Shooting grouse in Scotland still remains for many the pinnacle of the sport and arguably grouse at their most challenging, even in the earlier months.

The Glenburnie moor is part of the much larger Thirlestane estate and borders such famous moors as Rawburn on the Roxburghe estate.

Twenty-seven miles southeast of Edinburgh lies the attractive Borders town of Lauder and, below it, situated in glorious parkland beside the River Leader, is the huge and magnificent Thirlestane Castle.

Thirlestane Castle now stands dates back to at least the 12th Century. The central part of the present castle was completed in 1590, remodelled in the 1670s and then enlarged in the 1840s.

Good access from the south via the A1 and also within easy driving for those who wish to fly from Edinburgh.

Red Grouse

Early August until mid-October.

All teams will meet at Thirlestane for coffee and briefing, we will also meet loaders and plan for the day before heading up onto the moor. Lunch will be taken in one of the bothy's and we will stop for refreshments after each drive.

Locally there are a number of great pubs and hotels, or at Thirlestane Castle itself.
