Last year's winners set off on their day's shooting
TIME is running out to win a memorable day’s shooting on an illustrious estate in Scotland.
The 2018 Grand Grouse Draw, which closes at MIDNIGHT on Sunday, December 2nd, offers the lucky winner and eight friends the chance to go driven grouse shooting on Glenogil Estate, stay overnight in luxurious accommodation at Redheugh Lodge and enjoy excellent meals cooked by the estate’s resident chef.
And it’s a prize which has certainly been enjoyed by previous winners, including 2017 victor Toby Milwright who enjoyed the experience in September.
He said: “A day of extreme driven grouse in the epic highland setting of the Mar Estate, followed by a stay at the luxurious Mill of Dess Lodge, it was an experience that I was delighted to be able to share with good friends.
“Having bought grouse draw tickets for a good dozen years, with the main intention to simply support an organization (GWCT) I believe in, it was an unbelievable honour to win. We have all bought our tickets for next year’s draw!”
The 2016 winner Lindsay Marshall, a Hampshire farmer, enjoyed a similar experience, who religiously bought tickets for the raffle for the past 30 years.
He said it was “beautiful moors, great weather and warm hospitality”.
Shooting at Glenogil Estate, which lies between Glen Clova and Glen Lethnot, has a reputation for its spectacular scenery and its very high standards in game and wildlife conservation management. Its six beats cover around 17,000 acres of moorland to a height of 2,300 ft.
The estate has been subject to considerable investment over recent years, with its owners and management taking pride in enhancing the natural environment and their responsibility for the countryside and for local people. In addition to moorland, the estate has 3,000 acres of low ground and high biodiversity woodland.
