock, hares and other game. Rough shooting offers much greater variety than a driven shoot.
When can I do it?
The Glenrinnes Estate can offer rough shooting days from the end of October until the end of January.
How long does the day last?
Rough shooting days normally start at 9am and finish at 3pm.
