Phoines Estate presents a wide range of sporting opportunities in a uniquely accessible location by car, rail or air in the Highlands of Scotland. This traditional mixed highland sporting estate covers some 20,000 acres of the Cairngorms National Park, offering guests fantastic opportunities to shoot a range of driven or walked game. William Powell Sporting are delighted to be able to offer exclusive access to these highly sought after tailormade sporting packages, which are individually put together to create the ultimate Highland sporting experience.
Phoines is one of Scotland’s premier driven grouse moors, offering some of the most sporting grouse shooting available in the UK. Indeed, the renowned grouse shot, The Duke of Northumberland, believes the grouse on the Corries drives at Phoines are the most challenging to be found anywhere in the world. With the bulk of the grouse drives set within these spectacular Corries, each over 3,000 feet, a day spent shooting grouse in any one of the Estate’s 200 year old grouse butts is as demanding and magnificent a day’s sport as can be had anywhere in the world.
The Estate offers walked up grouse shooting in addition to its driven grouse shooting calendar, with these days being not only distinctively challenging given the terrain, but also hugely rewarding, providing guests with a true sporting experience. Any walked up grouse day would be shot traditionally with a team of guns walking in a parallel line across the face of the moor, shooting grouse as they rise in front. For guests staying at Phoines Lodge, a packed lunch will be provided which will be enjoyed on the hill halfway through the day. Early season days have target bags of 15 brace per day with this being reduced to 10 brace per day as the season progresses and grouse become flightier.
Phoines also benefits from having its own on-site accommodation in the form of Phoines Lodge. The Lodge, which is a classic Scottish Lodge and set at the foot of the impressive Cairngorm hills, and provides the ideal location for teams to relax during their stay. The lodge benefits from a large sitting room and a beautiful dining room, which are both ideal for entertaining guests. The lodge has the ability to sleep a total of 19 guests in 10 rooms.
