Our woodcock days on the 
wooded hill ground of Sleat
 provide are an unforgettable experience.

Walked up days are avail
able from November through to 
January. Days consist of flushing
 woodcock from cover with dogs and
 often involve long walks over rug
ged terrain in a stunning landscape.
 Many experienced shooters consider
 these birds to be the ultimate sport
ing challenge.

The majority of the 
woodcock seen during the winter 
months are seasonal visitors from
 northern Scandinavia and Russia. 
It is a quarry that we treat with the greatest respect, harvesting 
no more than is sustainable in
 terms of the population each year.
 Our emphasis is on the experience
 of the day, the magnificence of the 
scenery and the challenge of the
 sport, not the size of the bag.

Shoot
ing lunches are served in the Both-
an, a characterful stone bothy in the
 Glen of Ord, with views over the native woodlands of the glen towards
 Loch Eishort and the dramatic peaks
 of the Cuillins. A wood burning stove
 provides a warm welcome with the
 enjoyment of a hot lunch cooked by 
our chefs at Hotel Eilean Iarmain.
