Shooting The estate offers both high quality driven pheasant and partridge shoots with bags of 150–300 being achieved. There are over 30 named drives across the estate with the most popular amongst guests being The Lera, The Cairns and Crams Point. The varied topography of the estate allows for a range of differing birds to be offered, with birds driven over deep woodland gulleys and off open heather hill. In addition, there are a number of ponds on the estate hosting duck throughout the season. Arniefoul pond provides challenging driven duck and a great end to a day’s shooting. Rough shooting is available on request. Roe Stalking Strathmore is renowned for consistently providing exciting roe stalking throughout the season with first class medal standard bucks on offer. The buck stalking has attracted guests from around the world for many years with most returning annually. Doe stalking is also available when in season. The stalking is accompanied by professional stalkers with 2 rifles being accommodated.

The Castle is situated in the heart of the estate and set within landscaped grounds and gardens. The childhood home of HRH Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and the setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the castle is steeped in history and tradition. During shoot days the guns are met at the front door and provided with tea and coffee in the 16th Century Castle Kitchens, where lunch and afternoon tea are also provided later in the day.  Included in a day’s shooting is a 45-minute guided tour of the castle should guests wish.
