Alvie & Dalraddy estate
Alvie and Dalraddy estate offer Grouse shooting & walked up pheasant shooting and duck shooting
Alvie moorlands are dedicated to grouse shooting between 12th August and the first week in September.
Red grouse, and occasionally blue hare, are in abundance over much of the moorland but population sizes are dependant on winter mortality and breeding success in the spring. As a result numbers are subject to dramatic fluctuations. Expected daily bags are normally in the region of 40 brace (80 birds) for 8-9 guns but have been known to fluctuate between 15 and over 100 brace (200 birds).
Grouse shooting can be adversely affected by inclement weather. Both sleet and snow have been known on Alvie's moors even in August. Shooting clients and their guests are expected to be attired in clothing that will blend in with the surroundings suitable for inclement weather.
For walking up grouse participants should be fit enough to walk up to 5 miles over rough terrain carrying a gun safely.
For driven grouse participants should be capable of walking up to 2 miles. Blue Hare may be shot during grouse shooting days at the discretion of the Head Gamekeeper. There is a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 9 shooting participants per day.
Low Ground Shooting
On the lower ground, the lochans attract a variety of duck while the surrounding farm land and forestry is home to rabbits, brown hares, woodpigeon plus the occasional partridge. Pheasants are sometimes put down to supplement the rough shooting bags from November to February.
Duck Flighting takes place on ponds, rivers and lochs on the Estate low ground. The open season for duck from 1st September to the end of January. On Alvie we prefer to finish duck shooting when the open water freezes over normally around the end of December. Duck are shot at dusk from mixed stances.

Rabbits and hares are always plentiful, in addition pheasant, pigeon and partridge can also be expected in the bag.
