Stalking and Hunting Breaks in Scotland
Stalking red or roe deer is a fascinating way to discover Scotland's landscape and culture. You will spend
time walking through beautiful landscapes - mountains, glens and forests - as you go in search of the deer. You will spend
time with local stalkers on the hill and often join them for a wee dram of whisky in a local pub after the stalk - so it also
gives you an insight to Scottish life and culture. Finally, the tradition of deer stalking will offer you an insight of Scottish
culture which many other visitors will never experience.
If there are non-stalkers in your group, they can simply enjoy the scenery or take advantage of the superb
accommodation and diverse range of activities now offered by many of Scotland's leading stalking escapes. If you are planning
your next stalking trip, Scotland should be top of your list of destinations.

Stalking in Scotland
The most popular type of deer stalking in Scotland is for Red Deer. These magnificent animals are a symbol of Scotland and
a red deer stag with a full set of antlers is a sight to behold. Most red deer stalking takes place in the Highlands.
Roe deer stalking also takes place in Scotland and is an increasingly popular sport, as roe deer numbers are now said
to at least match the population of red deer in Scotland.
Deer Stalking Information and Ethics
Deer stalking is the term we use in Scotland for hunting and shooting deer. It is an important part
of modern day land management. It also contributes to the local economy, helps protect many native plants and species and
maintain a healthy and strong population of red deer. Deer stalking is also a traditional activity in Scotland, a link to
the traditional culture of the Highlands.
Deer stalking should not be just about the kill. It must be part of the land management plan which
is aimed at reducing the near-chronic over population of red deer in Scotland, as well as the growing population of roe deer.
