Item available until:20 May 2022 12:00:00 BST (item sold)

Presented by Dick Bartlett, British Moorlands. Website: www.britishmoorlands.com.

The morning will be spent counting breeding pairs of grouse using pointing dogs to find and flush the pairs which will give an indication of the shooting potential of the 2023 season. This is fascinating to watch if you enjoy seeing good gundog work.

The afternoon offers you hands-on experience of moorland work such as heather management, grit site selection and operation, water provision for upland wildlife and predator trapping systems.

The whole day is guided by Dick Bartlett who will explain how modern technology is used by British Moorlands to produce grouse shooting which is technically and financially sustainable, and also affordable to the ordinary shooter.

Please see www.britishmoorlands.com for more information on our work to save our heather moorland heritage through viable grouse production for shooting and falconry.

Suitable for a group of 2 - 10.
Location; Speyside, North East Scotland
Date: tba for March/April 2023.

Cost:
£120
Item available until:20 May 2022 12:00:00 BST (finished)

Presented by Hamish Waugh, Effgill, near Langholm:

"A day (for two people) with a traditional hill shepherd.

The day, depending on work on hand, will consist of a tour around the farm and seeing how hefted sheep are herded, seeing my collies at work, and an explanation of what the winning bidder is seeing.

There will be roast lamb for lunch where Fiona and I will be on hand for a general discussion and able to answer questions as they arise.

We would hope the day will be taken in early or mid-summer (preferably before shearing time) but can be flexible when arrangements are made."
