Deer Stalking

It's the excitement of not knowing what's around the next corner

Six species of deer live freely in the British countryside. Only Red deer and Roe deer are truly indigenous. Fallow deer were almost certainly introduced by the Normans, whilst three Asiatic species; Muntjac, Chinese water deer and Sika deer arrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The characteristics of each species make them well-suited to the habitats found across Britain and highly adaptable to environmental changes.

We are fortunate enough to be able to offer Stalking on over 100,000 acres throughout the Scottish highlands, whether you’re an avid hunter or new to the sport we can offer stalking for all abilities.
