Shooting at Murthly begins with a warm welcome from our head keeper Fergus McGregor, in a converted traditional Perthshire farm court heated by a wood-burning stove. The wide variety of terrain in this part of Perthshire, which straddles both Highland and Lowland ground, makes for an exciting day out with different challenges. There is partridge shooting over heather, birch woods and upland; pheasant shooting in the landscaped grounds around the castle, with their mature Douglas Firs, California Redwoods, and other specimen trees; and walked-up shooting anywhere in the fine woods. The beauty of the Estate's natural setting and designed landscape is irresistible to many, and many of our shooting parties return year after year to enjoy both the landscape and the company. We also offer stalking on the Estate, with red, roe and fallow deer all present. Stalking allows you to experience the whole variety of terrain that Perthshire has to offer within an area of a just a few square miles, thanks to the Estate's position at the foot of the Highlands.
