Win the ultimate sporting challenge

There’s still time to enter one of this year’s best charity prize draws for those with an interest in the finest country sports.

And what better way to celebrate Christmas than to be the winner of a very special day’s driven grouse shooting for nine guns during the 2014 season.

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is offering a unique opportunity for the winner of this draw to invite eight friends to enjoy the most exciting sport available as guests of Mr Charles Connell on his glorious Garrogie & Stronelairg Estates in Inverness-shire. The prize includes bed and breakfast for one night, with lunch and tea on the day. Accommodation will be provided by the Whitebridge Hotel in Whitebridge which is conveniently located close to the moor and only three miles from the south side of Loch Ness. The hotel is renowned for its comfort and good food and welcomes shooting parties, including their well behaved dogs!

The date of the shoot day will be during September in 2014, depending on July 2014 grouse counts, and by prior arrangement with Garrogie Estate. If grouse stocks don’t allow shooting, the day will be carried forward to the following season only.

Not only is this a rare chance to win the ultimate sporting challenge, but the chance to experience driven grouse in its purest and most rewarding form. Guns can expect to shoot circa 50 brace.

Tickets cost £2 each – available in books of 20. The draw will take place on 10 December 2013, so there’s a only a few days left to bag yourself an early festive treat . Proceeds of this draw will support the work of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust.
