Presented by College Valley Estates Ltd and Lord Joicey:

Rise to the challenge of a MacCheviot - a rare and exclusive chance for a wild sporting day in North Northumberland!

The MacCheviot is a fun interpretation of the classic highland MacNab, based on and around the stunning College Valley estate.

The winning bidder will have the chance to shoot a brace of grouse on the hill before heading out to stalk a roe buck. If successful at both, the challenge is then completed with the landing of a salmon or sea trout on the Ford and Etal Estate beat of the River Till, the only English tributary of the River Tweed. 

Any one of these three parts would make for a fine day out, but the chance to bring them all together in a single 24 hour period puts a fresh and exciting twist on an old idea...

The MacCheviot is to be taken on a date in August or early September, to be agreed with the donors.
