DESCRIPTION

 

In Scotland rough shooting is physical as practiced in weather challenging conditions and hilly territories. Hunters have to be prepared to walk on uneven grounds, steep slopes sometimes humid and during several hours.

Physical fitness of hunters should not be exagerated to run in the Scottish Moors, but healthy walking capabilities are needed to hunt woodcocks. 

This hunt is about wild birds and results are always depending on the weather conditions.

HUNTED SPECIES


 

Woodcock (scolopax rusticola) is a fascinating bird that migrates from the north and find on its way Scotland. Its migration totally depends on the weather and cannot be forcasted with certainties.

 

 

 

 

 

Before reaching Ireland lot of birds stop on the west coast of the Hebrides’ Island : in particular on the Isle of Lewis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HUNTING AREAS

 

The Hebrides are known as the “long islands” as they stretch for 100 miles. The Isle of Lewis is the most northerly island and has the capital, Stornoway on its eastern side.

Lewis’ coastline is severely indented into a number of large sea lochs creating fascinating scenery: chain of beaches, moorland and mountain.

 

 

Lewis supports thriving populations of grouse, red deer, and migratory populations of woodcock.

 

It’s a rural myth that woodcock live in the trees: long heather provides cover, making these challenging birds a sporting target when flushed over dogs on the open hill. Besides being home to a resident population, Lewis is on the Scandinavian flight path, luring woodcock in numbers to shores warmed by the Gulf Stream.
