If you love your game shooting then you really must visit Eskdale. We attended this shoot as an experienced team but were astounded by the wonderful scenery and stunning presentation of game in a delightfully relaxed manner. Expertly hosted by Wilson Young who crafted a day which saw 70% of an experienced line shoot the most memorable shot they had ever taken. This is game shooting on another level, living the dream in the Scottish Borders. A most exhilarating and privileged place to shoot in a friendly welcoming atmosphere.

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.
