Country Information

Located in the Northern part of Great Britain, there is the one and only Scotland. Full of tradition, character, and amazing lands. Even if English is the main language, do not be surprised to hear Gaelic, reminding us of its Celtic heritage. This nation warmly welcomes tourists as well as hunters.

Even with Brexit and every interrogation it might bring, no specific document or visa is required from within the EU.

Local currency is British Pound (£) as well as our prices.

Firearms and Equipment

To go to Scotland with your own firearm, you will need start procedures 8 weeks in advance in order to optain Scottish Firearm License, allowing you to carry a weapon. We will help you in the procedure. Own Firearm License, Hunting permit and insurance are mandatory.

We have multiple firearms on location. Mostly 12 gauge. Available for rental.

Equipment wise, never forget that you will be hunting in Scotland. Weather is variable and days might be sunny at moments but rainy as well… no one can predict it. However, take various types of clothing, even if every accommodation has a room to dry-up you clothes at night!
