The majestic red deer roams wild on the Ardnamurchan peninsular. Stalking hinds in this unique environment presents a challenge that has inspired sportsmen throughout the world. A day on the hill culminating in a successful stalk, is the very pinnacle of many hunter’s ambitions. Hinds can be taken in a number of ways; traditionally, stalking is an all day adventure on the open hill which starts by locating a suitable animal and then a lengthy approach using the terrain to conceal the hunters, often ending with a belly crawl into the firing position. Throughout the whole experience, your guide will advise you. The selection of the animal is taken by your guide will select the animal to safeguard the success of the herd and to ensure that you are left with a memorable hunt.
Not every hunter is suited to traversing the arduous terrain so we also offer a ‘woodland experience.’ Typically this is conducted in both the early morning and evening and might involve stalking along the forest edge or from high seats. Some of our high seats are also suitable for disabled access.
