The Glenogil Estate is now regarded as one of the finest sporting Estate in Scotland. The scenery is absolutely stunning on this extremely private property. The Estate provides a wonderful backdrop for superb shooting which will satisfy even the most demanding sportsman.
Extending to over 23,000 acres with topography which ranges from productive farmland rising to the top of the moor (the highest point on the estate at 2,030 feet), the scale of this Estate is difficult to comprehend.
Driven Grouse Shooting at Glenogil
The Grouse moor extends to over 17,000 acres and is made up of six separate beats. Because of a carefully planned policy of rejuvenation, Glenogil is now one of the most productive Grouse Moors in Scotland, capable of shooting days of up to 300 brace. The season’s starts on August 12th and up to six days a week can be shot in the early weeks of the season.
The moor is extremely well roaded allowing excellent access to Guns and the undulating nature of the hills means that the moor provides high quality shooting.
There are a few moors in Scotland which can truthfully claim to be able to offer Grouse shooting on the same scale as the best moors in the North of England, but Glenogil is very much one of those Scottish moors that can.
Pheasant and Partridge Shooting at Glenogil
Encompassing nearly 5 000 acres, the mix of bracken, gullies and established woods has earned the low ground shooting at Glenogil and Auchnacree a well-deserved reputation as one of the best driven shoots in the area. The drives of The Beaches, Auchnacree, Glenley, Mochrie and St Arnolds rival any in the country.
Strategic placing of the guns in the deep gullies produces excellent shooting, challenging the best guns. On the fringes of the grouse moors, the bracken and rough grass provide ideal cover for red leg partridge. With pheasant opening in late October and partridges from late September, the shooting continues to the seasons end on February 1st.
Days of 150 to 300 birds will be available for teams of up to 8 guns and early reservations are recommended.
Staying at Redheaugh Lodge
There are four properties on the Estate which can be used by guests when shooting. The largest is Redheaugh Lodge, strategically situated at the heart of the Estate. Redheaugh Lodge is of an unusual Victorian design and it was completely rebuilt in 2010 and now provides stunning luxuriously appointed accommodation in nine double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The Lodge is one of the finest we have come across and makes an ideal base for a party shooting on Glenogil or indeed when shooting on nearby Estates. Additionally there is a two bedroom cottage which can be used for overflow accommodation to the main Lodge.
The Bothy situated nearby and recently refurbished to a very high standard indeed (very unlike any other Bothy we know!), has four twin bedrooms and a large vaulted open plan living area.
The Mochrie is a former farm steading, completely rebuilt in 2009 and providing two separate but adjacent cottages, situated in a stunning location in the heart of the Estate but rather more remote than the other houses. The Mochrie has wonderful views across to open moorland and is ideal for a smaller parties or for those guests truly wanting to be in the middle of nowhere!
All of the properties can be rented on a self-catering basis or fully staffed using the Estate’s chef, butler and housekeeper. Linen, towels and toiletries are included and all properties are fully equipped to a very high standard with crockery, glasses, etc.
Additionally, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and trout fishing is available on the Estate by arrangement.
