Driven shooting at Broomhall House and Estate

broomhall house and estateIt's no secret that there is a lot of outstanding game shooting to be had in Scotland, but have you ever come across Broomhall House and Estate, situated on the north shore of the Firth of Forth? 

The 2,500-acre estate has a distinctive landscape made up of wooded ridges and gently rolling farmland that is well-managed to offer 200-bird days throughout the season. Since the 1750s, over 70 woodlands have been established and now provide ideal coverts for holding game, whilst extensive quarrying for limestone in the 18th and 19th centuries has sculpted a terrain which lends itself to the creation of challenging pheasant and partridge drives.

The principal seat of the Earls of Elgin and Kincardine, Broomhall House and its surrounding estate has been looked after by 13 successive generations of the Bruce family – lineal descendants of King Robert the Bruce. Several members of the British Royal Family have also enjoyed visits to Broomhall over the past 150 years, some even extending their stay to shoot on this traditional Lowland estate. 

On all shoot days, the party is transported to each drive by gunbus and given the opportunity to shoot pheasants, partridges, woodcock and occasionally wild ducks.
