SCSTG hosts European Journalists

SCSTG was pleased to welcome five European journalists on a press familiarisation trip to introduce them to some of the superb sport and accommodation that Scotland has to offer.  Attendees from France (‘Chassons’ and ‘Voyages de Chasse’), Sweden (‘Big Game’ ), Norway (‘Jakt & Fiske’) and Germany (‘Hunter’s Path’) spent 2 nights at Glenapp Castle Hotel in Ayrshire and had a morning’s shooting at Sorn Castle, followed by a whisky tasting at AD Rattray’s Whisky Experience.  They then flew to the Isle of Harris for 2 nights’ accommodation at Borve Lodge Estate, where they had an afternoon’s fly fishing followed by a morning’s stalking, and also sampled gin from the Harris Distillery.

The journalists all thoroughly enjoyed their visit –

”I would like to thank you a lot for our incredible trip in Scotland.”

”The organisation was very good and the places were fantastic.”

”Great sport”

Andrew Grainger, SCSTG Project Co-ordinator, said ”It was a privilege to be able to showcase the high quality accommodation, wonderfully prepared, locally sourced food and world class sport that Scotland has to offer to a group of journalists from across Europe.”

Many thanks to all our hosts for their fantastic hospitality.
