Grouse Shooting

Whitfield grouse moor is circa 6,500 acres with effectively two and a half beats: in a good year we will shoot three days a week early in the season otherwise we will shoot two. Back to back days can be offered.

In very good years (e.g. 2001, 2004) the moor can shoot over 3,000 brace, with some individual days in excess of 200-300 brace. In 2017 4,000 brace were shot. Most days early in the season will be let for 200 plus brace with days of 150 and 100 brace as the season progresses.

The moor is butted for a team of up to 10 guns. Most lines of butts are sunk and the majority have been renewed in recent years. Teams usually shoot with double guns and loaders.

Each beat has its dedicated lunch hut (two of which are stone built). A good lunch (including hot soup) is provided along with a wide selection of drinks and nice wine. For those who find rough walking challenging, the Estate provides both Argocat and Polaris ATVs with good seating.

Transport onto the moor from the meeting point in Whitfield can be arranged.
