Sporting Terms and Conditions

The following is applicable to all shooting persons:


You must be in possession of a valid British Firearm/Shotgun Licence or a Visitor's Permit to satisfy the legal requirement. Please note that where possible, we will give assistance for the acquisition of a Visitor's Permit and pass on any costs incurred to the gun. Allow adequate time for this as there can be a delay of several weeks.


You will need to bring your own shotgun or in the case of stalking, a rifle with a calibre of not less than .240 inches, and it must not be the automatic or semi-automatic variety.


For stalking, and in some circumstances, we may be able to arrange for the hire of an Estate rifle.


You must have an insurance policy to cover against third party risks while shooting, for a minimum of £10,000,000.


We require the name of your Insurer (eg. BASC)


You must be in possession of a valid Game Licence (available from Scottish Post Offices). You will need to bring your own supply of soft-nosed bullets or shotgun cartridges - 5 to 7 shot size preferable.


Salmon and Trout Fishing

The Angler must be in possession of a Licence, as specified by the River Authority. Fishing is by rod and line only and the lure/bait used may be artificial flies, spinners and worms, etc. However, please note that prawn and shrimp are not permitted. Fishing is on Saturday and weekdays only.

Booking and Payment

When a booking is requested for sporting services by telephone, fax or letter, we will forward an invoice to the principal member of the party for 50% of the total price of the let. This amount should be paid within 14 days to fully confirm the booking. A further invoice will be sent for the balance, which should be paid no later than 6 weeks prior to the commencement of the let. Where a booking is made 8 weeks or less prior to the commencement of the let, the full amount will be invoiced and payment thereof will fully confirm the booking.


All prices quoted are in £ Sterling and do not include VAT, which will be added at the rate applicable on the date of invoice.


In the event of cancellation by the client, we will make every effort to re-let, however, quite often it is only possible by reducing the price due to short notice. Any such shortfall will be deducted from your booking deposit and providing we have sufficient notice, the balance will be repaid.


In the event of our having to cancel due to circumstances beyond our control, the client will be due either a total refund of monies paid or the let may be rebooked for a later date. We regret that we are unable to accept any further responsibility, financial or otherwise.
