A fantastic opportunity for up to ten guns to get a taste of driven grouse shooting on Speyside, where novel moorland management techniques have been pioneered to optimise grouse productivity and reduce operating costs.

The morning will see a drive on Ben Rinnes, near Aberlour, followed by an opportunity to discuss and examine some fascinating moorland management techniques such as “Narrow Strip Matrix” for heather which is used by British Moorlands on various properties around Morayshire.

Two more drives after lunch will give a further opportunity to shoot driven grouse in the beautiful surroundings of Speyside. Expected bag of about ten brace.
