Shooting breaks & Stalking

Home/ Activities/ Shooting & Stalking

Scotland is renowned for shooting, stalking and hunting. At Kinloch House we regularly host groups and shooting parties keen to experience the best shoots in the Perthshire region and we can assist in putting together a great package for individuals or groups.  Shooting opportunities are often seasonal in Scotland so it is best to make your enquiry in advance. You may require to observe certain formalities especially if you are bringing guns from overseas. In some cases a minimum number of participants may be required.

Choose from first class wing shooting with driven pheasant and grouse, rough shooting, woodcock and some unbelievable goose shooting. There is also deer stalking for red, roe, sika and fallow deer together with a wealth of other sporting activities you can combine such as golf, fishing, hill walking and Munro climbing.
