Unrivalled country sports experiences
Imagine fighting to land the majestic 'King of Fish' on world-class salmon rivers like the Tay or the Tweed; or stalking a 10-point red stag for hours amongst the craggy Highland peaks; or testing your stamina and endurance while wildfowling for geese on the estuaries of the Solway Firth.
These are just some of the unrivalled experiences that make Scotland world-famous as a country sports destination. Visitors can enjoy a unique blend of high quality hunting, shooting and fishing experiences set against the stunning natural backdrop that only Scotland can offer.
Country sportsmen have long recognised these qualities and have been coming to Scotland to hunt, shoot and fish for well over a century. This has seen the popularity of country sports thrive and there are now more than 200 sporting providers offering a full range of activities from the Highlands and Islands down to Dumfries & Galloway. As a result, Scottish country sports are amongst the most professionally managed and have conservation very much at the core of businesses.
Organise your trip
It's never been easier to try your hand at one of these exciting sports with opportunities available to suit all budgets. You can even let one of several sporting agents who operate in Scotland organise bespoke tours, helping with travel, accommodation and licences to minimise the amount of organisation that you have to do.
