Red Deer Stalking
Stags. The season for Red deer stags is from 1st July to 20th October. Realistically our season runs from mid September to the 20th October. Highland stalking is much sought after and it is difficult to book at short notice so it is important for you to plan well in advance. You will find this with most Highland Estates. However, it will be cheaper for you to research Highland Estate websites than to go through an agent - unless you want the agent to do your work for you!
Hind Stalking. We do not normally accept tenants for hind stalking as we wish to complete the hind and calf cull as quickly and efficiently as we can. However, if you are determined to have a go, please contact myself, Peter Hingston.
Roe Deer Stalking
Bucks. The season for Roe buck stalking is traditionally from 1st April until 21st October but Fairburn offers Roe buck stalking from 1st April until late August at the latest. We do not offer Roe doe stalking.
Driven Pheasant Shooting
We run a formal driven pheasant shoot here during the season. We start at the beginning of November and run through to the end of January. We shoot on driven drives across some of the most scenic ground in Ross-shire (the shoot was established in the 1860's) and we pride ourselves in offering a wide range of quarry (pheasant, grey or English partridge, greylag goose, mallard, teal, snipe and woodcock). We normally expect to have five drives in the morning with a break for lunch at 1.00 pm until 2.00 pm, then up to three drives in the afternoon. Our average bag, dependant on the quality of guns is 60 – 100 birds. Our focus is on quality, not quantity and we have a special team of beaters, pickers-up and keepers to ensure that you have an enjoyable family day.
An evening's duck shooting may be available. We can accommodate up to four guns and the quarry is normally wild mallard, teal and occasionally widgeon. Guns meet here one hour before dusk to give sufficient time to get to the pond. The evening is complete once birds have been picked up. Trained dogs are welcome.
Fairburn has some excellent habitat for woodcock shooting. It is hard work and guns need to be fit, as we cover hill ground as well as low ground primarily in birch woods. We can accommodate up to six guns and we are flexible about tailoring the day to suit the party. Lunch can be provided at an extra cost. We prefer not to have dogs for hunting, but guns may bring dogs for picking up if they are well trained and used to woodcock shooting.
We can tailor rough shooting to suit your needs. Generally we have pigeon shooting available and we can also offer days after pheasant, woodcock and duck. We can manage up to six guns and would prefer to discuss your own requirements, with you.
