Visit Cairngorms

Field Sports in the Cairngorms National Park

The Cairngorms National Park has some of the best of what Scottish country sports has to offer, wonderful salmon fishing on the world famous Rivers Spey, Dee and Findhorn, plus extensive trout fishing on lochs and rivers and it is one of the classic grouse shooting areas and stag stalking areas in the country including the Aviemore area, Angus Glens, Royal Deeside, Glenlivet, Atholl and Glenshee areas.
Grouse shooting can be either walked up or driven and in addition, many estates offer pheasant and partridge shoots on the lower ground, not to mention clay pigeon shooting. Many of the estates have their own unique accommodation options, often traditional hunting lodges (which have been brought up to 21st century standards!) and make a great option for groups to all stay together and really soak in the country sports atmosphere!
