2023/24: Spring & Summer Pigeon Shooting

01/02/2023 - 15/09/2024

SAC Sporting

SAC Shooting is keen to support young people coming into the sport, therefore they offer those under 16s to shoot for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

In the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire, Scotland, Scott A. Cruickshank operates SAC Shooting from Mintlaw. This North East corner of Aberdeenshire in Scotland, known as Buchan, is primarily an agricultural farming and fishing country.

Due to the downturn in both these industries, along with the decline in the oil and gas offshore industry, leisure pursuits are growing and developing, hence the popularity of goose and other game bird shooting.

Parties come from all over Britain, Ireland, Australia, the USA, and the continent for the shooting. Shooters can enjoy the fine local fare at the prestigious local Saplinbrae Hotel and Lodges, originally built in 1756 by Lord Pitfour; it was originally a coaching inn, before becoming a rectory, a country house, and finally a hotel in the 20th century.
