Deerstalking & Woodcock on Raasay

West Highland Hunting is now able to offer red deer stalking and woodcock shooting on the remote Isle of Raasay in the Inner Hebrides.

Tucked between the Isle of Skye to the west and the Scottish mainland to the east, Raasay is one of the most beautiful islands in the Inner Hebrides and its sporting rights are managed by a group of local crofters. The island is just 14 miles long by 4 miles wide and home to a population of 150 people.

Raasay Crofters’ Association secretary, Anne Gillies, commented: “We are delighted to add West Highland Hunting to our client base and look forward to working with them. We can offer West Highland Hunting’s clients a stunning new location and West Highland Hunting can help us to build on our successes to date, bringing new ideas and people to Raasay to experience the incredible scenery and excellent sport. We want to make the most of the opportunity we have, to develop our enterprise and to benefit the whole Raasay community by attracting visitors to sustain local businesses. West Highland Hunting’s obvious expertise and experience will help us do just that.”

Sporting Manager for West Highland Hunting, Niall Rowantree added: “‘We are delighted to be working with the people of Raasay to offer some of the finest sport in Scotland. The Island of Raasay is a Hebridean jewel and is managed by the local people to maintain the island in top condition. It offers first class accommodation, a traditional Highland welcome and an opportunity to enjoy the sport exclusively during your stay.”
