Drumlanrig - SW Scotland
Driven partridges start from the 1st September and the partridge shoot has developed into one of the top shoots in the country with birds flying from a great range of challenging heights and angles. There are now three excellent beats with 24 drives ranging from difficult to the extreme. All beats are situated between the moorland and wooded areas on the estate with breath-taking scenery and easy access from hill tracks. The high driven partridge shoot at Drumlanrig is renowned amongst the best shots in the land.
There are also three principal pheasant beats at Drumlanrig, covering 15,000 acres. Across these beats are 25 exhilarating drives varying from extremely high gliding pheasants on bracken-clad hills, to perfectly positioned game covers and mixed mature woodlands, all situated within spectacular scenery. Here, they can offer some of the best, diverse, top quality pheasant shooting in Scotland and up to a week's sport can be arranged without covering the same ground twice. A variety of shoot days are offered ranging from full, double gun, driven days with loaders to single guns with bags ranging from 150 to 500 birds per day.
