Single guns are available on five star Pheasant and Partridge shoots in the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. These are well established shoots showing birds of the very highest quality in beautiful surroundings.

Eskdale shooting services have been in business for over 30 years and specialise in offering  high quality driven  Pheasant and Partridge shooting in the stunning surroundings of the Scottish Borders.With the scope to provide in the region of 15 consecutive days of exceptionally high driven Partridge without doing the same drive,Eskdale Shooting Services is without doubt one of the premier high bird venues in the UK.

Join teams shooting on our renouned high bird shoots.ThirlestaneCastle,Longcroft,Tollishill  and Burncastle are situated on the South East side of the Lammermuirs hills and are only 40 minutes drive from both Edinburgh airport and Berwick-upon-Tweed Train station.

Set in steep valleys on the edge of the Grouse moor the fabulous shooting is complemented by the magnificent scenery.Drives such as Dead Mans Gully,The East Side,Jimmy's,Blaeberrys,The Pig Wood,The Quarry,Cosy Cleuch and The Cattle Grid need to be seen to be believed.

The Bowmont Valley and Greenhill are situated in stunning scenery in the heart of the Cheviot Hills.Owned by the Duke of Roxburghe we have developed both shoots over the last 14 years.

Renouned for the fabulous quality available on both shoots both are a must for anyone looking for the ultimate shooting test.

Drives like Sourhope,Gloomy Cleuch,The Kings Seat,Auchope Cottage,Dodd Hill The Red Gyle,The Dam,Drouke Knowe and Mainside to name a few are a match for any drives in the country.

We have guns available to join high quality Pheasant and Partridge days and can also accommodate full teams of guns.

With a great choice to top class accommodation ranging from the award winning Roxburghe Hotel and Golf Course to good quality small hotels there is something to suit everyone.

New for the 2014 Season we also have the magnificent Lylestane House Shooting Lodge,set in the centre of our shooting at Lylestane,Thirlestane,Longcroft,Burncastle and Tollishill it is ony 2-3 minutes from a large number of our 5 star drives.

We supply a mid morning snack with bullshot, followed by lunch with good wines. Transportation around the shoot is included in the price. All pickers-up are supplied by us but guns are welcome to bring properly behaved dogs.

Loaders are supplied by us, but guns are welcome to bring their own loader if they wish. There are no cartridge restrictions.

A tremendous range of country house hotels are available, such as The Roxburghe  Hotel near Kelso, Tillmouth Park near Coldstream and Dryburgh Abbey.
Stunning Private houses can also be arranged such as Manderstane House and Greenhill Lodge.

All three estates are within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Newcastle Airports and London Kings Cross to Berwick-upon-Tweed by train is a great option at around 3.5hrs.

Top quality Pigeon shooting and Roe Deer stalking are also available.

Testimonial
Nov 2011
Without any doubt the best driven shooting in the British Isles and I have shot at many places in all corners of the UK, at many well known commercial and/or private shoots. The very high quality of the birds is matched only by the spectacular surroundings, without roads, houses, telephone poles or other infringements on the georgeous views and the feeling of being totally outside, doing something that belongs in these places. The organization of the days is always smooth, never a panic and quite incredible if one considers the terrain and distances the beaters cover.
