The castle offers an excellent location for those who enjoy field sports. There is a wealth of choice, with what can only be described as, some of the finest shooting in Scotland on the doorstep. This includes the surrounding Glenapp Estate, Dalreoch and Logan Estate. Deer stalking can also be arranged.

The surrounding Glenapp Estate offers some of the highest quality pheasant shooting in Scotland, with notable drives established across the Estate, exploiting the dramatic coastal cliffs, high hills, deep glens and moorland fringe of the estate, allowing experienced guns a fantastic opportunity for challenging sport. Rough shooting is available on request. With a professional tracker, follow the trail of stags and deer through the forest and glens, and capture on film the beauty of these silent forest dwellers.

Glenapp are happy to partner with Logan Estate which is a family run estate on the peninsula of the Rhin’s of Galloway with fantastic coastal views. The Estate has a long-established shoot which benefits from the gulf stream which often makes it warmer and dryer than the rest of Scotland. The shoot itself is spread over 7000 acres and offers partridge, pheasant and duck shooting as well as deer stalking.

The Dalreoch Farming and Sporting Estate belongs to the Wellesley family who descend from the McConnel’s who have lived in the Stinchar valley for 150 years. It is run as a traditional rural estate with farming, fishing and shooting at its heart. Bags vary from 75 to 400 birds. Quality driven pheasants and partridges are driven from mature woodland and high ground cover crops. The steep hills of the valley challenge guns with numerous high, fast birds.
