Murthly & Strathbraan Estates are situated at the entrance to the Scottish Highlands.
The Estate is wonderfully located by the river Tay near Dunkeld. Murthly & Strathbraan Estates extends to some 11,000 acres. The ground ranges from rolling arable land with ancient woodlands up to the Strathbraan Hills to the West. The Estate benefits from excellent topography allowing us to show superb driven partridges and pheasants.
A day’s shooting or stalking at Murthly & Strathbraan Estates begins with a warm welcome from our head keeper Fergus McGregor and his team, at a traditional Perthshire farm court which has been converted for the use of guns, and is heated by a wood-burning stove.
Since 2002, Fergus has continuously improved the shooting experience, using the wide variety of terrain to be found at the foot of the soft Perthshire Highlands to give you an exciting and varied day out. As a result we have built up a loyal customer base, with shooting parties returning year after year to sample the new challenges set to them by Fergus and enjoy his company.
The beauty of the Estate’s natural setting and designed landscape is irresistible to many. There is partridge shooting over heather, birch woods and upland; pheasant shooting in the landscaped grounds around the castle, with their mature Douglas Firs, California Redwoods, and other specimen trees; and walked-up shooting anywhere in the fine woods.
We also offer stalking on the Estate, with red, roe and fallow deer all present. This allows you to sample the whole variety of terrain that Highland Perthshire has to offer within an area of a just a few square miles, thanks to the Estate’s position at the foot of the Highlands.
