Scotland has a long-standing tradition of hunting, deeply rooted in its history and culture. The country’s diverse topography, ranging from lush woodlands to expansive moorlands, provides the perfect habitat for a variety of game species. Whether you’re an experienced hunter or a novice, Scotland offers a unique and challenging hunting experience that will leave you captivated.

Red stag hunting in the Scottish Highlands is that classic spot-and-stalk European hunt that you picture in your mind. A great, traditional experience. If you wish to also hunt Sika stag and Roebuck, they live in the forested areas of the lower country.

One stag is included in the price of your hunt, but there is no bag limit so you can take additional stags for a trophy fee. There is a VIP area for those interested in higher trophy quality.


Just to stay in the Highland itself is a very relaxing holiday. But for those who would like to experience more of Scotland, the outfitter can arrange sightseeing in the nearby areas and of course some local shopping of tweed and other local products. Some of the more popular tours are a visit to Loch Ness, and the Inverness whisky distillery.
