GWCT Scotland offers a range of services through our Advisory department. An Advisory visit is an excellent opportunity to help improve your estate, farm or shoot to benefit all biodiversity. With 30 years of advisory experience and over 80 years of conservation research, the GWCT is the UK’s leading body for pragmatic game and wildlife management. Visit types include:

  • Enhancing grouse stocks and moorland biodiversity through our Grouse Technical Services (GTS).
  • Lowland game management improvements for example woodland creation and game crop planning.
  • Predator control inspections with particular emphasis on WaNE (Wildlife & Natural Environment Act 2011) legislation.

If you would like to find out more about our advisory visits, please contact our Scottish Headquarters on 01738 551511 or
