The sixth annual inter-estate competition is run to celebrate Scottish estates and raise awareness of the tireless work carried out by their ghillies and gamekeepers to preserve and care for the countryside. It saw teams of six showcasing their skills in shooting, fishing and gundog handling, with two shooting a clay pigeon shooting layout, two completing a series of blind retrieves using any type of gundog and two took part in a salmon and trout casting competition.
Abercairny’s team, which scored 274 points, was made up of gamekeeper John Burton, estate worker Stewart Campbell, and from the shoot Colin Scott, Peter Series, Drew Barr as well as estate manager Daniel Parker, who commented: “We all really believe in the work carried out by the GWCT so are always happy to support in any way we can. This competition was a lot of fun – we have only ever entered once before so were thrilled to win. The fishing element seemed to be our strong point.”
The winning team took home the trophy and a bottle of LIMITED scotch whisky each from Whisky Partners.
Next year’s event takes place from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 July 2024.
