Sporting activities with Sporting Scotland

Stalking

Sporting Scotland has access to some of the finest stalking for roe and red deer on some of the  most scenic estates in the Highland and Islands. The stalkers working on these estates ensure unforgettable sport and a unique insight into the working of a highland estate. A stalking package includes luxurious or more simple accommodation as required.

Sporting Scotland takes care of all aspects of your stalking trip, including trophy treatment, taxidermy requirements and shipping.

Wing Shooting & Falconry

Speyside offers a wide variety of driven and walked-up days over moorlands to suit all fitness levels. All moorlands will have views of either the Cairngorms, Ladder Hills, Moray Firth or the Sutherland mountains.

Sporting Scotland offers the opportunity to observe the ancient sport of falconry in the wilds of the Highlands’ Monadhliath Mountains, where peregrine falcons are flown at red grouse in a natural contest. The birds hunt over 7000 acres of hill ground.

On a typical day you will watch a trained pointer working to find the grouse, a peregrine falcon climb hundreds of feet above you, then “wait-on” for the flush before descending on its quarry at speeds over 100 mph.

Fly Fishing

The fishing season in Scotland opens from the 11 February to 30 September. Sporting Scotland books fishing trips on first class fishing beats on well-known rivers and lochs throughout Scotland.

The company is within casting distance of one of Scotland’s big four salmon fishing rivers, the River Spey. Here, Sporting Scotland has the privilege of working with many of the country’s most respected fly fishing instructors.

Individuals and corporate groups can mutually benefit from their expertise. They offer specialised tuition to novice and advanced fly fishers and have developed a digital analysis tool to evaluate and optimise the client’s fishing performance.

Sporting Scotland arranges national and international fishing trips.
