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.
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.
