Ptarmigan

Ptarmigan are relatively scarce members of the grouse family and are confined to Scotland’s beautiful mountain tops, generally above 700 metres.

Walking steep, rocky, slippery ground and taking your shot under pressure of fatigue is the challenge in shooting these stunning birds. If you like a physical challenge and appreciate the beauty of Scotland’s high tops then ptarmigan shooting is for you. The ptarmigan is only occasionally shot, and in small numbers, when there is considered to be a surplus. Living in such a hostile and fragile environment means this icon of Scottish field sports requires careful management. Usually shot walked-up by an individual or very small parties of Guns.
